Serviced offices firm Avanta partners with Entrepreneur Country to offer reduced rates to entrepreneurs
Substantial discounts on serviced office space across the UK are being offered under a new partnership between leading serviced office provider Avanta and Entrepreneur Country, to proactively help entrepreneurs and SMEs ride out the recession.
In an effort to reduce business start-up costs for entrepreneurs, a 20 per cent discount on Avanta serviced office space and on-demand meeting rooms is available to members of Entrepreneur Country, the networking community for entrepreneurs set up by Ariadne Capital. The cost-savings, combined with the quality and range of essential office services provided by Avanta, will contribute to the growth of small businesses, which in turn will help drive the economic recovery.
Avanta managing director David Alberto, who spoke alongside Sir Peter Vardy at the Entrepreneur Country Forum in June, says: “Avanta is wholeheartedly committed to supporting entrepreneurs, SMEs and business start-ups and so partnering with Entrepreneur Country is a great way to help boost their ambitions and kickstart the economy.”
“We have formed a partnership with Avanta Managed Offices because it actively supports Entrepreneur Country’s call for the cost of entry to entrepreneurship to be lowered,” comments Ariadne Capital CEO, Julie Meyer, who previously set up the successful ‘First Tuesday’ networking forum. “Discounted office space is a major benefit right now because, as a result of the credit crunch, even the best enterprises are finding it difficult to get finance and are therefore self-funding. As a result, they need to control their financial burn until the wheels of the financial services industry turn again.
“We recently relocated to Avanta’s Devonshire Square business centre in the City of London and approached Avanta to partner Entrepreneur Country based, not only on the cost-effectiveness of its occupancy proposition, but also on our experiences of the quality and range of services that it provides to help accelerate the ambition of the entrepreneur. Avanta understands that this is our home office and it must be professionally run 24/7 and so managing director, David Alberto, has made a commitment to Entrepreneur Country and the high-growth SMEs in the community.”
