Market Gateway: Bringing Goods to Tower Hamlets

City Gateway is proud to announce the launch of our new social enterprise Market Gateway providing employment for young entrepreneurs in Tower Hamlets, giving them the chance to grow entrepreneurial skills and a passion for business.

Market Gateway provides apprenticeship placements and encourages apprentices to think creatively whilst learning the basics of business and taking on responsibility in the running of the social enterprise. These skills will boost their chances of positive progression on to permanent employment or further apprenticeships with city firms in London. As Thania our Young Entrepreneur says it’s great to see the skills they’ve learnt in the classroom being used practically and with great entrepreneurial spirit!

Market Gateway offers a wide range of toiletries at very Competitive prices; see our apprentices in action below. Market Gateway has started well and will be looking to develop their business with more products and to potentially expand into other areas of Tower Hamlets.

City Gateway is committed to starting sustainable social enterprises in Tower Hamlets that provide local employment opportunities for young people and women and providing an additional funding base for our service provision. Market Gateway joins our other enterprises, Gateway Media, Flavour Gateway, Gateway Motion and Beauty Gateway in an ever growing array of enterprises.
