About Interspace

Facilitating Business Growth & Collaboration throughout Edinburgh

Interspace aims to help make Edinburgh the leading provider of services and facilities for small businesses and start-ups. Bringing together a network of small businesses throughout Edinburgh we wish to help accelerate their growth.

We understand that many small businesses produce fantastic and innovative products and provide market leading services. We appreciate that such talent and creativity needs nurturing. In recent years Edinburgh has been moving ahead of other UK cities in sustaining and successfully developing small businesses due to a city-wide network of support and a maxim of collaboration-in-business throughout.

Interpsace is affiliated with the City of Edinburgh Council. We provide a network of ever growing start-up office venues and facilities throughout the city. Interspace offers the doorway to everything a start-up or small business needs to grow, collaborate and succeed.

Running the Project

The team behind the Interspace initiative is led by four key members with extensive business experience and networking skills. Together they are helping promote business networking, collaboration and business growth in Edinburgh.
