Supporting local SME’s in Birmingham

Sean director at Hub 109

By Sean Alimajstorovic

As we are slowly establishing ourselves in our first year and getting to know Erdington we have been also doing a lot of talking with local businesses and stakeholders and have been introducing new services and products.


As you are may be aware, we are primarily known as a co-working space where local businesses, start ups and entrepreneurs can come and base their business from. We also offer additional services such as bid & tender support, marketing, website design and IT solutions.


Recently in the news we have heard a lot about so called decline of High streets up and down the country. In the last year alone according to some sources there have been more than 75000 job losses on the high streets with several big chains going out of business.

However, no one seems to be mentioning the positive trend of independents moving in and growth of small start ups. The High street is going through a transition and like everything there are a number of factors driving the change.


Having spoken and listened to a lot of local businesses we have been also offering support, advice and guidance to a lot of them and have decided to introduce the following services for local SME’s and start ups;


  • Free business consultation – email us or give us a call to arrange for an informal chat on the issues around your business and we may be able to provide you with strategical advice and guidance going forward.
  • Help with business rates reduction – we will be happy to look at your business rates bill, property valuation and advise you on how it can be reduced. Please be aware that this is a slow process but eventually it can end up saving you thousands.
  • Digital transformation – better IT system, website, marketing or even a process change can save you hours and make your business visible to new customers and markets. Come in and talk to us on how we can help you digitally transform your business and increase exposure as well as customer base. The initial costs associated with these types of project can be recouped through hours saved, customer gains and increased turnover within first 6 months.


Hub 109 is located at 109 High Street, Erdington B23 6SA, our email is and our telephone number is 0121 405 4405. Please get in touch to find out what we can do for you.
