Bring your idea
Through our challenge-led innovation programme, we’ll give you the opportunity to solve real cyber challenges set by real businesses – then give you the support you need to turn your innovations into a commercial success.
If we can identify a commercial pathway for your solution, we’ll help you bring it to market and sell it back to the businesses who told us they need it.
You will receive a tax free £1,500 monthly stipend and access to physical space – allowing you and your team to immerse yourselves in the entrepreneurial journey without the financial constraints.
Together you will take the spark of a concept to a fully-fledged commercial venture within 12 months, that will grow and scale across the world.
Build your team
Do you have a solution that you feel is commercially viable but lack the team to make it happen? Our challenge programme builds teams around Domain Knowledge Experts to make that solution a reality.
You may feel you need someone with commercial skills, business development knowledge, or software engineering skills to help you. We are here to help you find your ideal business partners. That’s what we do, and our Hub partners have a track record in forming teams that become successful companies.
We make these things transparent. We find the best talent, and we help you put it all together to form a balanced and strong commercial team.
Through our links with organisations like Airbus, Thales and CGI, we will help you test the market demand for your solution and, if viable, help to build the team around you to take it to market.
Our world class testbeds representative of smart cities, manufacturing systems, connected vehicles and large scale virtualised IT networks support product development and validation.
Join a startup

We’re looking for a diverse range of people. Maybe you are the commercial genius or the programming guru that could help?
We’ll put you on our unique entrepreneurship programme to help you build your business model. We’ll partner you with world leading researchers and industry partners to ensure your solution is at the cutting edge of the market. We’ll help you validate your solution in realistic scenarios.

You will also receive a £1500 monthly stipend and access to physical space – allowing you and your team to immerse yourselves in the entrepreneurial journey without the financial constraints.
