Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that empty Government office space will be made available to start-up businesses as part of a Government campaign to help people to start their own businesses.
The Prime Minister said in the Business Desk: “If you ask people starting a business they will say they need to get hold of some money, that’s about the banks, they need a great idea, that’s about inspiration, they will say they need advice and we need to make sure they get that.
“But they will also say they need space. It’s often very difficult as a start up business to find some space and rent some space. People might ask you to commit for months and years when you don’t know if its going to work out.
“We are saying the Government should open up its offices, we have plenty of spare office space, and actually say you can have floors where we will supply desks and telephones and basic equipment and if you have a great idea and you want to rent that space cheaply, you can have incubators if you like for new businesses in Government offices. It’s a small idea but the kind of idea that can help create jobs of the future.”
