Transforming people’s lives through Skills, Employment, Enterprise & Innovation, for growth.

 In 2013 Ixion Innovation decided to seek good quality office space in Leicestershire to base a start-up Research and Innovation grant funding business.

“After considering several options, we selected the Harborough Innovation Centre for the following reasons :

  1. An excellent building with a professional ambience.
  2. Convenient location
  3. A very welcoming attitude from the reception staff (especially Liza and Mick)

We have found the centre to be extremely friendly and welcoming, both from HIC staff and tenants. There is a nice atmosphere at the centre. We were also impressed by the ongoing levels of support from the Centre staff, nothing was too much trouble for them. The on-site Bistro offers excellent food and great value, and the ability to provide buffet lunches for clients was a really important bonus for us. Our clients also found the centre to be a pleasant place to visit.

In the 4 years we were based at HIC we grew from 3 staff to 14 and when we finally outgrew the facility in mid-2017 we were all extremely sad to leave. I’m sure the centre will make an equally attractive home for any start-up/micro business.”
