In praise of Croydon’s failing businesses

Posted on October 21st, by Jonny Rose in Croydon: Tech City, Opinion. 2 comments

Jonny Rose, often found singing the praises of #Croydon #TechCity’s successes, finds the virtue in failure

In 2013, 1,924 new business were established in Croydon (source: DuPort 2013 Annual Business Confidence Report).

And nowhere is it more necessary to captivate than in the tech and start-up industries. In an increasingly diversified, networked and competitive earth, we need to captivate our audiences more than ever, and … Read More »
