Oxford Centre for Innovation (OCFI)

The Oxford Centre for Innovation (OCFI) is managed by Oxford Innovation on behalf of the Trust, as part of our mission to support the innovation landscape in our region. See below the interviews we’ve done with some of the exciting businesses working out of OCFI.

We know that many science and technology start-ups struggle to find affordable office space within Oxford city centre. What they need is a location that is close to the Oxford University science campus and transport links, that provides space for work and meetings, all within a restricted budget.

OCFI is located just five minutes from Oxford rail and coach stations and offers the perfect office solution for start-up and growing companies who have limited resources. It provides affordable offices, flexible office space, conference facilities and a range of support services.

Oxford Centre for Innovation is part of a network of centres managed by Oxford Innovation, the UK’s leading operator of innovation centres. For further information about office space at OCFI, contact Margaret Hewitt: [email protected] or visit pod.ocfi.co.uk or call the Oxford Innovation team on 01865 261400.
