Hello World! We’re excited to announce a new initiative for companies across The Park! SJIC Sundowners is a series of relaxed, late afternoon events with entrepreneurs, founders, investors and inspiring people, designed to exchange know-how, take risks and drive change.


JOIN US for the pilot event with beer and street-style food taking place on Thursday, 22nd November at The Square cafe (16:30 kick off).
