A new work and meeting space is being created to help employees working from home, the self-employed and micro-enterprises.

The former clothing store premises in Hamilton Road, Felixstowe will be called @Inc Felixstowe and will offer 24/7 open space, super-fast broadband, Zoom rooms for private phone calls, meeting rooms and training, as well as a boardroom. Virtual rentals are also available.

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

The new coworking space starts from just £10 a day, with an annual subscription of £60. Non-members will also be welcome to access the workspace.

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

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

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

The first venture, @Inc Bury St Edmunds in the town of Kings Road was a great success and saw the company launch its second location in Suffolk.

Alex Till, Managing Director of MENTA, said: “Another fantastic opportunity has arisen, following the successful launch of @Inc Bury St Edmunds, we are delighted to have been asked to develop, manage and create another space of @Inc creative work at the heart of Felixstowe in association with East Suffolk Council.

We have seen how Covid has affected workers and we are happy to provide them with a welcoming and sociable space.”

The Felixstowe business will open in late April or early May.

The commercial space launched in Felixstowe aims to be a pioneering venture in the city, which gives local entrepreneurs the opportunity to develop and expand their businesses.
