In recent months the Government has announced its industrial strategy, which includes the creative industries but places a greater emphasis on science and technology (STEM). Here at SPARK we are keen to maintain our focus on ‘STEAM’ ensuring arts and creative industries are fully included in all of our activities.
Business incubation is a recognised and established tool in economic development. The provision of start-up assistance including vital space, services, knowledge and contracts are proven to stimulate development of successful enterprises, drive innovation, creativity and technology commercialisation. This helps to create jobs, attract new business and diversify local economies- something that is greatly needed within Wolverhampton.
SPARK Business Incubation Hub located at Wolverhampton Science Park provides the perfect modern, supported, office environment for new start creative, science and technology businesses in the West Midlands.
We have a vibrant and interactive community of new businesses who genuinely believe there is a benefit to having other entrepreneurs around sharing the passion of launching new enterprises. By developing not only a supportive environment but also a collaborative environment our companies have been able to make full use of each other‘s skills, thus offering a wider range of services than would be possible as individual companies.
Simon Bowring of Transitiv Technologies Limited said,
“SPARK ticks all the right boxes for a ‘new start-up’ company looking for its first business premises. Not only is it exceptionally cost effective in these times of austerity but it is also a relaxed and aesthetic location to work from with excellent facilities. The convenient location with parking, access to meeting rooms for customer visits and support and mentoring is the icing on the cake”.
If you are currently starting or thinking of starting a new business in the ICT, technology or creative sectors come and have a look at the facilities and support our Hub offers.
