Family matters

As a new mum, Shazia Mustafa (Mathematics 1997) wanted to return to work. She found it difficult to brainstorm ideas whilst meeting the needs of her daughter. “I wished for a place I could work, whilst she was cared for nearby,” she says. That’s when the idea for Third Door, the UK’s first co-working and flexible business hybrid, was born. Third Door allows members to work upstairs whilst their children are downstairs in an Ofsted nursery.
