A new High Street chain called The Business Café has started a crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube.
Co-founders Penny Power OBE and Gail Thomas plan to launch the first premises in Peterborough, Gail’s hometown, after completing the first investment round.
It will then set out on a nationwide rollout with a network of cafés across the country that require a free membership to enter a private lounge-style environment. Described as a ‘Starbucks which gets down to business’, the aim of The Business Café is to create a fertile environment for small business owners.
Highly trained staff known as ‘Digital Friends’ will be on hand to answer questions relating to digital skills and offer free training in business applications, such as book keeping, CRM, and digital marketing.
