Are you working on an early-stage medical innovation with high potential?

Would it help to come and work alongside world-class Oxford medical researchers? (you do not need to have an existing Oxford connection)

If so, you may want to apply for space in the Oxford BioEscalator.

We have designed the space in the BioEscalator to suit small and growing companies. You can mix and match the space you need and change it as your company grows.

The BioEscalator is a community of scientists and entrepreneurs who are dedicated to taking ideas forward towards clinical application

BioEscalator Hub

With any rental at the BioEscalator you gain access to our Hub on the ground floor.

This is a space where you can meet informally, socialise and relax with complementary coffee and tea. You can also hire this space for small events or rent a hotdesk in the corner for as little as half a day.

Contact us to discuss your needs and make an application for space.

Soak up the entrepreneurial buzz of the BioEscalator Hub

Suitable for an entrepreneur just starting up, a visitor, a service company working with tenants, or just a useful extra desk.

Computer connection, high speed internet, reception facilities, access to help from BioEscalator staff, lockable cupboard all provided.

Hire by the half day or the month.

We have 3 meeting rooms, which can be joined together to hold a Board Meeting of up to 22 people or a small seminar style meeting for up to 40 people.

These are available preferentially to tenants, but also to others working in medical innovation.

The Hub space can also be rented for small events and seminars.

We are building a community of entrepreneurial, collaborative people who will help us to achieve our vision of moving more innovation from the labs towards the clinic.
