Get your business online and benefit from a digital presence

Small retailers in Croydon are being given a golden opportunity to take their business to the next level with the offer of a subsidised training programme to help them compete in the digital age

The Croydon Partnership - the joint venture between developers Westfield and Hammerson - is inviting twelve small business owners to apply for places on a subsidised, digital training programme, aimed at helping them to develop their knowledge of the internet and social media and to learn the benefits of getting their business online.

  • Increase their online presence and become more competitive
  • Develop their multichannel expertise
  • Find and engage with new customers
  • Increase their customer base
  • Widen their geographical reach
  • Access new markets
  • Improve sales and profits

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis so if your business is interested, download the application form now and email it to
