Win Rent-Free Space

Rent-free retail space up for grabs at Derbion

We’re delighted to announce that our successful Hatch initiative is back for 2023!

The unique competition offers small business owners the chance to take their brand to the next level and open a free-of-charge store within the centre. The potentially life-changing prize includes a store in Derbion for a period of six weeks, completely rent-free.

Midlands-based entrepreneurs have until Friday 31st March to submit their applications. Following a pitch process, a winner will be selected and the store will then open later in the year.

This will be the fourth year that Derbion has run the competition, which was initially introduced in 2019. Hatch has enjoyed real success since it launched, with one of the winning businesses – Design 44 – still open at the centre due to its popularity with visitors.

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