Are you looking for a new home for your innovative business? Or perhaps you would you benefit from some additional funding?
Do you have a business idea that you would like to explore or develop? Are you looking at growing your start-up but aren’t sure how to take those next steps?
At Westcott Business Incubation Centre, we may be able to help. We offer businesses support in a number of ways – providing facilities and expertise to incubatee companies, as well as research grants of up to £5,000. Various criteria apply in both cases, including your organisations’ strategic similarities to existing Westcott companies, the strength of your business case and the market potential of the resulting product.
It is possible to apply for both business support and a research grant at the same time, as well as independently of one another – follow the links below to find out more.
