Supporting Solihull Businesses During the Pandemic

The past year has been anything but easy. But with more than two thirds of Midlands business leaders feeling ‘confident’ of growth this year, it’s clear that many entrepreneurs are using the lessons they have learned through the pandemic to forge ahead.

For Solihull businesses in particular, location is a major benefit.

It already benefits from exceptional connectivity through Birmingham Airport and motorway networks, and the arrival of HS2 will act as catalyst for transport infrastructure, creating further opportunities for growth and investment.

According to the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, as the first HS2 station outside London, Solihull and the wider Hub area “will become one of Europe’s best connected destinations for business, leisure and living”, which will position Solihull as a “major engine for growth at a national level”.

All things considered, and despite the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, it’s perhaps not surprising that so many Midlands firms are feeling optimistic about the year ahead.

The Solihull region has no shortage of innovative entrepreneurs who are continuing to adapt and rise to the current challenges.

At UBC, we are seeing regular enquiries from businesses of all sizes for our flexible office space in Birmingham Business Park, particularly from small business owners and new entrepreneurs who need flexible office space because they don’t have a suitable or quiet enough space to work at home.

With short terms, affordable all-inclusive pricing, and the ability to change upsize (or downsize) quickly and easily, workplace flexibility is becoming an essential part of every company’s growth plan going forward.

We are happy to have the opportunity to support the current needs and future growth plans of Solihull businesses, and we look forward to helping local business owners move forwards to a stronger ‘new normal’ in 2021, and beyond.
