About Us

TEGretail is the trading name of TEGVIRTUAL CIC. We support both established retail businesses and Startups as well as delivering the formula for transforming the dwindling of UK High Street Retail.

TEGretail, is a pioneering Social Enterprise, based in the Innovation Centre, Westlakes Science Park

Our vision is dedicated to revitalising declining areas and fostering vibrant communities, through the support of existing businesses and the establishment of start up businesses and retail stores.

Our mission is to boost local economies and create a more vibrant environment on the high street. Bringing back footfall and the buzz we all benefit from to the areas that need it the most.

We provide businesses with the opportunity to have bespoke mentorship from experienced retail experts. We work to attract customers and visitors to town centres and create thriving start-up business hubs.

TEGretail is creating a future where businesses are not only sustainable but have the increased opportunity to transition into a retail space on the high street.

We believe, by offering a platform for these businesses to showcase their products and services, we can foster entrepreneurship and economic development in declining areas. Our ultimate goal is to create vibrant communities that are sustainable, economically prosperous and socially thriving.

We are long term investors in people and developers of growing businesses.

Our aim is to nurture innovative people and organisations with business sustainability at the core.

At TEGretail, our strength lies not just in the individual excellence of our team members but in our collective vision. A vision that sees beyond profits to the impact we have on the world, a vision that values innovation not just for the competitive edge it provides but for the solutions it offers to global challenges. We are united by the belief that business is not just about transactions but about creating value that lasts, about making a difference in the world we all share.

We’re on a journey to redefine what it means to be successful in business. It’s not just about the bottom line but about how we get there—by investing in people, nurturing innovation, and committing to sustainability at every step. This is the ethos that defines us, the mission that drives us, and the future we’re building together.
