Being a member of the University of Hertfordshire’s Business Incubator gives you access to hundreds of academic experts and their evolving research, as well as seminars, mentors, networking events, business directories and marketing through our website.

Business incubation is an open-working concept. Rather than being tied down to the same desk, staring at the same four walls, you can work in any of our fantastic contemporary open spaces on either of our two campuses. You’ll have the flexibility to come and go as you please and move around or network in a vibrant environment.
We believe a better business evolves through the combined accomplishments of creative, committed and compassionate individuals focused on a common purpose.
The Business Incubator offers you a unique ecosystem of resources, inspiration and collaboration opportunities to grow your venture.
Community of practice cannot happen in isolation. It requires collective action in order to shape each other’s businesses and tackle the problems that all small businesses face.
