The Hub has easy access due to the central location of the premises, and we were particularly impressed at the meeting room available for new business presentation and promotion. The helpfulness of the staff and their knowledge of helping new business start-ups and the help and guidance we have received have been and will remain invaluable to our business – Aaron Simms TechRight

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.

As the director of a social media company, I am aware of the lack of education some businesses have regarding Social Media. The Hub provides a strong platform to help give business owners the knowledge to find solutions to their marketing needs. I have delivered a few Seminars for them, and found their resources, facilities and enthusiasm to be top class. It is not just about marketing, organisations like this work hard to build many bridges to many areas of business, funding paths, networking tips and much more. Without them, small yet proud Countries like Northern Ireland would suffer larger gaps in cross-business understanding.

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.
