Bathtub 2 Boardroom is a charity that helps first-time entrepreneurs turn business ideas into reality. It does this by providing a nurturing home in empty commercial space for fledgling businesses during the early start-up stage.
Bathtub 2 Boardroom seeks to provide the vital infrastructure that many first-time entrepreneurs lack: affordable office space; a vibrant community; and hands-on support, advice and mentoring from experienced experts. Bathtub 2 Boardroom is driven by the belief that more people from all backgrounds should be encouraged to start businesses, that entrepreneurs catalyse economic growth and job creation, and that access to entrepreneurial resources and communities should be democratised.
Bathtub 2 Boardroom has helped over 60 different enterprises to take their early steps, and between them these have gone on to generate more than 140 paid jobs and raise over £1.5 million in seed funding.
