Supporters Information

Introduction

Bizz Inn is providing support for new and recent start-up businesses to develop and grow. We offer a six month rent-free period during which a business can get established. We have used money from the Higher Education Innovation Fund provided to the University of Birmingham by Government to fit-out a floor within Birmingham Research Park and provide a core support staff.

Our aim is to build up a group of supporters from external organisations and individuals who are passionate about growing local businesses. You will be able to complement the services provided by our own staff to assist our start-ups. You may already have a relationship with the University of Birmingham, Alta Innovations or Birmingham Research Park, or you may wish to develop one; alternatively, you may just wish to support local businesses.
