Workspace specialist Avenue HQ and retail bank Barclays have launched a new five-storey digital and tech incubator offering coworking and private offices and event spaces in Leeds. It also offers SMEs and entrepreneurs access to Eagle Lab’s initiatives and knowledge, such as funding options, mentoring and a range of events.
Helen Clarke, Barclays Area Manager in Leeds and North Yorkshire, said: “We’re really pleased to be partnering with Avenue HQ and this launch will further our investment in Yorkshire’s entrepreneurs.
“The city’s businesses are hungry for flexible workspace and we want to help local start-ups to win the ‘champions league’ of growth and job creation.
Matthew Kennedy, founder and CEO of Avenue HQ, said: “Avenue HQ has proven to deliver high-quality collaborative spaces, enabling start-ups to work alongside, and be supported by, established businesses. We are therefore delighted to secure this partnership with Barclays for our Leeds site.
“We recognise Leeds as a city with a thriving start-up scene, across all industries and sectors. Our aim, supported by Barclays, is to bring together ambitious entrepreneurs and inspiring businesses from across the city to help continue this growth, fuelling collaboration and creating more opportunities.”
