The Business Village @BarnsleyBIC provides small businesses with a supportive environment that nurtures business growth. So much more than a serviced office facility, the BarnsleyBIC offers expert support and assistance designed to boost the future potential of its tenant businesses.
Our knowledge and experience has been invaluable to over 400 businesses since 1987. Our mission is to stimulate, assist, promote and encourage the development of innovative technology and knowledge based businesses in order to generate new employment opportunities and create economic growth in the Barnsley area. We pride ourselves on offering the best office accommodation in Barnsley and 100% of the tenants surveyed said they would rent at the BarnsleyBIC again.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) quotes the five year survival rate of Barnsley companies at 40.6% currently. The BarnsleyBIC is looking to help change this figure. Nearly half of the BarnsleyBIC's tenants have been trading on the site for more than five years and another 50 companies remained here for more than five years before moving to a larger premises elsewhere. Many small businesses start at home where it can be difficult to make connections.
The BarnsleyBIC offers a step-up from this and provides a professional environment in which to invite clients as well as the opportunity to collaborate with other businesses on site. Our success is our tenant's success, which is why we hold regular events to help share expertise and promote local businesses. We want to help develop businesses, whether it's a start-up or a more established business needing an extra push. We provide tailored business advice, specific for each individual business.
At the BarnsleyBIC, tenants build business connections with the businesses around them, both to utilise their services and to offer their own. This winning formula provides a convenient and supportive working environment to help mutual progression.
