We also have money to invest in the companies on our programmes, from very early stage convertible loans, to help develop the business, to the equity investment you need to take off.
At BioCity and MediCity, we house over 200 companies across our 4 locations. Over 12 years at BioCity Nottingham, 91% of these businesses have survived. BioCity has made a 6.7x return on its investments to date and is an international leader for entrepreneurial activity in the life sciences and healthcare sector.
The programmes to date have supported university spin outs, technology inventors, industrial scientists and students as well as existing companies launching new products and services or changing their core strategy. The programmes are designed to support people irrespective of the stage of development of their business or whether they are exploring the opportunity on a full or part time basis.
There are three stages to The Programme (SPARK, DEVELOP and LAUNCH) ; winners can secure free accommodation and one to one coaching at one of our sites and investment can be made available to the most deserving opportunities.
