Government office space to be made available to entrepreneurs

Posted on by Rob Powell

DAVID CAMERON has announced a new campaign to inspire entrepreneurs including an initiative to make available spare government office space.

The Prime Minister launched the ‘Business in You’ campaign yesterday in Yorkshire, and told invited business people that he wanted to offer unused government office space to start up businesses.

“It’s a very simple, very practical idea. It’s about using the spare space that we have in the public sector to help businesses to grow in the private sector.”

The ‘Business in You’ scheme is a partnership between the government and organisations such as Startup Britain, the CBI and the Federation of Small Businesses. A new website provides startup success stories and aims to put entrepreneurs in touch with business mentors.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that the government owns hundreds of offices around the country that are not being used.
