Sadiq Khan Announces New Business Advisory Board For London

Leading entrepreneurs and top business figures in London – the majority of whom are women – will form Mayor Sadiq Khan’s new Business Advisory Board.

Sadiq Khan vowed to be London’s most pro-business Mayor ever and has fulfilled a manifesto pledge to set up the board, which will tap into the capital’s leading business expertise as he works to find the solutions to London’s growth challenges, particularly following the recent vote to leave the European Union.


London ranks as Europe’s leading destination for technology and financial services, and is the best city in which to build a European operation according to a post-Brexit survey of over two hundred senior US tech executives.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan will announce the findings today in New York during his international trade mission to North America, aimed at strengthening business ties between London and the US following the EU referendum vote.


Labour’s Sadiq Khan was elected Mayor of London on Saturday after victory over Conservative Zac Goldsmith. But after 8 years of Boris Johnson in City Hall, what does London’s new mayor mean for tech and entrepreneurship in the capital?
