Fledgling start-up businesses are being offered a “stepping stone to success” following the rare release of space at the Bracknell Enterprise & Innovation Hub.
The innovation centre, located in the heart of Bracknell’s town centre, has two offices available on the ninth and tenth floors offering 1,100 sq ft and 1,200 sq ft of work space both complete with separate rooms and amazing views of Bracknell Forest.
Centre Director, Shelley Furey, said: “Both offices provide a professional image and environment to allow for business growth and development. These serviced offices can be occupied on a flexible agreement. With access to conference, meeting and kitchen facilities, all offices are supported by reception, security and administration.
“It is a bustling business hub located in the heart of the town centre. This is the perfect, rarely available, opportunity for two start-up businesses to come and join the community here.”
Office 901 is suitable for 15 people and offers a separate meeting room. The other, office 1013, is suitable for 20 people and includes three individual offices.
The space has become available after two businesses re-scaled their plans including Modha Properties, which has moved into a warehouse to store steel which they produce for new housing.
Shelley added: “Bracknell Enterprise and Innovation Hub offers high-quality, bespoke office space to small pioneering businesses. A lively community of entrepreneurs and visionaries form the support network to resident businesses.
“Regular networking events take place, providing access to an extended, external pool of support. We are committed to providing a home for Bracknell’s finest innovators.”
Gareth Wright, Managing and Creative Director, of Engage Convert Ltd, a branding and design agency based at the Bracknell Innovation Centre praised the support available.
He said: “The staff at the centre are now an extension of our own team and also extend our client experience. The hub offers us the ultimate in flexibility.
“As a creative company the space that we work in is so important to us. It has allowed us to fully tailor our offices to our exact needs. We’ve set up a creative studio and office here that represents our brand, a space that inspires ideas and creativity. Our clients love the space too. The facilities for any business are vital.
“The hub also has a real buzz, lots of innovation and developments are happening here, it has a real sense of support. We do business with other companies based here and we all have a real sense of community. I couldn’t recommend it enough.”
