ANTZ Salford in partnership with Martin Ainscough

The concept of Antz Junction was conceived and developed by Jen Pemberton of Antz Network. She created the business network in September 2011 which embraces a number of like-minded businesses that want to grow commercially whilst giving back and connecting to community. These businesses are looking for talent for succession planning, or their next employee through a route into an untapped labour force.

In October 2011 she was approached by Martin Ainscough to provide advice on the development of the site and, in particular, the use of the two empty buildings as a centre for charitable organisations. The buildings now house a number of charities and micro business. These organisations are key to the success of our employment programmes as they provide work experience for members.

Visionary Clive Memmott CEO of GMCC, working together with Antz in late 2013, was the first to identify the role of the commercial sector and the Chamber of Commerce’s members in providing the essential support and platform of opportunity for community and business.

This approach also forms relationships between local businesses and provides a strategic results focused community give back model that can be built into the fabric of its members commercial operation and business network.

The Bolton building donated by GMCC was the last piece in the puzzle to help us launch this exciting initiative and to make it a reality.
