London Southside Chamber of Commerce (LSCC) is here to support its members based or having a business interest in south London to build successful businesses locally and internationally.
In doing so, we also hope to introduce opportunities for our members to champion corporate social responsibility.
LSCC is all about helping your business raise its profile in your local community and further afield, penetrate existing markets and/or enter into new ones. We want to support you by providing the social and business networks that will inspire you to grow and make your business better.
You might be a restaurant owner in Borough Market, a small florist in Clapham or a large accountancy firm in Islington, regardless, LSCC will work hard in creating plenty of networking opportunities for you to talk and meet with potential customers and suppliers at home and abroad.
We are committed to organising events that will appeal to businesses of all sizes and sectors. For example, we run local, informal events such as breakfast meetings for our members to get together to catch up with news as well as international trade missions that give you the chance to have an insight into potential overseas supply bases and markets.
We have excellent links and relationships with local councillors, MPs, other chambers of commerce, business support services and trade organisations both at home and abroad.
LSCC has offices at King William Street (in Central London) and at Streatham Common (in Lambeth).
