Looking to expand? These cities will give you bang for your buck
A city really blazing a trail on the world’s start-up scene is Bristol. So much so that research recently published by marketing agency Yours Sincerely found it to be the best place to start a business in the UK.
Nestled in the South West of England, its transport links provide it with easy access to Wales as well as London and the South East.
With desk space ranking 56% cheaper than London on average, the report also cited internet connection speeds, commuting times and the number of start-ups already flourishing there as reasons for its top billing. Regus currently has five centres in the city, with three more in neighbouring areas.
In January last year, O’Neill & Brennan decided to relocate its Cheltenham office to set up a new facility with Regus in Bristol. Will Keenan from O’Neill & Brennan, hailed Bristol as a “vibrant city”.
“The flexibility that comes with working with Regus has been instrumental to our growth,” he added. “So much so that we have opened an additional office in Regus Cardiff and are in the process of opening a new office in one of its Exeter locations.”
“Since relocating to Bristol, we have seen year-on-year growth with a turnover of £2m in year one, and with our new locations primed for new business opportunities this is predicted to double to £4m this year.”
China’s economic boom in recent decades has been no secret, with Shanghai perfectly placed for any company looking to get involved in the Chinese success story.
