Getting started

Maylands Business Centre is at the heart of the support available to help businesses get started within Dacorum. 

The centre provides virtual office facilities as well as offices and light industrial units to start up ventures and also to businesses looking to move into their first commercial premises.  Its aim is to help them grow and develop to a stage where they are ready to move into private commercial properties within three years. 

Expert business support and advice is on hand to assist them in achieving this whether they are based in Maylands Business Centre itself or elsewhere across Dacorum. 

Maylands Business Centre has been very successful in helping new businesses to flourish. Several have reported growth as a result of moving to the centre, one by as much as 80%, and many have now taken on their first employees. Three organisations have taken on apprentices under the Government’s apprenticeship scheme.

A community of businesses

Extensive networking opportunities and forums provide businesses with a local voice as well as up to date local market intelligence and opportunities.  The South West Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce works hand in hand with Dacorum Borough Council to ensure that local businesses can access the most effective networking opportunities and are represented on the Public Sector partnerships.

Every business, no matter how large or small, can benefit from support and advice from time to time.  If we don’t have the answers, or advice you need, we can signpost you to one of our Partnership Organisations who will be happy to help.
