About us

BioCity is an ambitious business incubator supporting the growth of ambitious life-science businesses, so we ‘get it’. We understand that entrepreneurs are not ‘an Everyman’, they work with a determination, a drive, an endless energy and commitment to turn a great idea into reality.

 

BioCity was founded in 2002 when the concept of a business incubator offering 360° support within a self-contained campus was unheard of. But a small team of dedicated people fought hard to turn that great idea into reality, a reality now replicated throughout the UK. But we’re not finished yet.

 

Not limited to the standard ‘business incubator’ model, the ever-growing team at BioCity work tirelessly for the companies who call us home and the industry we are proud to be a part of.

 

A private limited company, BioCity was founded by the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University who are each part owners of the business.

More than the ‘typical’ business incubator

 

An eye to the future

The BioCity business accelerator programme gives an initial leg-up to the next generation of entrepreneurs. Hosted at all BioCity business incubators, participants come with the SPARK of an idea and discover how their great idea can become a reality, DEVELOP those ideas into robust models and LAUNCH new businesses.

 

Our companies come first

The BioCity name continually attracts investment, collaboration, media and PR opportunities, opportunities we use to promote the companies who choose to call us home. Seen us on national BBC news recently? No, but you will have seen our companies, because we ensure the businesses who choose to call us home remain at the forefront.
