Knowledge Dock nominated for Business Award

Knowledge Dock and GetSet 4 Growth nominated for Partnership of the Year at The Wharf's Innovation in Business Awards

Knowledge Dock’s partnership with growth experts GetSet For Growth has been nominated for Business Partnership of the Year, part of The Wharf’s Innovation in Business Awards.

Knowledge Dock is UEL’s business and innovation centre and is home to over 100 businesses. It also forms an entrepreneurial hub for students and alumni, with UEL’s student enterprise team based there.

Over the past year, the East London team from GetSet For Growth have worked with Knowledge Dock and UEL’s Student Enterprise team to provide specialist workshops and masterclasses to the university’s vibrant entrepreneurial community. Topics covered have included digital marketing, start-up loan funding and procurement. This coming semester, GetSet For Growth will be a key delivery partner in the Enterprise Accelerate programme, aimed at students and alumni who are looking to expand their existing businesses.

Made up of finance, sales, marketing and business development experts, the GetSet for Growth team is dedicated to offering their support and expertise to SMEs in the East London area, thanks to funding from J.P. Morgan.

“To be shortlisted for such an award is a great honour for GetSet for Growth”, said GetSet For Growth’s Partnership Manager, Tariq Mahmood. “The results of our partnership with Knowledge Dock so far demonstrate how transparent and honest collaboration between organisations can make a huge difference to individuals and businesses. And in such a short time frame!"

Thomas Shorey, Enterprise Marketing Executive at UEL, said “Our partnership with GetSet For Growth has been invaluable, enabling us to provide knowledge and support for entrepreneurs, not only to those with ideas and start-ups, but to students and alumni with larger businesses who want to grow.”

UEL is also sponsoring the New Business of the Year award category with a selection of businesses new to East London being nominated, including Bupa and Porsche Centre East London.

Knowledge Dock and GetSet For Growth will find out the result at The Wharf’s award ceremony next Thursday evening. Follow @UELenterprise on Twitter for the latest news from the event.
