18 sites have been identified for use in England, of which Crosskill House in Beverley is one.
The Government is now inviting business start-up organisations, which help new and existing companies to manage and allocate these spaces. These organisations will also provide businesses moving into the space with valuable support and advice.
Those who would like to look at managing the space should register their interest at www.contractsfinder.businesslink.gov.uk. The process will be open until 29 June 2012.
Graham said “The Government is right to support new enterprises. Small businesses are key to bringing about economic growth.
“Entrepreneurs often struggle to find flexible and affordable space to start their business – so this is a practical measure which the Government is taking to support the next generation of businesses.”
