    What our customers say

    “The Innovation Centre is a great location for young thriving tech businesses. The facilities, business community and support have been invaluable to us and would benefit any business. ICKG is located in the University of Essex’s Enterprise Zone, and this has been of particular benefit to us as we work closely with the University’s academics, students from the drama school, and we are also looking to hire interns and graduates to build our human resources capacity.”

    Access University Connections & Resources

    Our Centre is based at the Knowledge Gateway research and technology park, on the University of Essex campus in Colchester – an official University Enterprise Zone designated by the Government as a centre for nurturing and supporting new digital and creative businesses.

    This means that Innovation Centre customers can benefit from short and long-term support from students and academics, as well access to cutting-edge research, equipment, expertise and facilities.
