Based in the heart of Erdington High Street, HUB 109 is all about providing benefit to business start ups. Our mission is to help and support entrepreneurs or intending entrepreneurs, freelancers, sole traders and recent graduates starting in business. We provide assistance to all those who are contributing to a making good economy, those who are seeking social, environmental as well as financial impact and to those who are working in a range of industries across the green economy, social enterprise, arts, social finances and creative ventures.
We provide start ups and businesses with an affordable and supportive incubator environment, compromising amongst other things affordable entry to workspace, meeting room, consultancy services, resources, and events that support the enterprises of the community and the community members themselves.
Through learning and education we aim to build bridges overcoming the barriers to socially focused enterprise and entrepreneurship and become a platform for purpose driven activity by delivering a combination of hosting services to connect subscribers for purposes of sharing knowledge and information, providing lectures, workshops, programmes and access to business support resources, learning resources, incubators, and accelerator programmes, scholarships and consultancy to complement the needs of the community.
We work to promote, advocate and strategically position the needs & value of enterprises in the social and ethical sectors and sectors as a whole.
Ultimately, we hope that our activities will not just benefit start ups, create jobs and opportunities for Birmingham residents but also impact the wider community by creating wider benefits such as education, training and knowledge base.
Our space has been recently refurbished and it is conveniently based on the High Street. We are located approximately 4 miles to the north of Birmingham City Centre and 3 miles to the south of Sutton Coldfield town centre. The area has very strong road communication links with access to Junction 6 of the M6 motorway (being 2 miles to the south) and the main A38 (M) giving direct vehicular access to Birmingham City Centre. Public transport links to and from Erdington are extremely good with regular bus services to both Birmingham City Centre and Sutton Coldfield and a direct train service from Erdington to Birmingham New Street.
