Initiative launched to help start-ups find office space

StartUp Spaces matches empty office space from start-up hubs and office providers with small businesses looking to expand or co-work with other start-ups. Businesses with extra space can upload their offer to StartUp Britain's website and those looking for an office can search a map to find a match.

The initiative was created in response to a recently-published report from Lord Young, the Enterprise Advisor to the Prime Minister, which concluded that opening more spaces to start-ups is essential to ensure they have the best conditions to grow.

"We know that over 60% of businesses are started from home," says Emma Jones, co-founder of StartUp Britain. "But a number of businesses outgrow the home and an even greater number look for out of home office space in which to conduct client meetings or attend co-working sessions to feel the buzz of working alongside like minds."

StartUp Britain hopes to sign up over a thousand businesses from across the UK within the next six months and expects unused government spaces to be posted by Christmas.

StartUp Britain is a campaign founded by eight business owners and launched by David Cameron last year to inspire, accelerate and celebrate entrepreneurship.
