Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

The Royal Academy of Engineering has opened the Taylor Centre, a new space that will underpin the growth of an increasingly vibrant and influential entrepreneurial community created by the Academy’s Enterprise Hub. It will help transform the UK’s best and brightest engineering technology entrepreneurs into the business leaders of tomorrow by providing a brand new place to network, work, and develop their skills.

Flexible meeting and workspaces are proving crucial to the growth of technology companies, the Taylor Centre will provide a professional space for entrepreneurs to develop their ideas, meet investors and potential customers, and take their work to the next stage.

“The UK is one of the best countries in the world at innovative research and technological development,” said Ana Avaliani, head of enterprise, Royal Academy of Engineering. “Through the Taylor Centre and our wider community, we are helping to turn such innovation into viable engineering technology businesses, supporting UK entrepreneurship in uncertain times.”

Since its inception in 2013, the Enterprise Hub has helped 61 members get their businesses off the ground, generating 150 jobs in the process, and its members have raised over £30m total in follow-on funding and investment for their technologies.
