The City Business Hub helps businesses validate their ideas and identify additional opportunities, has fantastic facilities and best of all, it’s all FREE.  Where else in Belfast can you book a room that will allow you to be surrounded by some of the biggest companies in NI at no charge at all?  The staff have been helpful on multiple occasions and we are considering further ways that we can work with the City Business Hub in the future to provide mentoring and training for Businesses in Central Belfast.

As a comic artist who works from home, I’m often looking for ways to escape my home studio! Having a free hot desk and occasionally much larger workspace available has been an absolute boon, especially giving the location in the heart of Belfast. The staff have done everything in their power to make me feel welcome. I just wish I could get up there more often!PJ Holden. Comic Artist  (for 2000AD Drawing Judge Dredd)

The help I gained from the City Business Hub was enormous, especially with regard to how social media could help my business. On subsequent visits to the City Business Hub, the staff there could not have been more helpful. They pointed me in the direction of trip advisor and it has worked well for the business, it is forever moving up the rankings with the reviews I have been receiving from customers and the general public.

Testimonial by Dennis Hughes

I recently attended the City Business Hub as part of an information day for new local food businesses. As a start-up social enterprise, I felt the set-up was fantastic and found the event to be extremely worthwhile. There was a great range of exhibitors, all of whom were very knowledgeable & provided me with excellent advice. Furthermore, the team involved in running the event were welcoming & very helpful from the moment I walked through the door. Their care & attention was even continued after the event providing me with the opportunity to network & develop links with other support bodies relative to my business model & field. Entering business alone can be a daunting task, however knowing there is a great support network nearby is very reassuring & I definitely plan on attending relevant future events at the City Business Hub.
