Regeneris were commissioned to carry out formative and final evaluations of a 10 borough business support programme supported by the London Development Agency and Canary Wharf Group. The purpose of which was to measure success, identify what has and hasn't worked well, and to inform options for the future.
East London Business Place targets work with SMEs in the ten east London boroughs to ensure that they are in the best possible position to benefit from the supply chain benefits from being located so close to Canary Wharf, The City and the 2012 Olympic Park. The project provides business support and also offers a service which matches suppliers to buyers.
The evaluation included a survey of ELBP beneficiaries and consultation with corporate partners and buyers, as well as predicting future economic benefits of the programme. Recommendations were made to ensure that the programme was able to continue beyond its funding period.
We have since been asked to evaluate the Bishops Square Procurement Support project which is managed by ELBP.
