St John’s Innovation Centre provides early stage knowledge-based companies with tailored business services and flexible accommodation. It was the first innovation centre of its kind in Europe and has become widely known for its success as a business incubator offering experience, contacts, resources and a presence in the community. It is located at the heart of the Greater Cambridge technology cluster, in which it plays a pivotal role.
As a regional centre of excellence, St John’s Innovation Centre supports high growth businesses across the region and aims to provide the best strategic business advice, training and introductions for start-ups, micros and SMEs, particularly through the recent GrowthAccelerator programme and Understanding Finance for Business.
St John’s Innovation Centre is a new partner in the Enterprise Europe Network, designed to help businesses innovate, grow and succeed in the European marketplace through technology transfer or by finding new customers, suppliers or commercial partners.
The Centre is also currently delivering SJIC Training services via a combination of Leadership and Management training courses, bespoke training, masterclasses and workshops on topics relevant to growing businesses.
