Delivered by MENTA business support, the non-for-profit organization has received backing from Suffolk Growth partnership to help fund the new space.
The new site has already seen freelancers take up residency and utilize the range of working spaces, zoom meeting rooms, one of the new co-working space members is Zeb Applegate, a graphic designer from Trimley, he said “this space offers me more than a desk, it gives me human connectivity, having worked from home for the past 18 months, I have found it negative to my creative thinking and being able to take a lunch break on the prom and then head back here is so good for me and my business”
MENTA CEO ALEX TILL said
“What a great even we have had, wonderful support from across the East Suffolk district and with Felixstowe about to become a digital town with FREE Wi-Fi connectivity, we are thrilled to be part of the Hamilton Road community offering the wider area support with their business growth plans and helping individuals move to self-employment and personal advancement”
The new co-working and business hub is at 87 Hamilton Road and the project manager, Suzanne Banks said “we offer 24/7 access, private meeting space, marketing, and digital skills events to help the varying sector of businesses in the area. I have taken bookings this week for meeting rooms and inquiries about business grants – we have been made to feel so welcome in Felixstowe and the launch event was a great way to make new connections from across the town”
The launch was streamed across YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and guests enjoyed live performances from local musicians.
