Local Business Support Facilities

There are a number of business support facilities throughout the district that provide flexible office space for businesses of all sizes.

Venture House

Start-ups and small businesses can take advantage of a newly-transformed business centre known as Venture House, which is located on Avenue Farm Industrial Estate just off the Birmingham Road in Stratford-upon-Avon.

The centre, which opened its doors in April 2016, is owned and managed by Stratford-on-Avon District Council. It has been supported and funded by Warwickshire County Council and enabled as part of a Growth Deal with central Government. It has been designed to provide the best possible base for new businesses starting up, small businesses wishing to grow and businesses making the transition from a home-based environment into commercial premises. The transformed building provides hot-desking and flexible working space, which is ideal for small and micro businesses.

Minerva Mill Innovation Centre

Minerva Mill Innovation Centre is a business centre providing high quality office space and light industrial units to let. It is a vibrant community, with local, national and international companies making Minerva Mill the base for their business.

Just a few minutes' walk from the centre of Alcester, Minerva Mill is in the heart of the business community with access to all the services offered by a market town. It provides high-quality serviced offices to let, along with flexible office solutions such as shared office space, hot desks, and virtual office services.

Mansley Business Centre

The Mansley Business Centre provides an alternative for companies looking for a flexible, low-cost alternative to a traditional office lease. Based on the Stratford-upon-Avon Enterprise Park (Timothy's Bridge Road), it has a range of offices with short term leases from just one month available. For start-ups needing a professional working environment but looking to minimise initial costs, the centre's professional team will take away the burden of day-to-day office management, leaving you to concentrate on running your business.

Alscot Park

Based in Atherstone Hill, south of Stratford-upon-Avon, Alscot is a unique business hub offering the perfect balance between the benefits of a stunning setting and an efficient modern office environment. With IT and telephony systems allowing business users to access the fastest broadband speeds in the area, the offices are perfect for both start-up businesses and companies looking to relocate to an established commercial hub.

Alscot Park offers hot-desking, meeting rooms, business conferencing and virtual offices as well as commercial properties to rent.
