Whether you need access to finance to expand or buy new equipment or require support for your business sector, the Growth Hub will find the best services to suit your needs.
Typical support which R & D based businesses at the science park can expect include the D2N2 Growth Hub ScaleUp programme , which offers a platinum service for ambitious companies as well as high growth ‘scale-ups’ around leadership and management, routes to market and investment readiness.
This simple diagnostic process offers excellent links into Nottingham’s two universities introducing businesses to a range of collaborative research and development (CR&D) opportunities around: student talent (placements, internships, graduate recruitment etc.) and Research (including Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and other larger Innovate UK projects which help facilitate access to academic expertise).
