For the bright sparks of biotech startups

BioTech startups are inimitable with specific needs, priorities (and quirks) that generic business incubators and science parks just can’t meet. Enter BioCity.

BioCity campuses are designed with BioTech startups in-mind.

Whilst the workshop and office space of MediCity is the perfect home for MedTechs, at BioCity, BioTech startups find everything they need under one roof.

Easy-in, easy-out lab rental

Take on new projects and new people, not the risk of lengthy leases with lab space to rent with just 1 months’ notice.

Work with the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and scale back with just 3 months’ notice.

Learn from the best and connect with the community.

Industry perks

The cluster effect of BioCity attracts benefits and opportunities not typically available to BioTech startups. Invitation-only pitching competitions, investment opportunity roundups, unique collaborations and trade visits are regular features for BioCity based BioTech startups.
