Connecting not networking - this is social science

We believe in bringing entrepreneurs together to share ideas and solve problems in a relaxed environment. As a dynamic science and technology community, we don’t believe in name badges and awkward introductions. Instead, we have informal catch-up coffee mornings and sports clubs, where there’s no pressure to ‘network’ – just the opportunity to say hello to like-minded people who might be able to help you. And vice versa.

We believe in space that brings startups and growing companies together to innovate, share and inspire.
