Business Incubation Facilities
There are nine modern, equipped 20.5m2 business units at e3 with a range of benefits including:
- easy in/easy out terms;
- free car parking with 24/7 access;
- access to an onsite SME Enterprise Officer for advice and signposting;

The process of incubation is much more than bricks and mortar. It provides synergy and support for entrepreneurs and encourages peer-to-peer sharing of successes and challenges with business owners facing similar issues.
As a hub for business resources, e3 connects clients to programmes, funding opportunities, and entrepreneurial resources that accelerate growth and profitability.
Our goal is to build a culture where businesses learn from each other and collaborate on projects. We are not just about the space but developing people to gain results.
At e3 we offer a range of flexible and affordable packages for individuals and organisations to take advantage of our first class facilities.
