Derbion is once again offering entrepreneurs the chance to win free retail space inside the shopping centre with the launch of its Hatch competition.

The initiative offers small business owners the opportunity to take their brand to the next level and open a store within the centre.

The prize includes a store in Derbion for a period of six weeks, completely rent free.

As well as winning prime retail space and benefiting from the centre’s annual footfall, the winner will also receive marketing support from Derbion to further build awareness of their business.

This will be the fourth year that Derbion has run the competition, which was first launched in 2019.

In that time, it has helped a number of fledgling businesses grow awareness of their brand.

Beth McDonald, commercial director at Derbion, said: “Our Hatch competition is always very popular, so we’re delighted to announce that the initiative will be returning for a fourth year.

“We truly do believe that this competition provides small businesses across the region with a brilliant opportunity to further build on their existing brand and grow to the next level.

“So, whether you know a start-up or small business who would love the chance to win rent-free retail space, are a Midlands-based entrepreneur who dreams of the opportunity to join a busy city shopping destination, or even if you’re an online retailer who wants to take the step into a physical store, we’d love to hear from you.”

Entries for the Hatch initiative close on Friday 31 March, with the winner being announced in April.
