Improve your chances of business success with the BBIC

The Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre (BBIC) provides small businesses with a supportive environment that nurtures business growth. So much more than a serviced office facility, the BBIC offers expert support and assistance designed to boost the future potential of its tenant businesses. 

Our mission is to stimulate, assist, promote and encourage the development of innovative technology and knowledge based businesses in order to generate new employment opportunities and create economic growth in the Barnsley area.

Many small businesses start at home where it can be difficult to make connections. The BBIC offers a step-up from this and provides a professional environment in which to invite clients as well as the opportunity to collaborate with other businesses on site. Our success is our tenant’s success, which is why we hold regular events to help share expertise and promote local businesses.

We want to help develop businesses, whether it’s a start-up or a more established business needing an extra push. We provide tailored business advice, specific for each individual business. At the BBIC, tenants build business connections with the businesses around them, both to utilise their services and to offer their own. This winning formula provides a convenient and supportive working environment to help mutual progression.
