Mid Suffolk District Council is promoting Stowmarket as a Tech Hub for Suffolk. There is already a strong base of high-tech businesses working in Stowmarket that are developing cutting edge products and services across a range of fields such as Artificial Intelligence, Gamification, Virtual Reality and Digital Media.
The sector is thriving, fuelled by overspill from nearby Cambridge and Martlesham Heath powerhouses, and the excellent centrality of accessibility to both of these, as well as with Central London via the rail network.
The Council is currently undertaking a Feasibility Study into how a technology hub could work for the town by investigating the level of demand for new floorspace in a new Innovation Park or Centre of Excellence, identifying locations and premises suitable for tech companies and working with local companies to support their aspirations for growth.
