Cricketqube has been accepted to the state-of-the-art incubator space launched by PNE, the award-winning Newcastle-based business support enterprise that enables positive social and economic change by supporting businesses to start, grow and thrive in an ethical and sustainable way. The Impact Incubator, funded by the Newcastle City Council, offers Cricketqube a City Centre co-working space and a wide array of business-boosting opportunities.
The Incubator programme is a comprehensive one and would help Cricketqube to strengthen the brand and increase its customer base. The main idea behind the incubator is that it would help Cricketqube to increase our positive impact on the North East. Apart from the city centre co-working space, the company would also be allocated a dedicated business advisor, learning activities specifically designed for purpose-led start-ups and the opportunity to apply for a business development grant.
Cricketqube is noted for its mission to positively influence the community through cricket and help bridge the racial and gender divide that is apparent in our society. Alosh K Jose, Co-founder and Director, said "The Impact incubator will help Cricketqube to realise its immense potential to be a difference-maker in the North East community. Our focus on the mental and physical wellbeing of our customers through is unique in its scale and PNE would enable us to increase our footprint."
Lisa Murphy, Programme Manager for the incubator programme, explains, "The Newcastle Impact Incubator will bring together new businesses taking community and climate action under one roof and give them the support and resources to fulfil their potential!”
Participants including Cricketqube will be supported to increase their income and impact, network with business leaders and prepare to access finance among other things.
