Why Start Up in Ipswich

Ipswich town centre is home to many independent shops and is one of the Top 10 places in the UK to visit for unique stores, so makes a great place to start your own business!

There is a very strong entrepreneurial ecosystem in Ipswich, with lots of support available for startups and entrepreneurs to establish and grow. Networking and collaboration with industry professionals is encouraged, as well as partnership working and local events to support growth.

Innovation and entrepreneurship are encouraged, with available resources, support services, mentorship and guidance as well as funding, investment or grant opportunities all available.

The town also has a huge choice of shared office space for co-working around the town centre, the outskirts and near to the waterfront as well as larger premises within walking distance of the train station, which is an hour from London.

The town is a great base for larger transport and logistics companies thanks to the Port of Ipswich and larger Ports of Felixstowe and Harwich nearby, with its close proximity the A14 to Cambridge and A12 to London. The Eastern Gateway development to the west of Ipswich also offers larger warehouse premises in a great location.
