Cornwall Innovation has added 13 new companies to its innovation centres in Truro, Pool and Penryn since March.
Cornwall Innovation said that the number of new customers and overall enquiries had exceeded initial forecasts made at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic and reflected the need for Covid-19 secure, quality accommodation with access to business support and external funding initiatives.
Those taking up office space in the three innovation centres include a renewable energy research business, a nanotechnology innovator and specialists in digital marketing and outsourced IT support.
Matt Harrington, who leads the project has said: “We are delighted to be expanding our business community. In addition to welcoming these 13 new customers over the past few months, we have developed a strong pipeline of enquiries all of which has exceeded our expectations of recovery during the pandemic.
“The demand from businesses looking to move into our Innovation centres bucks the trend of what many are describing as the ‘end of the office’ and shows that there is a demand for high quality, Covid-secure workspaces, which we are ideally placed to provide.
“The companies who have joined us over recent months include early stage and more established ventures, across a range of sectors. They all have ambitions to grow and create new, high quality jobs in Cornwall. Crucially, they share our enthusiasm for being part of a vibrant and collaborative business community that is about so much more than office space.”
