We also provide business space options and have a history of running face-to-face business and networking events in the East of England within easy access of London.

    The MENTA workshops for start-ups were invaluable in helping us to make progress with our small business. In addition to the excellent resources and tailored advice that we received, the team made the sessions fun and engaging. It was also a great opportunity to meet other people who are starting out.

      Great office space for those times when you need somewhere more formal to work, and you aren't office based. A good choice of different space (private/board room/desk space etc). Clean, tidy, modern environment and good facilities on site for tea/coffee. Close to town centre and parking. Highly recommend.

        I took part in all three workshops, each of which was very informative. The hosts were great, very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Couldn't have asked for a better start. Thank you
