Hi-tech businesses get free desk space for a year

UWE Bristol are offering a free residency at their Launch Space for recent graduates with a great tech idea

Posted by Charley Rogers | September 14, 2017 | Business

‘Launch Space’, a graduate high-tech business incubator, provides start-ups with one year of free desk space and business support from the end of October 2017.

Start-ups benefit from the chance to develop business contacts, gain access to mentorship and talks by visiting businesses, as well as access to the UWE Bristol research community.

‘Launch Space’ Incubation Manager Kim Brookes, said, "Launch Space provides valuable connections between the bright graduates with tech-related ideas, businesses looking to invest or be involved in an exciting entreprise, and academic and technical experts.” 

Residency in the incubator is available to individuals who have graduated in the past three years, with no age limit for applicants.

Those applying are required to register their business in the UK, and need to be based in the South West of England (Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire, and North Somerset). 

For the new intake, interested graduates can apply online until 30 September, with interviews planned for the first week of October.

Those selected will then attend a three-day induction. 

Current residents set up at Launch Space span a wide range of innovative technology ideas. One entrepreneur is designing an environmental mask that filters out harmful pollutants and automatically notifies the user when contaminants are present in the air. Another is designing an app to make it easier for the rental of student accommodation. The platform bypasses estate agents and removes the need to pay a deposit upfront.
