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.”

We have seen how Covid has affected workers and are pleased to offer a welcoming, sociable space for them."
