‘The Doughnut Factory’ - Creative Industry Workspace Open Day: Friday 16th November 2007

Action Acton is holding an open day at the site of its latest venture to help local small businesses – the Doughnut Factory. The day will include tours of the building, networking opportunites, business support seminars, 1-2-1 business advice & an early evening drinks reception.

The Doughnut Factory is a newly completed workspace aimed primarily at creative and multi-media businesses or start-ups which are based or looking to move to, West London. It will offer:

Flexible & Competitive rental arrangements for workspace
On-site business support from trained staff
Full-time management of the property
A creative and dynamic environment

There is 4000 square feet of space on 2 open plan floors on offer, with individual desks, separate office units for 2-4 staff, and a meeting room for tenants and local business people. This makes it an affordable premises solution for individuals and small companies looking to develop their business from a cottage industry to an employer with staff and workspace.

The aim of the Doughnut Factory is to establish itself as the central hub of the expanding creative cluster that already exists in Acton Vale. What makes it stand out from the crowd is the flexible rental arrangements, the invaluable add on benefits of on-site business support and the opportunity to mix and network with other creative businesses.

They will be working in partnership with Thames Valley University to extend the range of training available at the Doughnut Factory. This is the first step in tying the Doughnut Factory into the developing Creative Industry education streams that exist in West London, and to foster collaboration between small businesses and higher education in the sector.

The Doughnut Factory is based in Warple Mews (off Warple Way), Acton Vale, London W3. There is good access to transport links, including Uxbridge Road bus routes, Acton Central (Silverlink) station and Turnham Green tube station(Piccadilly & District Lines).
