Based within the Surrey Technology Centre on one of the most successful Science Parks in Europe (Surrey Research Park), the Surrey Centre hosts 40 desks in shared incubation space plus units ranging from 150sq ft to 890ft. It has excellent transport links to the A3, M25 and 30 minutes into London Waterloo from Guildford train station.
The Incubation Centre offers high quality office space, with facilities such as meeting rooms, reception facilities, high speed broadband access and an on-site cafe.
A wide variety of events, workshops and seminars are organised for members as well as investment readiness programmes, presentation training, access to finance and introductions across multiple networks.
Businesses can also graduate or move straight into the Surrey Technology Centre and still receive the business acceleration support we offer. Each unit within the Surrey Technology Centre is serviced to assist new businesses by providing facilities such as internet connectivity, telephone systems, meeting rooms, access to photocopiers, document preparation and postal facilities.
This provides start-up or early stage businesses an excellent opportunity to move straight into their own office, in a prestigious environment without some of the significant costs associated with starting a business. The licences for units are also on a 30 days’ notice period, allowing flexibility to grow or reduce costs rapidly when required.
