Entrepreneurs looking for business support and advice are invited to attend monthly networking events in Croydon.
Ecademy Croydon is run by business adviser, coach and mentor Wendy Ager.
The mother-of-two attended the workshops for advice and support after starting her own business, Get Better Coaching in May 2010.
Mrs Ager said: "I'd been to other workshops where there were lots of people and I found it quite overpowering.
"I liked Ecademy because it was fairly small, relaxed and informal.
"Each meeting had a speaker and each time you went you would learn something you could put to use in your business."
Mrs Ager took over the running of the group last year after successfully completing a Personal Performance Coaching course.
She now supports other people looking to start or grow their businesses.
The Ecademy's next meeting is tomorrow, April 26, at Chefs, in Croydon College, Park Lane, where the topic of solving customer problems will be discussed.
