CIC Association

Serving Community Enterprise



Motolab CIC was established in April 2012 as a Company Ltd by shares and converted to a CIC this month.


I created the company to build a facility, that could offer product design and development services that could help to bring new innovative ideas and concepts to life, for those who are disadvantaged through:

A. Age.

B. Disability.

C. Long term unemployment.

D. Living in a deprived area.

E. Lack of key skills or experience.

We also want to offer our service to existing not-for-profit Social Enterprises, including :

F. Registered Charities and G. Community Interest Companies.


The main aim is to create sustainable products.


The company, so far just has myself as an unpaid Director / designer, cup washer etc.

I have funded the company since April and the internal construction work including all electrics etc is now complete and paid for.

Now that this is completed, I am seeking Grant funds to purchase the appropriate machines to kit the facility out.


At present the company has no overdraft or loans.


I do require 2 Directors and at least 3 Board members.


I do not see distance as an issue, as communication such as skype normally makes things quite easy regardless of physical location.


If you would like to take up this offer to reciprocate, I would be pleased to hear from you.

Update time.

I recently started up AfroAsia CIC and work training and work experience provision is one of the things that we also have in mind, i wonder if we can work together.

I note you posted a good 2 years ago, and assume you may already have moved on, but do welcome your input and interest if any in joining us as a board member
