The deadline to become a member is this Friday! What do businesses receive if they join?


There’s just five days to go! Our IndieGoGo campaign deadline is midnight this Friday the 8th July. If you’re self employed or own a business, don’t leave it too late to get a spot on our new Herb Lester map and to be involved with East End Independents’ day on Saturday 3rd December.

If we reach our funding goal we will work with all the small businesses that pledge their advance membership to develop bespoke events, talks and walking tours on Small Business Saturday 3rd December. We want to celebrate the diversity and value that independents bring to our neighbourhoods, and simultaneously grow the capacity and collective voice we need to innovate for positive change on the issues our members care about.

In the last five days of our campaign we thought we would reiterate our mission and all the other benefits that members receive in return for their dues;

OUR MISSION is to bring the small businesses of the East End together to speak with one voice, harnessing public support and educating policy makers on the economic, social and cultural value that they bring to our neighbourhoods. Through our events and workshops we strengthen collaboration and trade between members and the wider community. By working with like-minded organisations we pursue innovation and positive change on the issues to effect small independents and the places to which they belong.

Business membership benefits include;

  • Marketing inclusion to the new EETG Independents’ Day and map + a new improved website listing
  • A welcome pack will include; welcome letter, a tote bag, window sticker and schedule of 12 EETG social events for the year plus copies of our Herb Lester maps
  • Monthly social events designed to meet the needs and ideas of the membership
  • Being involved /or represented in policy initiatives and network innovation at borough and London region level
  • Apprenticeship opportunities
  • Professional legal advice workshops on lease terms, security of tenure and rent reviews
  • Internal trading & collaboration plus supply chain and circular economy activity
  • A strong voice for small independent business that can compel positive change for the membership and their neighbourhoods
