North Kensington Connected Business Forum (NKC)

Grow your network. Join our exclusive space for entrepreneurs from North Kensington to connect and grow, North Kensington Connected Business Forum.

North Kensimgton Connected Business Forum

Portobello Business Centre have undertaken considerable work resulting in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea asking us to proceed in partnership with the Council and local businesses to develop a Business Forum.

North Kensington Connected (also known as “NKC”) is growing steadily and we now have over 120 businesses of differing sizes as part of the Forum. These range from sole traders to businesses with almost 50 employees. We run a networking event every 2-3 months as this allows new businesses to enhance their networks, discuss local matters, solve community’s issues and have fun.

Businesses have the opportunity to meet the leading RBKC representatives and converse in a relaxed environment about a range of topics.

Our mission statement is: To enable the businesses of North Kensington to develop long-term success through mutual collaboration and a network of support.

You can check our upcoming workshops and events page here, for the next NKC event that will be announced soon.

  • Network on a regular basis with other like-minded business owners
