Bring your business to Bond Terrace!

Leeds Beckett University’s Business Centre – Wakefield have a different approach when it comes to providing a home for businesses.  With most businesses failing in the first two years, the University recognise that having the right levels of support can make a significant difference to the growth of a business.  In addition to office space, the Centre provides training, mentoring, legal and accountancy clinics.

Tech company Binary Forge moved into the Centre in April 2019.  The company design and develop large scale Internet of Things systems.  Their solutions are currently deployed throughout the UK, Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand.

Company Director Glenn Pugh says, ‘The location at Bond Terrace is fantastic, with really easy access to the train station and the motorway.  We really liked the office space and the feel of the building and as an IT company we needed fast reliable Internet connectivity, which the centre could provide.  We have also taken advantage of the free mentoring that has been on offer.  Our team is very technology focused and managing our own accounts and finances is a new experience for us, so we really appreciate the support’.

Binary Forge also won a Business Advantage Award shortly after moving into the Centre, an award offering £5,000 of legal and mentoring support from University Business Centres Corporate Partners Lupton Fawcett Solicitors as well as £1,000 accountancy and tax advice from WGN and 3 years free banking with Yorkshire Bank. 

Fran Parkinson, Operations Manager for the University Business Centres says ‘We have seen first hand the difference having the right support can make to businesses.  The support we provide plays a significant part in the growth of the businesses based with us’.
