New members, Partnerships, Events and Projects at HUB 109!

So, what has been happening at the HUB 109 over the last few months and why there was no new news updates?

By Sean Alimajstorovic

All we can say is that we have been busy with a number of projects as well as developing our partnerships and services. Let us tell you more about what has been happening at HUB 109.
 
New members of Hub 109
First of all, we would like to welcome some new members to Hub 109;
 
– Code Addicts, WordPress and WooCommerce UX & UI specialists for business.
– Standing Ovation, creative arts organisation that works with schools to raise self-esteem and confidence of children through the creative arts and pastoral support.
– Table Football Plus, leading provider of table football themed events, parties and team building days.
– Topadur Law Chambers, law firm which specialises in immigration matters.
 
We made sure that all our new members will be adding value and that they also understand and fit with our vision of what we are trying to achieve in Erdington and wider.
 
 
Strategic Partnerships at Hub 109
April and May were marked with a number of strategic partnerships being put into place.
 
The first of those was with Crunch, an online accountancy firm which specialises in delivery of accountancy software & services to sole traders and SME’s.
  
We have also partnered up with Invoco to offer our members competitively priced Voip telephony service. All they need to do is quote HUB 109 promo code and they will get 3 months of free service subscription.
 
 Another partnership was with Erdington Sports Centre whereby all our members will get a chance to sign up on corporate membership. They will get access to all classes, gyms and swimming pools in a number of sports centres in Birmingham and Sutton Coldfield.
 
As a small business you may need a service of virtual secretary from time to time so we have teamed up with The Office Genie to offer their services to our members. All you need to do is call 01604532018 and get started with a virtual secretary.
 
 
Networking Events at Hub 109
 
Last month we held our first networking “Coffee and Cakes” event at Hub 109. The aim of the event was to engage local businesses and find out about what kind of content they would like to see delivered through Hub 109 in Erdington. Event was supported by Natwest and we would like to extend our gratitude to Matthew Jenkins for all his help.
 
Following on from that the next event will be held on the 17th July at Hub 109 and will focus on effective bid writing & support for SME’s, Start-ups and Third sector. The aim of the workshop is to prepare you on how to write better bids and funding applications as well as provide you with more information and knowledge on funding that is available.
 
 
Website design projects
 
We have also been busy working on website delivery for Table Football Plus and Birmingham Virtual Offices. As well as that we are currently rebranding and completely overhauling front and back end of Cash4mobile.co.uk. The new website should be launching in a month’s time so watch this space.
 
 
Bid writing & support for SME’s, Start-ups and Third Sector.
 
We are proud to announce the launch of our new bid writing and support service aimed at SME’s and Third Sector. Having listened to needs and wants of local businesses we are partnering up with Paul Hanna who is coming on as head of bid development at Hub 109 and his role will be to deliver bid writing and support. Paul has over 20 years of experience in supporting and educating organisations with their bid writing and funding.
 
If you would like to bid on projects and tenders or need help with third sector funding we are more than happy to have free consultation and look at the options available in order to help your business develop, grow and succeed. 
 
So as you can see it has been a couple of busy months here at the Hub 109, we will be keeping you updated on our activities over the next few months.
