BASE Bordon Innovation Centre has celebrated its first five years of existence at the former Louisburg Barracks.

To mark the occasion the centre invited businesses, both past and present, to get together for a celebratory afternoon of networking, stories and celebratory cake. More than 60 people attended.

Since opening in 2017, the innovation centre has supported 79 businesses across sectors including professional services, digital and technology.

Sarah Hall, business growth manager at BASE, said: “It was so nice to see people coming together and celebrating their growth and their journey as a business owner in a space where they have felt supported. It was lovely to hear some of the speakers talk about the support they have received in the centre as well as how the businesses have supported each other over the past five years.

“I can’t wait for the next five years, where we will be focusing on more events at the centre and providing a support network for existing and new customers.”
