Peterborough Business Support


Er…take the hesitation out of your business venture.

Business support at Allia Future Business Centre Peterborough is run through Serious Impact. We can help you turn your tentative steps into a steady strut.

The clue is in the name – we’re serious about supporting businesses to make an impact as well as a profit. We’ve worked with more entrepreneurs than you’ve had chai lattes so whether you are exploring an early concept or want to grow your organisation from 2 to 200, we can help. Our team will take you from back of beer mat to market and our free bowls of fruit at the Hatchery, well, er…they’ll provide a valuable source of Vitamin C.

You’ve got a brilliant idea that you believe will make an impact but don’t know how to turn it into a business. Or you’ve got the business model to create impact and profit but you need help to launch it. Or you’ve already got a company that’s delivering both impact and profit but you’re now looking to scale. Or…
