    Virtual Office Space FAQs

    Can I meet my clients in-person at the Innovation Centre?
    Yes, absolutely. As part of our virtual office packages, you get a discount on meeting room hire. 

    I need a desk for the day – can I come to the Centre?
    You are welcome to use our drop-in coworking space by the day, as and when you need it.

    If I want to take physical office space, what are my options?
    We have multiple options for expanding into physical space. Our dedicated desks offer a permanent place to work in a shared coworking space; or alternatively, you can hire your own private office space.

    What our customers say

    "Being part of ICKG has been fundamental in the growth of Ubie Ltd. Having the expert advice of business coach Neil Griffin on-site and regular events organised by Georgina Watts, makes the centre stand out from a traditional office space. The collaboration aspect of having a fixed desk has opened multiple opportunities for my company."
