Wanting to carry out market research about your social enterprise idea? The Policebox are looking to help people wanting to test out their business ideas.
The policebox supports a wide variety of community activities, campaigns, entrepreneurs, foodies and creatives through their Leith walk police box. The former police box is an iconic building, situated on one of the busiest shopping streets in Edinburgh, with, at peak times over 300 people pass each hour.
The box has a power supply, a table and a gazebo. The renting rates are affordable and lets are flexible. They have a special rate for charities and for those on low incomes (from £15 on a weekday). With the organisation offering to help with social media, publicity and any practical issues that arise on the day, it’s a great place to get the message out about your idea.
