Looking for workspace?

As part of its core package, Oxford Innovation provides Business Support to micro and small businesses, offering them a better chance to survive, grow and innovate.

 

We recognise that a quality work environment that delivers success includes more than just the physical space and business services. It involves regular access to entrepreneurs, mentors, investors and subject experts. So we design this ‘Business Support’ to be integral to the core package our centre customers receive.

We deliver this essential support via Innovation Directors who are resident in our centres. They are seasoned business experts bringing specialist know-how and entrepreneurial experience – and collectively cover the array of skills required by customers to succeed. The Innovation Director will conduct periodic business diagnostic and review sessions with each customer – agreeing bespoke support that is dependent on the business life-stage and the challenges and opportunities it is currently or likely to face.

We also run numerous customer focused programmes within our centres, providing specialist support and workspace to start-ups and growing businesses. Our customers’ success is our success – we want to be there alongside them all the way.
