Business lounge is first class

Have your say

Rotherham Investment and Development Office has opened a free business lounge at its Moorgate Crofts Business Centre to allow new and growing businesses to network.

It includes a professional meeting space with IT suite including high-spec computers with Adobe graphic design software, tea and coffee making facilities.

It can be booked free and is available for use by any business or start-up in the Rotherham area.

Amanda Parris, business centre manager for RiDO, said: “We responded to demand from local entrepreneurs who were looking for a professional meeting space where they can grow their businesses and work together with other like-minded people.

“This is a really exciting opportunity for businesses to meet, network and co-work and we are hoping it will become a hub for stimulating new business relationships.”

RiDO paid for the business lounge after a bid to the European Regional Development Fund. RIDO’s Soft Landing Zone is focused on exports.
