An entrepreneur has her sights set on conquering Down Under and Stateside after buying a business that supports home workers.

Jo Cameron has bought Colleagues on Tap from founder Jayne Graham and has ambitious plans to grow it exponentially both in the UK and abroad.

Colleagues on Tap was founded in the North East in 2010 to help home-based small business owners come together on a regular basis in an office environment for the day, where they are able to share experiences, mentor one another and combat the isolation of working alone.

Demand for Colleagues on Tap has seen it grow from a single venue monthly meet-up to a community of 300-plus businesses coming together at nine venues across Northumberland, County Durham, Teesside and Tyne and Wear.

Jo bought Colleagues on Tap having seen the positive impact it had on her own company, Remote HR Solutions.
