Business support

The Oxford Trust’s two innovation centres are more than just a place to work.

Together with Oxford Innovation Space, our centres’ operator, we work to help businesses thrive and grow.

That’s why all companies based in our Centres are eligible for business support.

Meet Innovation Director, Wendy Tindsley

Business support comes via our Innovation Director, Wendy Tindsley, who is part of the Oxford Innovation Space team.

Wendy offers businesses 1:1 support and coaching to set goals and overcome challenges, such as fundraising, finding new markets and scaling up. Networked with many stakeholders and partners across Oxfordshire, she can also make connections – whether it’s with other businesses, clients or linking to opportunities. In addition, Wendy can help start-ups increase their knowledge and up-skill to ensure they have the right skills at the right time to expand and grow. And, lastly, she creates communities of like-minded businesses that can help each other and collaborate where relevant.
