THE TEAM

The Team - Wilton Centre

Our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to supporting and nurturing companies big or small on our parks. We also seek to strengthen each park’s links to the local community and universities.

Our team at the Wilton Centre has the benefit of being able to leverage the knowledge, expertise, and connections of a nationwide team of experienced professionals who are all dedicated to supporting UK innovation and providing the best possible experience to occupiers on our parks.

Additionally, the investors behind the Knowledge Factory are able to provide funding to innovative businesses based at the Wilton Centre.

Our technical team can support you with:

  • lab design,
  • health and safety
  • laboratory and manufacturing operations
  • pilot plant and scale-up facilty design

Our support team can help you with:

  • business planning
  • grant sourcing and seed capital
  • identifying funders and investors

Our partners also help with other areas, such as IP, recruitment, M&A, funding, and more.

As part of the Knowledge Factory network, Wilton Centre benefits from connections to early stage investors. When ready, we can provide investment and funding to innovative companies based on our parks that have an established proof of concept and require scale-up funding.

The Wilton Centre team is incredibly supportive, and I think it would have been a very different picture without them. Even though we’ve been at the site for over a year, we still find ourselves asking for advice, and there’s no hesitation from the team – the support has been fantastic.
