Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID) is moving into Scale Space, the new hub for innovative growth businesses which has opened in the city this week.
Nottingham BID’s 14-strong operational team will now be based at Scale Space on Wollaton Street, which has been chosen as the second UK location for a new model in scale-up knowledge destinations which launched last year in London.
It offers a combination of flexible workspace over four floors in the heart of Nottingham and access to a portfolio of business know-how and knowledge-based support services.
Nottingham BID Manager Lucy Stanford said: “We are about to start a new five-year term in the city, and it’s important for us to be right at the heart of the places, people and organisations we’re here to support and work alongside.
“Scale Space’s decision to choose Nottingham as its second UK location is a real vote of confidence in Nottingham itself, and we’re delighted to be in an environment which is helping to develop the next generation of business success stories here.”
Mark Sanders, CEO of Scale Space, said: “We think Nottingham BID is a perfect fit for Scale Space. Like us, it’s dedicated to helping the city grow and the role it will play in promoting progress as the city recovers from the pandemic is extremely important.
“We also have a pipeline of prospective members waiting to join us here, which is a really positive sign about the ambitions businesses have to get back to growth and the status of Nottingham as a national centre for digitally-driven scale-ups.”
