Hampshire based Innovation Centre launches space company
BASE Bordon Innovation Centre (managed by Oxford Innovation) in East Hampshire is celebrating their biggest member success story moving out of their 31 office facility.
In-Space Missions was the first company to move into the building in 2017 with a team of two. Now they are flying into new premises with a team of 25 full time scientists, engineers and support staff.
BASE Bordon Centre Manager, Duncan Gill, said:
“For many facilities seeing their biggest client leave would be a sad day but for us it is a sign of a job well done. Our ethos is to be a community where small businesses can grow in a nurturing and supportive environment. We have an onsite Innovation Director who is here to ensure our ‘tenants’ have access to business support and funding opportunities.
“Our centre is also a state of the art office facility which gives small businesses a base they can be proud of. There is a business lounge for meetings and networking, a video enabled board room and full reception support. All a business needs to do is move in and the rest is taken care of. We are so excited for In-Space Missions and what the future will bring them as they start the next part of their adventure in Alton.
“We are looking forward to welcoming new businesses into our community and watching them thrive and grow.”
Tony Holt, Director and CTO at In-Space Missions, said:
“BASE Bordon Innovation Centre has played a huge part in the success of In-Space. We found them at the completely right time in our business journey and their support has allowed us to focus on what we do best, building and launching satellites, knowing that we had a flexible, affordable and nurturing space to call home.
“We have been given the flexibility to grow and create custom-made spaces within the centre which has meant we could service our customers requirements in a far more efficient and speedy manner. As we move on from the centre we hope that more new companies especially within the STEM industry will benefit from the community at Bordon.”
