Opening in Ipswich this winter, Dream Hatcher is offering free office space, broadband, phones, meeting rooms, mentoring and more to fledgling businesses looking to take the next step in their growth.

  • No other trading address (unless a home office)
  • Maximum of 2 Principals

  • A robust plan for future profitable growth of at least £100k p/a

Businesses can apply via the Dream Hatcher website Applications will be evaluated by a panel of partners, with finalists invited for a discussion to look in more detail at the business plan and identify how the panel of partners can support to that business. An offer letter and contract will be issued to successful applicants.

Creators, JMS Group, began in 1997 with a civil and structural engineering business, which is now national and has grown throughout 2020, despite the uncertainty. The Group has numerous subsidiary businesses and a proven track record of entrepreneurial success.

Daniel Staines, the founder of JMS Group, and the driving force behind Dream Hatcher, has brought together the panel of experienced partners to consult, mentor and support the fledgling businesses. He explains: “The current global pandemic has shown that now, more than ever, we must work together and support each other. We want to use our capital, experience and connections to do our bit for entrepreneurs with the most potential. We are excited to see what the first cohort will achieve.”
