Kate Green, Parliamentary Candidate and previously MP for Stretford and Urmston, cut the ribbon launching Old Trafford’s newest business incubator – Citibase Manchester Old Trafford – on Friday at an open day for small businesses looking to grow
Entrepreneurs, startups and SMEs from across the area were welcomed to Citibase Manchester Old Trafford on Friday as Citibase officially unveiled its brand new fully serviced office space.
Special guest Kate Green, the former MP for Stretford and Urmston who is standing for the seat again at the forthcoming General Election, gave the business centre her vote of approval by officiating at the ribbon cutting ceremony to declare the centre well and truly open.
Located between Old Trafford’s famous football and cricket grounds in the landmark Oakland House, the Citibase team gave Kate and the many local businesses who attended guided tours to explore the large selection of refurbished and flexible fully serviced work space on offer.
A wide variety of spaces are available to move in straight away on flexible contract terms, all fully furnished, from as little as one person offices upwards. Services include Citibase’s unique Concierge reception and administrative services, superfast internet and telecoms packages, meeting rooms, personalised call answering, 24/7 access, parking* for cars and bike and even an on-site café.
Citibase Manchester Old Trafford Centre Manager Neil Hunter said: “We were delighted to host Kate Green and so many members of the local business community at our open day. With space filling up fast we’re looking forward to providing up to 360 entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs with an affordable and flexible place for them to call home and giving a welcome boost to the local economy. The feedback we’ve had from the customers who have already moved has been fantastic. They tell us how much they appreciate us taking away all the hassle of running their office space so that they can get on with what’s really important – running and growing their businesses.”
With Salford Quays and MediaCityUK nearby and fantastic transport links into the city centre just five minutes away, it offers customers an incredibly convenient location to operate their businesses from and joins Citibase’s existing centre in the heart of the city on Princess Street.
