A company offering a unique service to start-ups and entrepreneurs is to expand – targeting local businesses and new firms incorporating in Bermuda.
With arrival of Jeremy Deacon, who runs PR and media relations firm Deep Blue Communications, it means the shared office space available at nineteen, on Queen Street, is full.
Now owner Tim Miller is to expand the community office concept, partnering with technology and business consulting company Independent Consulting Solutions Limited to offer an additional 600 square feet of fully-furnished, shared office space on Bermudiana Road.
“In particular, the objective of nineteen is to help grow Bermuda’s offshore presence by providing a one-stop shop for overseas companies looking to incorporate in Bermuda, utilizing the cost effective office solution that we provide,” says Mr. Miller. “Very quickly, new businesses can be up-and-running with a professional, fully-managed office offering everything a fledgling company will need.
“I want to be able to say to a start-up insurance or reinsure company ‘look, we have access to a corporate lawyer, a leading technology company, a printing specialist, custom risk management software solutions and a PR company’, who compliment each other’s services and are all available within the same community within these serviced offices,” added Mr Miller.
Mr Miller, who also runs nCompass technologies—a Lanier photocopier distributor, asserts that one of the aims of nineteen is to provide the companies that use its office space with networking and new business opportunities. “There is an established networking environment and all our members are afforded the opportunity to up-sell their services to other businesses at nineteen,” says Mr. Miller.

“nineteen is an ideal starting point for small companies, entrepreneurs and businesses located both in and outside Hamilton and overseas looking for an affordable and professional touchdown location in the city.
