THE LITTLE BUSINESS COMPANY is located in the town’s Market Square and is the first venue of its kind in the region to provide a mix of co-working desks with popup shop & business meeting space alongside a barista & deli counter. The idea for THE LITTLE BUSINESS COMPANY came from the county’s Enterprise Partnership having spent the past decade launching business hubs and now making the move to connect the hubs to ‘high street revival’ regeneration efforts, providing town based services and bringing entrepreneurs into town centres.
With the backing of Wellington Town Council, a bid was submitted to the Telford & Wrekin High Street Fund for part funding of the town centre venue.
The project has been supported by the Cooperative Bank who have provided the premises to create space for businesses to sell & network as well as promote their local goods and services, co work on a daily basis and attend inspirational events and retail promotions.
THE LITTLE BUSINESS COMPANY promises to be a powerful new addition to the ‘high street’ offer and one which will draw increased footfall and local spend, breathing much-needed new life into the town centre by bringing an empty building back into use and providing a productive work and meeting place for the business community as well as a host of PopUp events for local people of all ages to enjoy.
£50 per calendar month or £5 per person x 2 hour meetup (including coffee/biscuits)
The benefits of co working for entrepreneurs who are home based, freelancers on the move or employees away from the office - are numerous.
The mix of co workers always produces entrepreneurial energy and meeting people from other business sectors just never has a downside.
Working with a bustle of other energy around is proven to make co workers more productive and with subsidised fees at this co working business lounge, the benefits are all 'plus'.
