Four companies are the latest to move into Portsmouth Technopole, a 20,000 sq ft serviced business centre which helps occupiers develop and grow and is run by Oxford Innovation on behalf of the building’s owner, the University of Portsmouth. Portsmouth Technopole is utilised by 36 companies and organisations and 23 virtual customers, with up to 350 people on site.
Robin Sheppard, centre manager, said: “All four new occupiers share the same ambitions to grow as other firms on site and they will be able to benefit from our in-house business coaching services.
“Portsmouth Technopole is a thriving community of big thinkers, game changers and award winners, where occupiers benefit from access to business growth expertise from both the University of Portsmouth and Oxford Innovation in the form of knowledge transfers, internships in a range of disciplines and business consultancy projects.”
The centre provides support to occupiers through collaboration with the University of Portsmouth and regular interaction with its Innovation Director, Richard May. This advisory service is provided to all occupiers at no additional cost.
Occupiers include award-winning Transalis, the digital supply chain specialist helping thousands of companies trade electronically, Bladez Toyz Plc, founded by radio-control toys entrepreneur Iain Morgan, and QiConnect, the UK’s first wireless charging expert for smartphones.
