Business Support

One of the key differentiators of an Innovation Centre from traditional serviced office or managed workspace is the provision of tailored business support services.

Our aim in all of our centres is to provide an environment in which our centre customers have access to all the resources that they need in order to become successful, grow and ultimately graduate from the centre into independent accommodation. We do this by combining on-site advisory and support services delivered by our network of Incubation Directors, with facilitated access to advice, support and networking resources available from local providers as well as our own wider network.

This approach means that the Innovation Centres become an integral part of the wider “eco-system” of support for entrepreneurs and innovative businesses, channelling support into the centre, providing complementary services in order to create a comprehensive range of support and, if appropriate funding is available, delivering support to external businesses as well. We recognise that companies in Innovation Centres have a range of needs in order to achieve success and growth.

Our business support programmes have been proven to deliver the following outputs:

  • Increased levels of business start ups
  • Sustained business growth
  • Increased business start-ups survival rates
  • Sustained job creation

We deliver business support to centre customers and through outreach programmes depending on the priorities and objectives of the local area.  If you'd like to know more, please contact Rachel Panther on 01865 261489 or use the contact us form.
