How we can help your business
Whether you’re a start-up, small business or a multinational, taking your organisation to the next level is hard work. But whatever the challenges or opportunities that lie ahead for your business, we can help.
Overcoming business challenges
We can offer in-depth expertise and analysis of any aspect of your industry and deliver concrete solutions for your business challenges. Our laboratory and field facilities can help you test, research and develop new ideas as well.
Collaboration is central to everything we do. That's particularly true of our business services. You can also benefit from our knowledge and experience by entering an educational partnership with us.
Coworking, office space, and business support
Innovation Connect offers a variety of desk and office space options in Portsmouth, as well as the opportunity to get advice and support on growing your business.
Our business centres in Portsmouth include Cell Block Studios in the Historic Dockyard, Halpern House in the city centre, Portsmouth Technopole at the entrance to the city, and the University's Future Technology Centre.
Innovation Connect provides the opportunity to network with other local businesses, attend an expanding programme of free events and have easy access to selected University resources.
The office is such a lovely environment to be in and a world away from me perching my laptop on a small table at Starbucks. My enthusiasm for Innovation Connect is endless. It's helped me immensely to put a pipeline dream into a reality. It’s a nourishing and inspiring hub where I've experienced incredible productivity.
Developing skills and growing your network
Our degree apprenticeships, CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and work-based Learning at Work programmes can help you develop your employees’ skills. We can help you attract new funding, find new recruits, and grow your network too.
