Business Support

We know every business is different, and so our programme of support is tailored to your individual needs. We offer help and advice to businesses working in the manufacturing, engineering technology, specialist construction and intelligent transport sectors, within East London and the Thames Gateway. Business support is offered on a one-to-one basis, and in groups through seminars and workshops. Whether you are an existing established business, a one-man start-up or an SME who is struggling to find their way, CEME can help.

Looking for Credit or Investment?

Is your business:

  • Looking for a loan or credit?
  • Interested in purchasing or leasing machinery, computers or cars?
  • Expanding?
  • Looking for investment?
  • Seeking advice about how to manage your cashflow?
  • Looking for help accessing grants and funding?

Then talk to us first. We can offer solutions to real business needs, while also tackling the tricky subject of market failure head on. Whether you are looking for an investor, nervous about taking the plunge with credit, or just need a financial steer on cash flow, we have a proven track record of delivering expert, honest business support.

We can help you access grants and funding too. Whether you just want to know the basics and go it alone, or want practical help and guidance, through the the entire application process, we will be by your side.

And if you are a start-up, the old saying that in business “it’s not always what you know, but who you know” still rings true. CEME has links to a number of local partner organisations specialising in accelerating the growth of start-ups. Through us, you can access a whole range of additional services to see you through those first tricky years.
