We’re delighted to partner with Avenue HQ, a new, flexible workspace which recently opened in Leeds to support the city’s growing entrepreneurial business community.
‘Avenue HQ Leeds, supported by Eagle Labs’ becomes the second partnership between Avenue HQ and Barclays, following the success of our first site in Liverpool.
The Leeds space, based in the heart of the city centre, will house over 300 businesses and provide a combination of co-working and private offices; giving businesses the space to grow and expand. Split across five floors, there are also large event spaces and several meeting rooms available to members, as well as a coffee shop and a rooftop bar, both open to the public.
Avenue HQ look forward to the benefits this partnership will bring to existing members of their Leeds site, having seen its success at their Liverpool site. With further expansion planned for Avenue HQ, with a second Liverpool site opening in April, and having won ‘Co-working Space of the Year’ at the 2018 IPSE Awards, the flexible workspace operator is going from strength-to-strength. This partnership with Barclays signifies great opportunities for the company, and its community of members.
Matthew Kennedy, founder and CEO of Avenue HQ, said: “Avenue HQ has proven to deliver high-quality collaborative spaces, enabling start-ups to work alongside, and be supported by, established businesses. We are therefore delighted to secure this partnership with Barclays for our Leeds site. Combining our flexible membership packages, workspace and events spaces with expert support, and an extensive events calendar, we will create a central hub for businesses of all sectors and sizes within Leeds and the surrounding areas. Access to a national network of Barclays Eagle Labs provides a wealth of opportunities for businesses to expand beyond the city, as well as for us to welcome businesses from other locations.
“We recognise Leeds as a city with a thriving start-up scene, across all industries and sectors. Our aim, supported by Barclays, is to bring together ambitious entrepreneurs and inspiring businesses from across the city to help continue this growth, fuelling collaboration and creating more opportunities.”
