By providing support to people and their ideas the centre has seen dozens of start-ups and fledgling businesses grow. Utilising the experience of Oxford Innovation Space, the managing agent, and a dedicated on-site team, SBIC maintains an environment for businesses to collaborate, fostering both innovation and development.
