@Inc.Suffolk breezes into Felixstowe.

@Inc.Suffolk breezes into Felixstowe.

A new way to work is to be offered in Felixstowe with the opening of the @Inc. co-working and business hub. The new offering follows the successful launch last year of a similar property in Bury St Edmunds.

Suzanne Banks is the project lead and says, “We will have on-site business support with digital skills training, marketing, and sales expertise as well as access to grants and business finance + events and of course, our popular co-working and meeting spaces”

@Inc. is the idea of Alex Till, CEO of MENTA Business Support, an organization that has delivered business training and support across Norfolk and Suffolk since 1984 he says!

“Another fantastic opportunity has arisen, after the successful launch of @Inc. Bury St Edmunds, we are thrilled to have been invited to develop, manage, and create another @Inc. creative co-working space in the heart of Felixstowe in association with the team at Suffolk Growth at East Suffolk Council.

“As part of the Suffolk Inclusive Growth Investment Fund (SIGIF), we are collaborating with a range of stakeholders and partners within the East to support new emerging and existing businesses, sole traders, freelancers, and micro businesses, offering a great alternative to lone home working and collaborations in unique working facilities.

“We have seen how Covid has affected this group of workers and are pleased to offer a welcoming, sociable space, with superfast broadband and which is open 24/7 for members who are wanting to work closer to home; all overlaid with business advice, training and networking events, ensuring the growth and development of their businesses.”

@Inc. in Felixstowe is centred in the very heart of the retail district at 87 Hamilton Road.

Suzanne Banks says, “we are currently moving furniture and lights into the site and will have a launch event that will be streamed live across Facebook. I have already met our business neighbours and we look forward being part of the Felixstowe business community”

@Inc. in Felixstowe will open in early May and is part of the wider delivery that MENTA is delivering across Norfolk and Suffolk of business support and business space.

Non-members will also be welcome to access @Inc. Felixstowe on Mondays to Fridays, from 8.30am to 5pm.
