About Us

Marlowe Innovation Centre aims to help regenerate East Kent by providing high quality accommodation and support to innovative businesses. It provides motivation to local young people, notably the pupils of the nearby Royal Harbour Academy.

Marlowe Innovation Centre is run by the FFMA (Trading) Ltd, a not for profit trading arm of a charity that supports young people in East Kent.  All surpluses from Marlowe Innovation Centre are paid into this charity

  • European Regional Development Fund
  • Kent County Council
  • The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust
  • Thanet District Council
  • East Kent Partnership

In 2013, Phase 2 opened, doubling our capacity, funded by:

  • The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust
  • The Coastal Communities Fund
