Innovation feature: Brunel’s original incubation platform (2)

Brunel’s original station at Temple Meads, dating back to 1839

...With some active encouragement from our host University, we procured a completely new location – Brunel’s original station, dating back to 1839, at Temple Meads. Twenty minutes’ walk, taxi or bus-ride from the university precinct and in one of the most deprived and ethnically diverse wards in the country, this marked a bold, risky and less than obvious departure.

We knew that, even being within a masterpiece of the great British innovator, Brunel, and on one of the UK’s best connected transport hubs, we had to do more than just create nice office space for the incubator.
