Happy members

The ii support for my digital business has been incredible. It’s a place where I not only can meet and share ideas with other entrepreneurs and remote workers in different fields, but the ability to attend business support sessions and workshops has been invaluable.

And it doesn’t hurt that the space is architecturally amazing, and there’s always a cup of coffee at hand. Oh, and did I mention that it’s a quick walk to the beach and cafes when you need a break?

A bright modern multipurpose working space, conference space, breakout spaces, quiet rooms for meetings & lots of hot desks. Also permanent offices on offer. Also easy parking, decent coffee and a warm welcome from the Manager Anne Marie. I would also add it is a good quiet space with excellent broadband and easy connection with monitors provided on the desks. Easy to get work done in this space. You can also meet other remote workers. Well done to all involved in creating this modern working hub. Cannot recommend enough. Lastly great coffee and small kitchen with everything you need.
