GSM London Formation Zone

What is the GSM London Formation Zone?

Whether you have a new business idea or an enterprise that's already up and running, Formation Zone can help you take it to the next level. An award-winning facility for entrepreneurs, Formation Zone gives you access to advice, information and contacts, and offers a supportive and collaborative environment in which to develop your business.

Who is the Formation Zone for?

We support start-ups and existing businesses, as well as social enterprises, right through from the ideas generation stage to launching and expanding your business. Our services are available to anybody in the GSM London Community — staff, students, alumni, local stakeholders — and we’re always interested in hearing about new ideas and opportunities in a range of sectors.

What are the benefits?

Formation Zone gives you the opportunity to meet with business advisors and mentors, plus specialists such as accountants, legal advisors, and Intellectual Property (IP) experts*.

You can also benefit from dedicated workspace for developing your ideas, as well as access to a meeting room and postal address to make your business look and feel more professional.

In addition, a series of Formation Zone events provides opportunities to make connections with other start-ups, GSM London alumni, and external business professionals.
