"This is what our July 21 event is all about and kicks off a series events that we will be holding throughout the year and in the autumn as part of the West Suffolk Business Festival.

“The EpiCentre plays a key role in supporting business in the East of England along with the flexible lab, office and event space we also offer FREE business support,” whether this be sign-posting to investment, 1-2-1 coaching or creating solid business plans and strategy,” added Kelly.

“This event is designed not only to demonstrate the strength of our own team and offering but also the infrastructure of business support that exists from the wider business network that can help build and reinforce this eco-system and help businesses with their own ambitions to strengthen and grow.”

The in-person Tech & Beer event kicks off at 5.30pm live from The EpiCentre – and for those joining remotely, who want to listen to the five inspiring speakers the virtual session starts online at 6.30pm. For tickets click here
