MOBILE POP-UP INNOVATION CENTRE

Driving Business Innovation and Growth 

The Mobile Pop-up Innovation Centre will take to the road on a Thursday, arriving at its planned destination from 11:30am-2:30pm, in order to visit more of Cornwall’s towns and industrial estates. 

As part of our business outreach activity, the Mobile Pop-Up will be canvassing to help raise awareness of the business support and services available through the ATI2 (Acceleration Through Innovation 2) programme, as well as provide Cornish businesses with information and guidance about the wider support networks in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. 

In 2022 we will be drawing on success from previous Mobile Pop-Up visits to towns and we will be hosting Business Support Clinics through the year. These clinics are being planned with other business programmes so that businesses can access plenty of knowledge and support. If you would like us to visit your town or if you are part of a local business group then contact Paul Rogers, Pop-up Innovation Centre Coordinator on paul.rogers-4@plymouth.ac.uk or call 07525 770552, to discuss. 

Mobile Pop-Up Innovation Centre visits are subject to weather and health and safety considerations and so may be subject to amendment or cancellation, please follow us on Twitter (@ATI_POPUP) for the latest updates on the road. Businesses can also contact Paul Rogers, Pop-up Innovation Centre Coordinator on paul.rogers-4@plymouth.ac.uk or call 07525 770552. 

GOING VIRTUAL

Building on the success of the physical Pop-up Innovation Centres that previously opened in the high streets and industrial estates across the county, the Virtual Pop-up Centre (VPUC) takes the services of knowledge exchange, collaboration, community and support to businesses digitally.

Open to all sectors of the Cornish business community, the VPUC will include supporting information for businesses from our partner networks in Cornwall. To visit the group and to become a member: https://www.facebook.com/groups/virtualpopupcentre
