Hot desk space summer sale for Discovery Park Start Up Zone

Discovery Park is putting on its own summer sale through August with discounts for businesses looking to take their first step to success with space in the Start Up Zone.

From 1 to 31 August the UK’s leading science and technology park will be reducing the cost of a hot desk from £150+VAT to £99+VAT, a saving of more than £600+VAT a year.

The Start Up Zone is a spring board for entrepreneurs looking to launch the next big thing, giving them access to potential customers, as well as the world-class facilities available.

Creative and design business, Howell and Hicks, is one of the companies to have thrived on site since winning a six month free hot desk at last year’s Kent 2020 Start Up event.  They recently signed up for a further year.

Director, Jen Howell, said: “Our business card was picked out from hundreds, possibly thousands, so it really was just being at the right place at the right time – a big dose of luck which every Start up business needs.

“The Start Up Zone gives us the flexibility our deadline driven business needs, offering fledgling businesses an invaluable foot on the Discovery Park ladder. It’s a great place to meet new business contacts and make new friends.

“Discovery Park is already a huge success story and with new tenants arriving weekly, it’s getting better all the time. The place somehow manages to be big and friendly at the same time.

“I’ve been amazed by the community spirit and opportunities to network. Everyone seems genuinely keen to support each other. Being on-site definitely opens up opportunities to work for, and collaborate with successful businesses of all shapes and sizes.”

Discovery Park will support another business with a hot desk giveaway at this year’s Kent Start-up 2020, being held on Tuesday 20 October at Kent Event Centre at the County Showground, Detling.  Once again the business selected in the draw will win the free use of a hot desk for a six month period.
