A Year at Hull’s Newest Start-up Incubator Space

  • Author: Alistair O'Sullivan

Well… we made it!

Today is our first birthday at Onesixone Hightstreet – Hull’s newest and most successful business start-up incubator space established for young entrepreneurs between ages 18-30 and their start-up business. As they say with every start-up, the first year can be most definitely the toughest, as well as Hull’s stupidly low survival rate of young businesses, not to mention the other 948934858 creative agencies in Hull that all claim to be ‘unique’ and ‘innovative’… ok i’m going to shut up now.

But basically Onesixone and the team have helped us develop and progress as a business through thick and thin, whether it be through their advice and moral support, the low rent and networking opportunities, financial and legal advice, or even just having spare teabags when supplies are drastically low.

The space provides opportunities like no other, low rent, awesome advice and support, co-working spaces, high speed internet, fantastic networking opportunities, and being able to work and progress alongside 25 other Hull start-up companies. What more could you ask for as a young business? – Well, a couple of hundred grand wouldn’t go a miss but that’s just being unrealistic.

In 10 months of trading we’ve been able to turn a couple of students with a business idea, into fully fledged, healthy start-up with a global portfolio, a team of 5 creative and strategic marketing professionals, based in a state of the art design studio with the best equipment and software on the market. We really wouldn’t have got this far without the support from our friends at Onesixone, so yeah.. we owe you all a drink or two!

If you have a business idea, or have an early stage business start up and are between the ages of 18-30, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team at www.onesixonehull.co.uk,  it really is worth doing!
