The EpiCentre’s centre manager Kelly Boosey says: “As we prepare to get ‘back to business’ post-Covid, many people are not aware of the support available to them locally to help with recovery, growth and acceleration. This is what our 21st July event is all about and kicks off a series events that we will be holding throughout the year and in the autumn as part of the West Suffolk Business Festival.

“The EpiCentre plays a key role in supporting business in the East of England along with the flexible lab, office and event space we also offer FREE business support,” whether this be sign-posting to investment, 1-2-1 coaching or creating solid business plans and strategy,” adds Boosey.

“This event is designed not only to demonstrate the strength of our own team and offering but also the infrastructure of business support that exists from the wider business network that can help build and reinforce this eco-system and help businesses with their own ambitions to strengthen and grow.”
