New hub gives firms a more pro­fes­sional edge

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUSINESS -

Mem­bers of Buck­ing­hamshire Busi­ness First’s Board and the Chair­man of Buck­ing­hamshire County Coun­cil Coun­cil­lor Bill Chap­ple, of­fi­cially opened the fa­cil­ity on Jan­uary 22 with busi­nesses from across the county at­tend­ing the event in or­der to find out more about how the Busi­ness Hub will ben­e­fit them and how they can make the most of the com­pli­men­tary fa­cil­i­ties avail­able.

Mr Chap­ple said: “I am very proud that part of the County Hall com­plex with cen­turies of his­tory is now pro­vid­ing mod­ern, sta­teof-the-art fa­cil­i­ties for lo­cal busi­nesses. We know how im­por­tant all busi­nesses are to the fu­ture suc­cess of our county.

“This third new busi­ness hub is some­thing Bucks County Coun­cil fully sup­ports and I am de­lighted that we have been able to make the ac­com­mo­da­tion avail­able right in the cen­tre of Ayles­bury. I wish the ven­ture and the busi­nesses that use it ev­ery suc­cess in the fu­ture.’”

Buck­ing­hamshire Busi­ness First mem­bers will ben­e­fit from fa­cil­i­ties such as hot desks, in­for­mal meet­ing space, meet­ing rooms for more for­mal meet­ings and free Wi-Fi ac­cess and for the first time, Buck­ing­hamshire Busi­ness First has five low­cost of­fice spa­ces avail­able to rent as in­cu­ba­tor spa­ces for small busi­nesses.

To­mas Pukalski of Frame­work Dig­i­tal, the first ten­ant of the Busi­ness Hub, ex­plains how it will ben­e­fit his busi­ness.

He said: “We are de­lighted to be among the first ten­ants at Porter’s Lodge. For the first time we have a proper of­fice, which means we can work more ef­fi­ciently, take on staff and meet more pro­fes­sion­ally with prospec­tive clients.

“The com­mu­nity el­e­ment of the Porter’s Lodge ven­ture, with the colo­ca­tion of the Buck­ing­hamshire Busi­ness First Hub, was par­tic­u­larly ex­cit­ing and is a re­ally im­por­tant fea­ture when choos­ing of­fices.

“A key part of our goals is to help very small com­pa­nies in Buck­ing­hamshire get on­line in a way that makes sense for them, and at a price they can af­ford. Th­ese of­fices mean that we can meet with clients who do not have of­fices, and con­cen­trate prop­erly on their pro­ject, with­out the dis­trac­tions of a home of­fice en­vi­ron­ment.”
