Go Business Open Resources for Local Business

Coworking & Office Spaces, Events, Advice, Funding & Resources

Championing & supporting local businesses

For hosting and corporate hospitality at Cranbrook & Flimwell Park. If the nature of your business means you meet clients on an ad hoc basis, but perhaps not frequently enough to justify renting your own office space, then look no further. For casual one-to-ones, you can meet up in the Buzz Lounges, or for more privacy, simply hire the sound-proof Buzz Booths for as long as required. For larger meetings, workshops and presentations, you can pre-book our Meeting Zones, complete with digital screen and Fire Stick for mobile-to-screen live-streaming, an eight-seater conference table, and a private sideboard for serving food and refreshments.
