Developed in partnership with the College, Hillingdon Council, the London Development Agency and Heathrow City Partnership, the studios offer entrepreneurs of all ages low cost rents plus knowledge, training and guidance that is vital for any developing business.
Start-ups and businesses trading for less than a year can rent the new studios, which will provide space for up to ten new businesses who will contribute to the economic development of the local area surrounding Hayes. The studio package has been designed to meet the needs of new businesses, providing transparent costs and a range of services within the monthly rental fee, which helps young companies with financial planning.
They are already helping companies like Devine Care, a health and social care agency, providing home care services and temporary staff placements to health and social care institutions such as nursing homes. Owner Johnson Masara said: "Like many small companies, I started off running the business from home, but felt I needed a more professional environment. Since moving into Hayes Business Studios, I have had more enquiries and my business potential has definitely increased."
The studios were officially opened by Councillor Ray Puddifoot, Leader of Hillingdon Council, who said: "The Hayes Business Studios is a new and exciting resource within Hillingdon. A dedicated, modern, affordable space, which will offer support for young entrepreneurs taking the first tentative steps into the world of business".
