Site Visits: Innovation Martlesham

The Essex MBA students visit Innovation Martlesham as part of the Director's Workshops.
Innovation Martlesham is an established cluster of high-tech ICT companies located at Adastral Park in Ipswich. The purpose of this site visit is to learn from the experiences of resident entrepreneurs and to expose our MBAs to incubation and innovation spaces to help them develop their own ideas.

Our MBA students participated in a workshop delivered by Head of Innovation Martlesham, Nicky Daniels and Innovation Martlesham's Head of Business Support and Development Jim Milne. The workshop introduced our MBAs to start-up incubation in the IT and communications sectors.

The students then took part in a site tour where they met with several Innovation Martlesham tenants, including: Dr Nick Miner of business consultants Milner Strategic Marketing Ltd; Andy Rogers of business design consultants Rokker Ltd; and Jim Marshall, CEO of specialist recruitment agents Marshall Wolfe.

Our MBAs also visited the BT innovation labs. These are also based at Adastral Park and are BT’s site for developing new technologies to "inspire customers through brilliant innovations".
