Direct marketing list shows London leads the way for high growth business

September 13, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
A recent survey has revealed that London is currently the UKs leading area for business growth and profitability. The survey of businesses included in the new Prospa database from Selectabase, shows that almost 17% of the UK fastest growing businesses were located in central London Postcodes.

The businesses surveyed are featured in the Prospa direct marketing list, which only includes details of UK companies which have experienced growth of between 10-1000%, and which have also registered profits.

These leads are seen as having greater value for direct marketing and sales purposes, compared to companies that may be growing rapidly, but are yet to achieve profitability.

The strength of London as a location for growing business also extends outwards. One of the next largest areas was the band just outside London, which included over 10% of the UKs fastest growing businesses in postcode areas such as GU, RH, TW and KT.

Scotland came off worst in the survey, with the majority of Scottish rural postcodes coming last, although more growing businesses were to be found in Glasgow.
