Since welcoming the first tenant in January 2009, the Yeovil Innovation Centre has gone from strength to strength and now some 130 people work from the Centre and this number continues to grow.
A broad range of innovative, high-tech and start up businesses use the flexible office space, which is complimented by high speed broadband and dedicated on-site business support. In particular, the easy-in easy-out terms provides start ups with a very low risk option to get going.
Local businesses feature highly with The Western Gazette occupying the large North Wing of the building. There are at least five local start-up businesses that are thriving in the Centre and are now beginning to take on staff. Several European businesses are also based here including software developers from Portugal and Italy and a rail business from Austria.
Meeting Rooms are available for hire at reasonable rates to both tenants and external users and the Centre is also used for a variety of networking events. A large internal market exists, where tenants use each others services.
In July 2012, Microsoft chose the Centre to host their new Technology Hub, in conjunction with their Gold Partner, Perspicuity, who have been a tenant since 2010. This Hub is at present the only one in the South West and will be used to train businesses in the very latest technology available from Microsoft.
