Behind The Scenes

About Us

Bricks and Bread is a collaborative incubation hub that shares resources to help small business start and grow sustainably.

Bricks and Bread operates all its business activities as a social enterprise, our commercial activities of business coaching and incubation enable us to provide free activities such as our advice sessions, events and community projects.

Since it was founded in 2009, over 5,000 small business owners have had free support and access to the funding they required to start and grow their own ventures.

In 2013 Bricks and Bread became an official delivery partner of the Start Up Loan company, a government funded scheme to provide loans and a business mentor to start up ventures.

This year the founders of Bricks and Bread have launched an inspiring retreat for enterprising people in Cornwall at Newhouse Farm, a 15th Century listed farmhouse. At the retreat they offer business coaching and corporate workshops, this funds community benefits such as business incubation.

“Very inspiring. I feel more confident now to go it alone.”Michelle Stewart - attended our 'A Plan Worth Following' workshop in Birmingham 10.08.2013
