Starting a new business in Kent

With London on the door step and strong travel links by road, rail, air and sea, Kent offers businesses a prime location to operate in and grow from both nationally and internationally.

Ashford was recently voted as the best place to do business in Kent, with excellent road and rail links to London helping it to clinch the title from Maidstone.

The large and varied business scene sees start-ups and multi-nationals working alongside each other in a range of industries, spanning logistics, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals to name just a few.

A large and skilled workforce provides businesses with ample opportunity to hire as they grow and with four universities in Kent, companies have their pick of talented and enthusiastic graduates.

More than 13,000 businesses were registered in Kent during 2014, Medway led the way with almost 2000 new companies formed, closely followed by Maidstone and Sevenoaks with 1,260 and 1,214 start-ups respectively.

With a burgeoning start-up scene, there is plenty of support available for new businesses. From support organisations and services, co-working space, networking bodies and finance providers you’ll be in good hands.
