E2Exchange (E2E) has teamed up with Regus UK, the UK's largest serviced office provider to create the UK's largest collection of SME business leaders.
Regus UK is the UK’s largest provider of flexible workspace solutions, with a network of 360 locations in every major town and city in the UK. The partnership with E2E represents a big step forward in fulfilling E2E's mission to enable extraordinary entrepreneurship first in the UK and then internationally.
The partnership will enable Regus UK clients access to the E2E community whilst providing E2E clients state of the art co-working environments across the country. Spaces will be opening 20+ new co-working facilities across the UK in the next 18 months, from Brighton to Edinburgh, and 100 new Spaces internationally!
E2E whose Board Directors include Duncan Bannatyne OBE, Lord Bilimoria CBE DL, Kanya King MBE, Hugh Chappell and Darryl Eales is a community of founders and leaders of scale-up businesses, established to help entrepreneurs on their growth journey. The business was founded by Shalini Khemka in 2011 and focusses on providing access to human and financial capital. Over the last six years E2E has seen over 6,000 unique entrepreneurs through its doors and connected them to capital, corporate services and like-minded individuals to promote their growth.
E2E Pioneers include Toni Mascolo OBE, Simon Woodroffe OBE, Bassim Haidar and their corporate partners include LDC, UBS, KPMG, Metro Bank, Memery Crystal and Rational FX.
"Entrepreneurs that we work with individually, through our community or at our dinners, receptions and breakfasts at the House of Lords acquire significant value to help grow their business, meet like-minded entrepreneurs, investors, corporates, mentors & non-exec directors. Until recently we have focussed on creating connectivity for London based entrepreneurs. With the current political and economic uncertainty in the UK, there is no more important time than now to support the growth of SMEs. SMEs represent the future of the UK's economic prosperity, therefore it is an obvious next step for us to partner with the globally leading serviced office provider, to go beyond the M25 and give even more opportunity for entrepreneurs to engage beyond the London circuit,” comments Shalini Khemka, Founder and CEO of E2Exchange and Member of the Mayor of London's Business Advisory Board.
Richard Morris, CEO of Spaces and Regus UK, comments: “Regus and E2Exchange are natural partners. Both organisations share the same commitment to nurturing high growth entrepreneurs and believe in the business benefits brought about through collaboration. There is no doubt that this gives our clients an incredible opportunity to access such an extensive network of business leaders.”
