The EpiCentre ‘Back to Business’
October 6 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pmFree
About the Event
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.
The new EpiCentre in Haverhill wants to help build a stronger community, bringing together like-minded professionals and create a culture that cultivates and inspires collaboration. This strategy forms the basis of Oxford Innovation’s network of 26 centres around the UK, uniquely positioned to offer business support services through centre Innovation Directors. 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, 121 coaching or creating solid business plans and strategy. 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 network that can help build and reinforce this eco-system and help your business with your own ambitions to strengthen and grow.
Each exhibitor will have an exhibition stand and will be on-hand throughout the day to offer support and guidance to businesses. You can meet some fantastic organisations informally over free-flowing tea and coffee to get some hands-on advice. No need to book any appointments but do ensure you have a ticket for the event. The Epicentre continues to maintain COVID Safe guidance.
Drop in any time between 9:30am to 3:30pm.
Event tickets are complimentary for attendees and can be booked via Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/back-to-business-tickets-151080115693?aff=Website
