Imperial College London launches tech growth hub for scaleups
A new technology hub led by Imperial College London has launched in its White City campus.
The college has teamed up with venture specialist Blenheim Chalcot to launch Scale Space to support the growth of local scaleups.
The new 200,000 sq ft facility, which is set to be formally launched in September, will be home to scaleups across the technology, digital and life-sciences sectors.
Mark Sanders, executive chairman of Scale Space, commented: “So much has been said about access to space, and while this is important it does not begin to address the challenges that growing businesses face as they scale. Our approach is entirely new.
“We’ve created Scale Space to help technology, life-science and digital businesses, through a combination of practical business building know-how, high-quality academic input and access to research and talent, which I believe makes us very different.
“Scale Space White City is particularly exciting as we are able to work with Imperial College, a world leading university, and its Business School.”
