We’re part of the Hiscox Business Club

“If we adopt the same collaborative mindset and practices that got to the moon and back, and that built the International Space Station, we can alleviate poverty—and do much more.”
Ron Garan

We might not be fighting poverty, but this quote couldn’t ring more true. Collaboration is an exceptional way for any business to grow, improve and learn.

When Hiscox Insurance opened their new office in the centre of York, with the integrated Hiscox Business Club, we knew we wanted to be involved. The opportunity came with a shared work space in their impressive new office, that had become the home of a huge range of businesses in Yorkshire, including a copywriter, marketing agency, software developers, and even an ice-cream shop.

We love the Text Mining Solutions office, so the idea wasn’t to move into Hiscox full time. But rather, have a hub away from the office where we can go to meet clients, network with other local businesses, and simply enjoy being in such a creative space (yes, that is a rocket in reception. Another reason that the original quote was so relevant!). Plus, there has been the opportunity to attend business events from Everyday People.

Has mixing up our workspace made a difference though? Well, it’s definitely helped us in making some great connections. A fellow Business Club member was NIMA; a marketing agency dealing with all aspects of offline and online marketing, including web design. We’d been toying with the idea of restyling the Text Mining Solutions website, and now seemed the perfect opportunity. We started with a meeting under the rocket, where Mark from NIMA was able to hear my ideas, before going away to develop the new website that you see today.

We’re looking forward to seeing what the next few months have in store for the business, and what other collaborations may arise from the Business Club.
