Edinburgh Business School is inviting start-ups and small businesses to apply for a year’s free space in fully equipped offices from January 2019.
This is the second intake for its incubator scheme which also provides access to workshops and expert advice. Opened last July by the Duke of York, the Incubator currently hosts nine businesses.
Kallum Russell, who co-ordinates the Business Incubator at EBS, said: “We welcome any industry sector, including social and charity-based enterprises at any stage of a start-up, from proof of concept, to early trading.
Professor Laura Galloway, professor of Business and Enterprise at Edinburgh Business School, said: “We are very excited to open applications for the second cohort.
“We are proud of the fact our Incubator is open to all, and businesses we host include Heriot-Watt University alumni, as well as businesses new to the University.
“The range of talent in the first cohort is very impressive and we look forward to welcoming new businesses, as we expand and increase the number of spaces available in our Business Incubator.”
Applicants should submit their request by 30 November.
