BizBox was born out of an identified need for extensive and cost-effective support services to be available to those seeking to start a business or those who are already trading and looking to enhance and develop their existing business.

We have a road map for the project as a whole and whilst our main focus at this stage has to be the start Ups and established businesses who are seeking support, we really want to bring the project into the 6th Form Business Studies arena and help the Entrepreneurs of tomorrow. We are working hard to introduce the programme and its many benefits to the Department of Education in the hope that they will allow students to start their journey through making their Business Studies programme exciting by allowing them to start and manage a real business rather than just an academic paper exercise.

BizBox offers its members a substantial support platform that will expand members back office and add real value to the company’s core and sustainability. To ensure that we continue to deliver quality support, we are working with several synergistic partners to create a single entity under the banner of BizBox.

BizBox focuses on the Start-Up and Small business sector because in the aftermath of the last recession, as with all such downturns, there was a rise in start-ups across the UK and that rise is already significant in its growth and the need for support is growing exponentially.

One of the key support elements that we are offering small business owners is free entry onto BizReg, the National Business Support Register which is a sister element of the BizBox offering. That register will be used to introduce our client members, their products and services, to major contract managers and procurement officers across the UK.

The FM and external contracts industry is estimated to be worth around £120b per year and is growing at a positive rate despite the latent effects of this latest financial downturn. As a former Head of Facilities and Associate Director with a career that spanned over three decades, I understand the difficulties that the profession has faced in its development thus far and the potential for its growth going forward. Over the past ten years, the FM industry alone has experienced a significant change in both process and structure. It has moved from Service Management, through knowledge management and is now entering a new and exciting phase of Wisdom management on the wave of developing technologies.

The outsource management contractors drive and focus are to meet their client’s need through a more positive and location-based service delivery that would reduce primary costs whilst ensuring that contract requirements are met. Today, this is why many major contractors look at the smaller and more local service providers to meet those needs. For my team and I, this is an opportunity for our company to help the smaller contractor and service provider to be seen and considered for contract inclusion. We know from experience that SME’s can deliver a local or regional service in support of major contracts. Today, whilst we cannot guarantee that they would win a contract, we can help them to vie for access to those contracts via The National Business Support Register (BizReg), giving them a major platform upon which to present their offering in granular details.

In addition to the register, we are introducing a new Networking platform that will remove the need for members travelling to breakfast meetings, to pay a weekly meeting fee and not having to brave the inclement British weather. The platform will be Zoom Based and meetings will be more balanced and conducted from the comfort of the members own home or office, dependent on the time they set when organising the meeting slots.
