Ore Valley Business Incubator

OVHA has opened a business incubation facility offering ad hoc/short-term services such as desk/office space and virtual office facilities for new and emerging businesses in our Ore Valley Business Centre in Lochgelly. The intention is to offer something between developing a business at home and a fully-fledged office rental to help kickstart economic growth in Fife following the impact of Covid-19.
