Since then, the BioCity Group has grown to include locations in Cheshire, Scotland and Nottingham and has launched MediCity in Nottingham and now Scotland.
BioCity and MediCity now house over 200 companies. There is a 91% survival rate over 13 years of companies at BioCity Nottingham. BioCity Group has created a suite of accelerator programmes and activities to ensure the ongoing creation and success of companies in the sector.

The goal of the programmes is to increase the number and quality of start-ups being created in the sector and provide a pipeline of new tenants and investment opportunities for BioCity Group.
