About Us
IncuHive, what we do, who we are and why we want to change the way small businesses start and work!

IncuHive are business incubation co-working spaces with a twist.

IncuHive is the brainchild of Steve Northam, a prolific serial entrepreneur based in Winchester, Hampshire. IncuHive Spaces offer business incubation and co-working centres with a creative twist, providing mentoring, investment, office space, networking and a whole host more.

In partnership with Mike Worley and the Rolwey Group, Steve was able to develop the first IncuHive Space in Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire, in 2015. Steve refurbished, branded, developed and built the first IncuHive space on his own taking 6 months and 6 figures to complete! We now have a range of IncuHive Spaces rolling out around the UK (thankfully Steve isn’t doing all of these on his own!)

IncuHive Spaces are open to an unrestrained demographic, IncuHive seeks to launch the next generation of businesses across all spectrums and backgrounds. College leavers, University students and graduates or those already in the workplace looking for a change of direction; IncuHive is open to everyone.

IncuHive provides a range of services to help kick start a business into profitability, from basic one to one mentoring to complete investment acceleration programs. Alongside, the start-ups can take advantage of our in-house accounting, payroll, legal, web development and much more at affordable prices exclusive to IncuHive clients.

IncuHive is a business incubator at heart, although we provide a range of affordable offices space for rental to anyone interested. This said, our aim is not to fill rooms with clients, but to create a diverse and innovative business community. This is the real benefit from working in IncuHive; the buzz and excitement of the people around you. As is often said, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know, and we have the mix of people who will really help launch and push your business to the next level.

We look forward to welcoming you to a space near you!
