In partnership with The Oxford Trust, Barclays is launching a new Eagle Lab at our Wood Centre for Innovation (WCFI) at Stansfeld Park this spring.
Eagle Labs is a growing network of 25 incubator spaces across the UK. By cultivating a community of like-minded entrepreneurs through providing a collaborative work environment, access to their peers and opportunities to maximise growth, Eagle Labs are able to help start-ups grow at pace. Eagle Lab Oxford is focussed on science and tech start-ups aimed at supporting spinout scientists, university graduates and entrepreneurs. The science and tech focus is to help the UK define areas of real competitive advantage on the global stage through its emphasis on industries of the future.
The Eagle Lab at WCFI will provide space for up to 40 entrepreneurs while offering the use of onsite facilities, including 28 permanent and 12 hot desks. An Ecosystem Manager and a dedicated Lab Manager will provide technical expertise, mentoring and connections to help science and technology businesses flourish and will support residents using the space. Residents will also get access to the wider Eagle Lab support proposition. Barclays local business banking teams and specialist high-growth managers are also available to provide banking support to companies and entrepreneurs to help them maximise and accelerate their growth.
