Curren has been awarded a Vice Chancellor’s Enterprise Award by Plymouth University in recognition of his efforts to launch and develop the business acceleration centres, which were recently ranked among the best in the world by UK Business Incubation (UKBI)

Pool Innovation Centre, Tremough Innovation Centre and the Health and Wellbeing Centre in Truro have together created over 100 new jobs in the last three years, with tenant companies reporting an average annual 40% growth rate.

Curren commented: “The Innovation Centres are inspiring places to work and a first-class platform to support business growth, and I am enormously proud to work with Plymouth University to help so many fantastic companies in Cornwall to grow, develop and realise their ambitions.”
