Calling budding entrepreneurs. Have you recently started or about to start a new business? APPLY NOW below
2020 has been a challenge for just about everyone, but out of the ashes of this year that has included redundancies and business pivots, comes the hope and opportunities of 2021.
For many that may be finally turning that seedling idea into a reality and starting a new business.
Here at MyWorkSpot, we love nothing more than welcoming new start-ups and watching them flourish and grow amongst our business community, which is now close to 100 companies. That is why for 2021, we are offering free office space for a founder of a new business who inspires us with their plan to take the leap and launch a new product, service or concept here in Maidenhead. The first prize will be a dedicated desk for a year worth £2,700 and there will also be a range of runner-up prizes including hot-desk memberships and meeting room bookings to help a new business get up and running.
We know it isn’t easy and we all need a little help and support along the way. That is why as well as having your very own desk here at Clyde House Maidenhead for 2021, we have also got together with some of our MyWorkSpot members and stakeholder community to create even more support to help the new business have every chance of success.
As well as the first prize of a dedicated desk and hot desk / meeting room runner-up prizes, the overall winner of this competition will also receive the following package to help you fund, design, promote and manage your new business:
