Business West has just announced the opening of ‘Business West Launch Point’. Located in surplus government offices in Bristol’s Temple Meads, the space, the first in the region, will provide much needed support and encouragement to start-up businesses making the transition from home to their first office space.
Ideally situated beside Temple Meads in a prestigious building in Bristol Enterprise Zone, ‘Business West Launch Point’ provides affordable start-up space offers easy-in, easy-out monthly terms and includes a dedicated workstation with Wi-Fi and broadband, onsite security, and utilities and business rates are also included. All this for an affordable £150 per month and if businesses sign up by the end of September they get the third month free!
However it is not simply about providing office space. This is start-up space with a real difference. Businesses will gain access to the wide ranging support provided by Business West including onsite access to mentors and business advisers as well as 12 months free membership of Business West Chambers of Commerce with all its events and networking opportunities.
Phil Smith, Managing Director of Business West said:
“This centre is the ideal place for businesses to start-up. Not only is it in a fantastic location with affordable costs, but also Business West will provide all the necessary support to move companies from start-up phase to growth and innovation.
“To help overcome the challenges of the first few years of business, our specialist coaches can provide guidance. From producing a solid business plan and identifying key areas for growth, to gaining the right level of finance and fully exploiting innovation, businesses can benefit from specialist advice and practical workshops.
“We are absolutely delighted to be working with Government on this project. With our vast experience of delivering office space throughout Southern England and as the leading organisation for business support in the South West, we are ideally placed to help Bristol businesses grow.”
Business West will be adding another ‘Launch Point’ soon in Aztec West.
