Sponsoring the FSB Manchester awards

We're delighted to be sponsoring the micro business category in the Federation of Small Businesses Greater Manchester and North Cheshire Business Awards

We are delighted to announce that we are sponsoring the Micro Business of the Year category in the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Greater Manchester and North Cheshire Business Awards 2016. 

The event celebrates the outstanding work of businesses from a variety of sectors, as well as inspirational individuals, from throughout the region and fits in perfectly with our commitment to support, inspire and nurture start-ups and micro businesses.

Our Sales and Marketing Director, Emma Long will be part of a panel of awards judges, and will present the winner of the Micro Business of the Year category with their award at a ceremony on 9 November 2016 at the Hilton in Manchester.  More than 300 entrepreneurs and small business owners from the region will attend the event.

This will be the second award ceremony in the North West region that we have sponsored this year, after lending our support to the Red Rose Awards in Lancashire in March, which we sponsored for the fourth year running.

Entries now open

The call for entries for the FSB Greater Manchester and North Cheshire Business Awards began last week for more than 20 categories and the closing date is 9 September 2016.

Our Sales and Marketing Director, Emma Long, comments: “We work day in, day out with businesses of all sizes, but predominantly our focus is on supporting start-ups, micro businesses and small companies who may be moving into their first professional workspace.

“We understand the unique needs of this type of business and we’ve developed an eye for what makes a business idea a successful one.  I’m very proud to be a judge in the Micro Business of the Year category and am looking forward to seeing entries from some of the region’s best companies with 10 employees or fewer.

“I’d encourage anyone to enter and wow us with your business’ story.”

Variety of workspace

We have numerous business centres throughout the Greater Manchester and North Cheshire area, providing a range of workspaces and products tailored to start-ups and micro-businesses. These include small units, offices, co-working space, meeting rooms for hire, mailboxes and virtual offices. There are also opportunities for businesses to grow and expand with our flexible licence agreements and variety of workspace on offer.

Emma continues: “At Bizspace we like to do what we can to support local causes and events, and these awards are a perfect fit for us. Many of our customers are FSB members and we’re proud to partner with an organisation which, like us, has the interests of small companies at heart.”
