The purpose of Pop Brixton is to provide affordable commercial space in a beneficial trading environment, to socially minded, independent businesses making a positive impact in their local community.
The site is now home to 53 small businesses working in retail, food, social enterprise, light manufacturing, the arts and the creative industries.
Members are selected based on a transparent selection criteria that scores them for:
- Quality of Business Plan
- Locality to the project
- Alignment to the project's ethos of supporting the local community
- Commitment to participate in the Community Investment Scheme
Final selection also depends on curating a community of members that compliment each other and do not result in internal competition.
