Hertfordshire LEP invested in the Ambition Broxbourne Business Centre, opened December 2016, which provides high quality office space let on flexible terms to facilitate SME growth. The centre houses 68 office and studio units ranging from 150 to 500 sq. ft., state-of-the-art meeting rooms, virtual offices and free parking.
The business centre provides much-needed office space to support the growth of SMEs, contributing to the LEP's goal of accelerating business-led growth within the county. We look to remove barriers to help the substantial number of micro and small businesses in Hertfordshire grow to medium size and beyond, to become the principal wealth generators in our economy. Business centres like this one help SMEs prepare for growth on flexible terms.
By 2021, the business centre will have facilitated the delivery of 300 new jobs and the creation of 60 new businesses, have assisted 170 businesses through training sessions/events, and injected £20m into the local economy.
The LEP provided £1.8m of Growth Deal funding for the project. The centre is a multi-partnership initiative with Basepoint Business Centres and Broxbourne Borough Council.
The business centre is home to over 40 businesses, spanning a broad range of industries including property service, finance, business consultancy, kitchen design and installation, construction and beauty training. 138 new jobs have been created as of March 2018. Current tenants include:
