Being ‘more than just managed office space’ means we provide value in a number of ways that help your business grow …

Networking and Collaboration

The ability to interact with other businesses is (or should be) at the heart of any business’s strategy to grow.

One of the things that sets us apart as being ‘not just managed office space’ is that we encourage and facilitate networking and collaborative opportunities across and between all three of our Innovation Centres.

We hold regular networking events at each of our Centres where you will meet the other businesses and get to share what you do and hear from them. This, naturally, creates many occasions where businesses have found ways in which to collaborate and grow their business with others – sometimes in ways you just don’t expect!

In our recent annual customer survey nearly 50 percent of all businesses across our Centres stated they had benefited from collaborating with other customers in the Centres. Just think what this opportunity could do for your business.

We also run or facilitate various seminars and workshops on a variety of topics useful to your business. These are usually free to attend for Centre customers and provide even more opportunity to benefit your business in a number of ways – such as improving business processes, learning new skills or getting up to date with new legislation.


As a customer of the Cornwall Innovation Centres you are part of a community of over 140 businesses and we want you to meet and talk with as many of those other businesses as possible.

Being a part of an innovative and forward thinking community means our Centres are thriving. They have a buzz about them that invigorates and helps productivity and creative thinking.

We encourage the owners of our more established businesses to impart their wisdom and experience to start-ups (when requested!). Similarly, we often find that established businesses want to join our Centres as they benefit from the new ideas they find within!
