St John's Innovation Centre was established by St John's College, part of the University of Cambridge, in 1987 to provide early-stage, knowledge-based companies with business advice, strategic consultancy, introductions and flexible accommodation. It was the first innovation centre of its kind in Europe and has become world-renowned for its success as a business incubator. The Centre is located at the heart of the Greater Cambridge technology cluster, in which it plays a pivotal role.
The philosophy of the Innovation Centre is to provide security and flexibility to tenants, and the Centre therefore offers an easy-in, easy-out policy with renewable leases for three years and the option to break on one month's notice.
St John's Innovation Centre exists to provide a dynamic and supportive incubation environment to accelerate the growth of ambitious innovative firms in the Cambridge region. It is privately owned and commercially managed.
The national Government-backed GrowthAccelerator has had an impressive first year since it was launched in May 2012 to support businesses looking to double their turnover in the next 3 years.
We offer a wide range of highly effective training programmes, all designed to help you grow your business and improve the performance of your people and your teams.
St John’s Innovation Centre is now accepting applications for the Pitchfest 2019 Spring cohort of ambitious companies with innovative products and services who have the potential to scale or who are already scaling and are looking to raise between £100k – £1m.
