WHY DID YOU CHOOSE LONDON?
My wife and I arrived in London in 2002 so that she could complete her bachelor’s degree at Western University. I launched my business in 2007. The safe neighbourhoods, affordable real estate, excellent education and healthcare made it an attractive place to raise a family. Located on a major highway, London offers easy access to our customers in Toronto and Windsor. LEDC provides valuable resources and connections to funding and research opportunities to grow your business.
