Bringing Silicon Valley to Norwich

 New Co-Working Space and Innovation Centre will help young businesses to grow.

A group of local entrepreneurs have teamed up with the Innovation Labs group (iLabs) to launch a technology and innovation hub at Bizrev in the King’s Centre, in Norwich.

The lab will provide co-working space and support local entrepreneurs to help them grow global businesses.

“Norwich is well placed to compete on the International stage when it comes to innovation and it’s an attractive place to set up a business,” explained John Burroughes, who will run the Lab.

The Innovation Group Limited is spearheaded by Orbital Media CEO Peter Brady, along with Peter Basford, Founder & CEO of the Business Growth Coaches Network and Technology Communications Specialist Hermione Way, who moved from Silicon Valley to Stowmarket.

The lab in Norwich will be spearheaded by Jim Drew, the existing owner of Bizrev, and supported by John Burroughes and Tony Lawler as coaches in residence. It will offer co-working space and unrivalled support to turn ideas into scalable business.

“Norwich is already home to some world-changing technology companies. We want to attract more talent to the town and help the local community turn their ideas into scalable businesses,” John added.

The space will run a calendar of events and talks by industry leaders.
