ELBA is an alliance of 120 of the biggest corporate names in the UK, determined to help the regeneration of East London. Our companies are national and global players focused on London’s East End. For the past 18 years the alliance has brought to this effort a small army of private sector volunteers. ELBA places over 8,000 such volunteers every year offering pro-bono legal advice, business planning advice, mentoring and other interventions aimed at building the capacity of five hundred local not-for-profit organisations. In recent years we have developed a major effort around the legacy of the Olympics.
Canary Wharf Group plc is an integrated property development, investment and management group of companies. It is focussed on the design, construction, leasing and management of grade A office space and high-quality retail and leisure facilities in central London. Over the past 20 years Canary Wharf Group has regenerated derelict wharves into one of the world’s premier business and shopping districts, constructing over 16 m sq ft of office space; more than any other company in London. These buildings are occupied by over 100,000 people.
Canary Wharf Group plc (CWG), through programmes such as the East London Business Place has helped to generate over £1 billion worth of business for local companies since 1997. Over 1,700 local companies have benefited from this milestone figure, delivered through Canary Wharf Group’s business support initiatives and joint ventures.
While much of this business relates to the Group’s developments at Canary Wharf, the economic impact of its activity is widening as it continues to expand its footprint in the City and on the South Bank.
In order to deliver a range of programmes and services direct to small to medium enterprises, East London Business Place works in partnership with other support organisations
