Sheppey’s First Ever Business Startup Centre

We are so thrilled to announce the recent opening of our very first Business Startup Centre here on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent.

In the first couple of months we have had over 20 people through the doors and already have helped 5 of these get their business from concept to reality. These will be the first of many.

The workspace we have created will hopefully inspire local people to think outside the box and come up with sustainable business concepts that will create much needed jobs here on Sheppey.

It really is an exciting project to be working on and I would like to thank Matthew and Michael Brown, Jim Beeching, Steve Dobson and Sam Reid for all their hard work in bringing this old grade II listed building back into use.

We exist to create an environment where innovative and entrepreneurial people can thrive and to help spot opportunities and forge relationships between like-minded people who can grasp the opportunities and create value from them. This includes creating a support structure of proven mentors and skilled business support service providers needed to help turn concepts into realities.

If you are based on the Island and have a business idea then we would love to hear from you; if you are an existing business owner who is looking for help to grow their business then get in touch to see how we might be able to help.

We also want to hear from proven professionals who are prepared to be a mentor or provide business support services.

Above are some of the images that have been causing quite a stir amongst the local community. Everyone who has visited leaves raving about what we have done with the place.

There is however nothing better than seeing things in person, so be sure to contact us and make an arrangement to swing on by and take a look for yourself. We’d love to have you come and join us on our journey.

Thanks for stopping by.
