Guest blog: Find work space to get your business off the ground

Smarta is delighted to be partnering with somewhereto_ on their spaced_2.0 event. The event supports young entrepreneurs in getting their ideas off the ground through offering free space to the best pitches. Bluebird Tea Co – up for Smarta’s Micro Business Award this year, benefited from free space last time around at spaced_.

Set up by young couple Krisi and Mike, Bluebird Tea Co. is the UK's first tea company specialising in Tea Mixology, creating unique and bespoke blends of loose leaf teas, fresh healthy iced teas, tea cocktails and other tea-based drinks. Their innovative approach to tea centres on their core ethos of spreading happiness, one cup at a time.

'We love to mix up unique and exciting flavours that have never been seen before to make people smile!

"We have achieved some great things in the 18months since we started and somewhereto_ have been there supporting us since the very start.

"To list a few: we have been awarded two of the highest food and drink awards in the country, met HRH Prince Charles (who loved our tea so much he took 4 bags home!), Won a local Dragon’s Den competition and grant, been named as a Smarta100 company – the 100 most innovative up and coming businesses of the year and been nominated as Micro Business of the Year 2013.

"somewhereto_ has given us so many platforms to both promote our brand as well as sell from. They have found us desk space, branding support, pop up space and workshop space. They have also provided us with invaluable opportunities to meet influential and inspiring people in business, including our peers doing similar things to us.

"It has been an absolutely fantastic journey so far and being a part of the incredibly supportive somewhereto_ network has been invaluable’
