Our story began just over 10 years ago, when Delia realised there was a gap in the market to help businesses, particularly those who don’t have the time or specialist skills to do everything themselves.

The solution? To provide a one-stop-shop for trusted business advice and professional services.

Business Clan started at the kitchen table, helping small businesses to have access to expert knowledge and resources to give them the best chances of success.

Since then, have helped 500 businesses and our team has grown 5-fold, all of whom have witnessed the transformation of our humble start-up into a thriving enterprise. We are proud to have overcome challenges, embracing change to adapt to an ever-evolving business landscape.

Today, we’ve established a reputation firmly rooted in SW London, which allowed us in 2023, to smoothly transition ownership.

As we forge ahead, we will continue to innovate, inspire, and create value for our clients. I firmly believe the next ten years will be filled with even greater achievements, stronger partnerships, and continued growth

  • The Story Begins…

    The idea for Business Clan came about when Delia realised there was a gap in the market to help businesses, particularly business owners and managers, who don’t have the time or specialist skills to do everything themselves.

    Our initiative started with the introduction of coding clubs, career conversations, and targeted seminars and presentations on various sectors and services, designed to prepare students for what lies ahead after their schooling.

    Delia Porter, our Founder, was recognised by The Enterprise Nation as one of UK’s top business advisers. She was subsequently invited to visit 10 Downing Street.
