The University of Bath is working with a number of expert partners to support the growth of social enterprise activity in the Bath area.
The Social Enterprise Innovation Programme (SEIP) offers start-up and existing social enterprises free bootcamp-style mentoring. Those with the most potential are then offered incubation support – ongoing mentoring, particularly with a view to becoming investment-ready.
A new Community Hub in the Combe Down area is to boost facilities for local businesses.
Housing association and house builder Curo is building a new £10M community hub at the heart of its flagship Mulberry Park development in Combe Down, Bath.
Alongside a primary school and children’s nursery, the hub will be home to state-of-the–art community and business facilities when it opens in September 2018. It will provide 3,000sq.ft. of workspace in two units, which could suit a single occupier, two separate suites (2,000sq.ft and 1,000sq.ft) or a workspace operator.
