Are you looking for business property advice? Depending on the type of business you are will determine what kind of premises you need. If you need an office space and are just starting out, then you may want to investigate co-working spaces and other flexible options.

York St John Enterprise Centre
The York St John Enterprise Centre is a vital office space and support hub for startups, creative and digital businesses, and social enterprises, created by York St John University in partnership with York & North Yorkshire Growth Hub.
Since opening in May 2022, the Enterprise Centre has welcomed numerous businesses and entrepreneurs who have really benefited from a professional, collaborative workspace, as well as direct access to a range of support available on-site. This includes coaching and mentoring workshops from York Business School, support with digital and marketing, growth planning, finance skills and bid writing, and a package of free expert help, uniquely connected to the business support landscape via the Growth Hub.
Casey Woodward, founder of AgriSound said:
“Working with Emma from the Growth Hub has been absolutely great for our business. She has been able to open up a whole range of funding options that we have gone on to secure and signpost us to the wider support services within the university, including access to students and graduates to complete specific projects. Additionally, she has introduced us to other businesses within the local York ecosystem that have become clients of ours. So all-in-all, it’s been a fantastic experience.”
