About Launch Space

European Regional Development Fund logo Located in the new £16m University Enterprise Zone on Frenchay Campus, Launch Space provides physical incubator space and enterprise support for graduate start-up businesses.

It’s part of a wider entrepreneurial community, housing the Future Space incubation facility and the Bristol Robotics Laboratory – making it a great environment for graduate start-ups to flourish.

We’re currently hosting a range of graduate-led, innovative and high-tech businesses at various stages on the start-up journey – so if you join us, you'll be working alongside other graduate entrepreneurs.

If you’ve graduated from any UK university in the last three years and have a business idea you would like to put into action, Launch Space can help you do just that. We’ll give you free desk space and business support for 12 months so you can focus on achieving great things.

How is Launch Space funded?

The University has been allocated around £2,000,000 of funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) Growth Programme 2014–2020.

Established by the European Union, the ERDF helps local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects that support innovation, businesses, job creation and local community regeneration.

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) is the Managing Authority for the Launch Space programme.
