New business incubator facility commences in Loughborough


Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park is creating a go-to location for pre- and early-stage start-ups that will support their successful growth.

Based in the Holywell Building, it will be open to Loughborough’s alumni, doctoral researchers, staff, T1 Graduate Entrepreneur Visa holders as well as local entrepreneurs.

Everyone who takes space at the facility will be allocated a desk and storage space in the open-plan office, and have access to a breakout area, kitchen and meeting rooms.

The University is creating a supportive, collaborative environment to help budding businesses grow. In addition to accommodation needs business people can access business support and development workshops, mentoring, and access to funding opportunities.

All new tenants will sign a non-disclosure agreement to protect IP and the incubator has quiet spaces and meeting rooms, specifically for confidential work and discussions.

Sharing knowledge, experience and support with like-minded entrepreneurs is invaluable for start-ups and will be encouraged wherever possible and appropriate.

Businesses that make their home at the incubator will enjoy a range of benefits. They’ll join the established LUSEP innovation community of more than 75 organisations, and be able to take advantage of the full Campus Partner Offer. Another advantage of joining LUSEP is being able to use the campus amenities, including the sports facilities, library, and discounted design and print services.  

Companies also enjoy internet access and secure building access as standard.

The first tenants are already being welcomed and it is expected that demand for space will be strong. 

By joining the incubator’s pilot phase, the first cohort of tenants can take advantage of reduced rates as the full range of support and facilities is developed. 

Anyone interested in finding out more about the pilot co-working community should contact Megan Powell Vreeswijk via
