A new service in Watford opens this month after the recent go-ahead was given to expand the support available to the region‘s start-up businesses. Wenta have teamed up Watford Borough


Council to develop a ‗My Incubator‘ centre at Wenta‘s business centre on Colne Way which will provide fully equipped ‗hot-desking‘ facilities with virtual office support for up to 16 start-ups. This new service will offer a full range of


support for pre-start, new or early stage businesses and social enterprises that require workspace and facilities (including access to a hot desk, broadband and telephony), with an advisor on hand to ‗mentor‘ clients through the early stages of start up. Clients will also have access to bespoke business planning, project fundraising advice and a variety of in-house events, seminars and training. My Incubator is free of charge* for 3 months for those at pre-start stage and aims to support entrepreneurs and create successful businesses. The council will fund £55,275 of the capital


costs, with EEDA contributing the other £55,275. Wenta have committed to running and funding the revenue costs for the unit.

Stevenage and says, ―Since working within My Incubator I have been able to network with a variety other start-ups in a very professional environment. All of the business connections I have made during my time in My Incubator have been invaluable and a massive asset to my business‖. Chris Pichon, Wenta‘s Chief Executive, said:


―My Incubator provides a much needed beacon of light for start ups who are working hard to make their venture a success but need expert, ongoing, guidance on the best way forward. These funds will transform the prospects for start-up businesses in Hertfordshire and create true centres for enterprise rather than just managed workspaces.‖ For more information call 0845
