Social Entrepreneur Sought for Brentford
To deliver a community business on Brentford High Street
The deadline for budding entrepreneurs to apply to run a 'social enterprise' in Brentford High Street has now been extended.
In return, the entrepreneur will be expected to give something back to the community, engage with local residents and businesses, and help to attract new customers to Brentford. The business will need to provide a robust financial plan which shows it is financially sustainable and applicants must have the drive and resources to launch the enterprise. The business would ideally fit the planning class of the shop which is retail, but could apply for a change of use. The premises, presently branded ‘Brentford Works’, are not suitable for hot food take away use.
Cabinet Member for Communities and Economic Development, Councillor Sue Sampson, explains: "We are offering budding entrepreneurs a unique opportunity to set up shop in an upcoming part of West London and boost the local retail offer. It's a great chance to get your business idea off the ground and to give something back to the community".
