Engaging with businesses

Watford welcomes and engages with new investors to ensure they are connected into the local business community as much as they require and that every support necessary is given to their growth.

  • Watford Welcomes is a soft-landing welcome package of support and introductions designed to support businesses setting up in Watford
  • Watford Aftercare is an ongoing engagement with Watford Borough Council to ensure business issues are heard and addressed where possible and that opportunities to expand are supported
  • Watford’s business networks bring together groups of businesses in the same sector or location to encourage networking and highlight shared opportunities

From 10 October 2020 @CompaniesHouse will resume the process to remove a company from the register if there’s reasonable cause to believe it’s no longer carrying on business or in operation. Make sure you're company documents are up to date and filed before this date.

If you're thinking about starting a business and aren't sure if it's for you, join the @TheWentaGroup @WentaWatford #freewebinar today 3.30pm-5pm - 'Is Starting A Business For Me?'.

Welcome back to Watford town centre – shop local, stay safe

Watford town centre, and other retail areas across the town, are gearing up to welcome people back as non-essential shops and venues have started to re-open, with a range of measures in place to make sure they can shop safely and with confidence.

Shops and businesses are doing what is needed to keep their staff and customers safe. We are looking forward to welcoming people back to the High Street and other shopping areas across the town. Whilst they may look and feel a bit different, we are all looking forward to a return of some sort of normality, bringing vibrancy back to the town!

Watford businesses have done an amazing job to make sure they can open safely, while we all as individuals should do our part keeping a safe distance from others and washing or sanitising our hands regularly.
