On Tuesday 11th December, Incubyte and Paragon Land & Estates hosted a mini launch event on the Cambridge Innovation Park to mark the official opening of their new office space; aptly named IncubyteSpace.

Incubyte, now 18 months old, is a co-working environment and business incubator for early-stage technology companies. IncubyteSpace which is approximately 60% full already, provides scale-ups, freelancers and small businesses with a flexible, private and dedicated office environment in which to work alongside, and network with like-minded businesses.

Delegates were shown the new meeting room facility onsite, informed about better working lifestyle facilities and future plans at Cambridge Innovation Park and exciting expansion plans for IncubyteSpace in Q1 2019 were exclusively revealed - watch this space!
