New social network group set to help start-up businesses

A brand new social network group has been set up to offer support to new businesses. The brains behind this venture are Bizspace and Andrew Porter Ltd., the business relocation experts. The group is called Start-up Support for New Businesses and can be found on LinkedIn.com.

The 2 companies embarked on their strategic partnership only last month, and have committed themselves to both supporting new businesses and helping them along the road of success in the current tough economic clime. Both companies are offering a discount on their services to businesses that have just started up, enabling them to get both professional premises as fit-outs at greatly reduced rates.

“We already have a section on our website which offers guidance on the products and services which a new company may need, but our LinkedIn group takes this to the next level, allowing new business owners to ask questions, share advice and compare information,” Bizspace’s sales and marketing director, Emma Long said, “ and we hope it will really benefit people in the early stages of their business.”

John Best, national accounts manager at Andrew Porter Limited continued: “We wanted to take our support a step further and seeing as social networking is at the forefront of so much business communication these days, we thought LinkedIn would be an excellent platform to do this. There can be so much to think about when starting a new business and we thought it would be helpful to give people an easy-to-access forum to seek advice.”

Bizspace, the largest national provider of flexible workspace in the UK, announced its partnership with Andrew Porter Limited, the UK’s leading independent business relocation provider, in June. The collaboration comes after Bizspace signed up to be part of Lord Young’s small business StartUp Kit for 18-25-year-olds.

The company is also supporting Ingenious Britain – a community of businesses dedicated to helping SMEs become successful.  The platform is also backed by the Prime Minister David Cameron, Business Secretary Vince Cable, Sir James Dyson, Mary Portas and Lord Sugar.
