We scale start-ups.

It is as simple as that.

An Energetic Welcome Week!

09/11/18 This week we welcomed our new cohort of scale-ups based around energy, urban solutions, customer experience and connected technologies. These scale-ups are creating alternative personal transport solutions in cities, a digital solution that provides rapid legal advice for businesses, solutions that make existing dumb buildings smart, and software that understands human behaviour across cities.
