About us

Europe’s only vertically integrated science and tech specialist

Our goal is to create ecosystems that increase the chance of business success whether you’re a start-up, SME or multi-national.

We do this by operating along three verticals. Helping turn an idea into a business, helping that business grow whilst providing fit-for-purpose facilities and environment catering for your business needs.

OUR THREE VERTICALS

1

Venture Building

We help turn an idea into a business and run EU’s largest network of life science incubators supported by our specialist accelerator programmes.

All our venture building activity is further supported by our internal VC fund

2

Real Estate

Curating the environments in which businesses are more likely to succeed.

We do this by facilitating community interaction, enabling access to both academia and capital  alongside helping companies attract and retain talent.
