Improve your chances of business success with the BBIC
The Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre (BBIC) provides small businesses with a supportive environment that nurtures business growth. So much more than a serviced office facility, the BBIC offers expert support and assistance designed to boost the future potential of its tenant businesses.
Our mission is to stimulate, assist, promote and encourage the development of innovative technology and knowledge based businesses in order to generate new employment opportunities and create economic growth in the Barnsley area.
Many small businesses start at home where it can be difficult to make connections. The BBIC offers a step-up from this and provides a professional environment in which to invite clients as well as the opportunity to collaborate with other businesses on site. Our success is our tenant’s success, which is why we hold regular events to help share expertise and promote local businesses.
We want to help develop businesses, whether it’s a start-up or a more established business needing an extra push. We provide tailored business advice, specific for each individual business. At the BBIC, tenants build business connections with the businesses around them, both to utilise their services and to offer their own. This winning formula provides a convenient and supportive working environment to help mutual progression.
The BBIC offers sponsorship to potential high growth businesses that wish to base themselves in Barnsley. The package includes free rental of an office up to 500 sq ft, mentoring from both a sponsor and BBIC management, and potential investment from the sponsor.
The BBIC offers a range of business support to its tenants from individual coaching and mentoring, to networking, a marketing self help group, and workshops on numerous business topics. As a Platinum member of the Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, tenants can join the Chamber for a heavily discounted fee.
The BBIC has the fastest available broadband speeds in Barnsley; from Ultrafast fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) to Superfast from a leased line, we have the broadband speed that meets your business requirements.
We even have tenants on site that can deliver and maintain your chosen service.
