A new working and meeting space is being launched to help home-working employees, freelancers and micro-businesses.

The former clothing shop premises in Hamilton Road, Felixstowe will be called @Inc Felixstowe and will offer space open 24/7, superfast broadband, Zoom rooms for private telephone calls, meeting and training rooms, as well as a board room. Virtual tenancies are also available. 

@Inc Felixstowe will be a place for employees who are looking to escape the clutter of working from home, as well as enjoy the freedom and focus of a defined working space, without the associated costs.  

The new co-working space starts from just £10 per day, with an annual membership of £60. Non-members will also be welcomed to access the working space. 

The opening of the business space in Felixstowe is a joint project of MENTA, a business support organisation operating across Suffolk and Norfolk, and Penn Commercial, an Ipswich property agency. 

Both companies aim to create a space where professionals can comfortably work and expand their businesses.  

Robin Cousins, associate at Penn Commercial, acting for landlord Barsham Securities Ltd, said: “MENTA’s plans for an inclusive, 24/7 @Inc hub will provide a much-needed entrepreneurial resource in Felixstowe and will offer an innovative and cost-effective solution to today’s flexible way of working. We wish them the very best of success with this pioneering venture in the town.”
