Elland based ABS UK Ltd is set to launch a new business incubator service to a start-up company offering free desk space and expert business mentoring.

Eligible new businesses up to two years old, and operating in the Halifax and Huddersfield area, are invited to apply for the free desk space for a period of one year based in ABS UK Ltd’s company offices.

The package for one local business person will include free use of wifi, telephone line, meeting space and warehouse space, as well as access to experts within sales, administration and marketing.

The initial online application process, which opens on February 1, will consist of a simple questionnaire; applicants will then be invited to present their business plan in a face-to-face Dragons’ Den style interview to the ABS business incubator panel, before a decision is reached.

The scheme has been designed by ABS with advice from Calderdale Council Enterprise Support in order to nurture and encourage growth within community.

Paul Lees, managing director of ABS UK Ltd, said: “Having been through the process of setting up and growing a successful business, we understand the challenges that businesses can face. We would now like to take the opportunity to give back to the local business community and offer our own expertise and advice to the next generation of business owners.”
