Cutting edge European company expands into UK market

Kevin Bull and Mark Smith at Lipscore

Two Peterborough entrepreneurs have launched a brand new UK base for European reviews and ratings firm, Lipscore, opening its headquarters at the new FigFlex Peterborough at Lynch Wood Park.

Business partners, Kevin Bull and Mark Smith, launched the online reviews platform at FigFlex Peterborough, becoming the latest start-up to take space at FigFlex at Lynch Wood Park since it launched in May this year.

Making the leap into the UK market, Lipscore UK is a cutting-edge platform that started its journey in Norway and expanded through Northern Europe. The platform is designed to gather reviews and ratings, helping companies become more profitable by providing access to important customer insight, product insight and purchasing power.

Kevin, Lipscore UK CEO, commented: “Choosing a serviced office provider such as FigFlex was so important to us as a start-up company. We have everything we need here but we also have the flexibility to change or expand our space as our team grows.

“Most businesses starting up forget that chairs, desks, printers and wifi come at a cost, so being able to get started on day one without having to worry about that was a huge plus for us.”

“When you’re a small business, having a network of other businesses and experts around you is so valuable. We were looking for something easy, cost-efficient yet still professional to nurture our business in the UK market – and FigFlex was the perfect match.

“Mark and I have actually been ‘here’ before with a start-up that went from three people to 50, so we think we know the road ahead and that is to organically grow our base of customers and the team around that. Our plan is to have a few more FigFlex Offices in the not too distant future.”

FigFlex Peterborough launched earlier this year becoming the sixth UK location for the flexible office provider. Based at Lynch Wood Park, FigFlex offers 8,000 sq ft of flexible and collaborative workspace, including 100 workstations, co-working areas, break-out spaces, virtual offices and meeting rooms.

Managed by a dedicated centre management team, FigFlex Peterborough offers optional services,

Charlie Cudworth, Managing Director FigFlex: “Peterborough is one of the most entrepreneurial cities in the UK, and having a diverse variety of office space is absolutely vital to businesses whether they are homegrown start ups or those looking to expand in this fantastic city. Our aim at FigFlex has been to provide a mix of space for short term lease, giving businesses like Lipscore the perfect base to thrive.”

Businesses at FigFlex Peterborough benefit from a wide range of amenities available at Lynch Wood Park, which is based three miles west of Peterborough city centre. Packages at FigFlex include serviced offices, day offices, coworking space, hot desking and optional extras.
