Flexible workspace operator x+why has signed tenant and fellow B Corp, Too Good To Go, as a tenant of its new Birmingham site, Foundry at Brindleyplace.
The fast-growing company and developer of a free app which bears the same name allows users to rescue food waste. Every day, delicious, fresh food goes to waste at cafes, restaurants, hotels, shops and manufacturers – just because it hasn’t sold in time, and the Too Good To Go app allows them to buy and collect ‘Magic Bags’ of this food at greatly reduced prices to ensure that it is eaten rather than wasted.
To create an element of surprise, customers are unaware of the contents of their Magic Bag until they pick up their order.
Brindleyplace landlord – the international real estate firm, Hines – has partnered with x+why to operate the 40,000 sq ft of space which is spread over the first, second and third floors of Foundry and provides a fully serviced and managed work environment. The space has been designed to support and inspire young, impact-led companies on their journey to profit.
With wellbeing, collaboration and fun at the heart of the entrepreneurial hub, it is a destination for business and personal development – in addition to meeting growing demand for flexible workspace in the Midlands.
Foundry is promoted as a thriving community with amenities that even the largest corporates would be proud of, ranging from spaces for corporate events to a tech-enabled gym.
B Corporation certification commits companies to reinventing business by pursuing purpose as well as profit.
Foundry is working towards a RICS-accredited SKA Gold rating which will actively demonstrate its commitment to sustainability.
Jess Banner , Regional Lead (Midlands) at Too Good To Go, says: “We chose x+why’s space at Foundry because, as fellow B Corps, we share very similar ethics when it comes to the importance of sustainability and wellbeing at work”
“We’re really looking forward to being a part of the community and to meeting and collaborating with likeminded people and businesses.” adds Rupert Dean, x+why CEO. “An important commitment of becoming a B Corp is to support others with their B Corp journey, and this is a perfect example of this commitment.”
