Collaboration, connection and community is at the core of what we stand for – whether that’s helping our customers to forge links with like-minded businesses or creating a strong sense of community between our buildings, fuelling growth and helping entrepreneurs to flourish are our primary aims.
From start-up companies just beginning their journey to fully-fledged, multi-national businesses strengthening their presence in our cities, ambition and, importantly, access to the right networks are key in securing growth.
Each year, Global Entrepreneurship Week champions innovators from around the world, who have all used their talent and sheer dedication to succeed in their field. Taking place from 18 November, it celebrates those who bring their ideas to life and help inspire future generations.
At Bruntwood, we are firm believers that entrepreneurs are crucial to the economic success of our regions, delivering jobs and investment to make a significant contribution to the UK economy. And, as part of our commitment to creating thriving cities, we ensure that all of our locations provide the tools to help start-ups and growing businesses truly flourish.
Here’s a snapshot of how we are championing entrepreneurs and nurturing their growth.
Right place, right space
From co-working spaces and hot desking through to serviced and leased offices, we have carved a reputation for accommodating a business as they progress on their business journey. Shared spaces offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to network and build relationships with like-minded businesses, while still having access to a high-quality, vibrant space. Take a look at which type of space might suit you here.
Free Workspace Wednesdays
Taking place in our inspiring spaces across the North West and Leeds, Free Workspace Wednesdays offers freelancers, remote workers and start-ups somewhere to work, collaborate and connect with others. Find your nearest event here.
The Bruntwood Collective
Launched earlier this year, The Bruntwood Collective is an online gateway that offers our customers a range of benefits, designed to support collaborative communities and help businesses thrive. It features networking and social events, as well as giving businesses the chance to advertise job vacancies and promote their own events.
Enterprise Nation partnership
Our link-up means our customers have access to networking events, online masterclasses and expert advice, all provided by small business support network Enterprise Nation. This partnership is paramount in supercharging entrepreneurs’ growth and helping to build their profile.
To mark Global Entrepreneurship Week, we will be running a calendar of activity designed to not only showcase the success stories of our customers, but to also highlight how we are supporting the start-up community to reach – and surpass – their goals. From digital skills training workshops to first-hand accounts of entrepreneur successes, we are passionate about celebrating the talent and innovation that make our regions so successful.
