From Monday 9 November 2015, businesses in West Norfolk will be one step closer to benefitting from the services The King’s Lynn Innovation Centre (KLIC) will offer, as a Pop-up Enterprise Centre opens in the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk offices in King’s Lynn.

The King’s Lynn Innovation Centre will provide support for start-up companies and aspiring entrepreneurs in order to deliver economic growth in the area, and the temporary Pop-up Enterprise Centre aims to offer information about the services KLIC will provide until the building opens its doors in spring 2016.

Staff from Nwes, a leading enterprise agency, will be on hand at the Pop-up Enterprise Centre Monday to Friday during business hours to discuss what office space will be available to rent at KLIC, how you can book meeting rooms and conferencing facilities, and how local businesses can access business advice and support from Nwes.

John Balch, Strategic Director at Nwes said: “The King’s Lynn Innovation Centre, which will support the local community by delivering a comprehensive package of help to overcome the barriers to setting up in business, is nearing completion but until you can step into the building itself, Nwes and its partners invite you to visit the KLIC Pop-up Enterprise Centre.

“We want local residents and businesses to take this opportunity to meet Nwes staff, ask any questions you have and learn about how a serviced, state-of-the-art office could help you start or run your business more effectively.”

Leader of the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Cllr Nick Daubney added: “Supporting economic development in West Norfolk is a key priority for us and we are delighted to be able to help promote the new King’s Lynn Innovation Centre by hosting the Pop-up Enterprise Centre at our offices. I would urge business start-ups and entrepreneurs to come along and see what help, support and assistance will be on offer.”

The new centre will be owned and operated by Nwes and provide high-calibre one-to-one advice, mentoring, workshops, and access to financial support for local businesses. As a contemporary commercial workspace it will also act as a catalyst for further highly skilled employment opportunities on the Nar Ouse Regeneration Area site.

The £5m innovation centre has been made possible by £1.5m of funding from the Borough Council, £500,000 from Nwes and £2.5m of Growing Places Fund loan and £500,000 Growth Deal funding from New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership. KLIC has been designed by architects Feilden+Mawson and is the latest in a large portfolio of innovation centre concepts for the Norwich-based firm.
