Ambition Broxbourne Business Centre Officially Opens
The Ambition Broxbourne Business Centre, towards which Hertfordshire LEP contributed £1.8m, has officially opened. The occasion was marked by a handover event on Thursday 12 January 2017.
The Centre has 68 office and studio units between 160 sq. ft. and 652 sq. ft., state of the art meeting rooms, virtual offices and free parking. Space is let on flexible easy-in, easy-out terms and is aimed at start-ups and maturing SMEs looking to grow.
It is managed by Basepoint on behalf of Broxbourne Borough Council. By 2021, it will have delivered 300 new jobs, created 60 new businesses, assisted 170 businesses and injected £20 million into the local economy.
Broxbourne MP Charles Walker attended the opening along with Broxbourne council leader Mark Mills-Bishop and the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Dione Grimston. Mrs Grimston was full of praise for the centre and described the opening as an "historic moment".
The event was also attended by Hertfordshire LEP Board Member David Williams and ERDF Projects Facilitator Tim Burton.
Tim Burton said: "We are delighted to see this high quality enterprise centre, which provides a space for start-ups and maturing SMEs to grow, officially open. The facility has the added benefit of being able to connect businesses to support services as well as having quality accomodation. It was fantastic to see tenants in many of the offices already and we look forward to the centre supporting entrepreneurs for many years to come."
