COVID-19: ADVICE FOR STaff, STUDENTS AND COMMUNITY
Startup Facilities

Supporting Startups

Startup Facilities

For our entrepreneurs we have created a network of creative working spaces where startups, mentors and clients can collaborate, access resources and be inspired to innovate.

Entrepreneurs are often found setting up in their bedroom or parents’ garage and while this shows resourcefulness – it can be lonely and difficult to focus. We have worked to create innovative spaces which encourage collaboration and give teams access to resources which will enhance their development.

RGU Innovation Station at our Garthdee Campus

For our students and staff, our combined co-working and training space on the university campus is a creative area to develop your innovative thinking. The space is regularly used for skills workshops, accelerator sessions, co-working and meetings.
