MENTA opens new style of business workspace in Bury St Edmunds





The official opening of a new style of business hub took place yesterday with the ribbon cutting being overseen by the most recent member to sign up to utilise the new workspace.

Inc. is a new style of co-working and business space which is based in King’s Road, in Bury St Edmunds, aimed at freelancers and business people who are looking to work away from home and may now be choosing alternatives to the daily commute to work.

Alex Till, the CEO of MENTA business support, said: “Lockdown has obviously delayed our plans to open this space in the heart of Bury, but we have seen membership enquiries from January onwards and since Easter a further 20 members have signed up to use the new workspace.”

As he cut the ribbon, David said: “This is a great place for me to make new business connections and escape home.”
