A diverse, enterprising & supportive coworking community based at exeter science park
Canopy Exeter: Build meaningful relationships. Break into the global economy.
In the spring of 2016, Canopy launched at Exeter Science Park, the knowledge-based enterprise hub in Southwest England, to help local start-up companies get off the ground and grow. The launch coincided with a visit from two tech start-ups from Boston, America, looking for opportunities to expand their own businesses in Devon.
The launch of the tech incubator initiative came as a recent Tech Nation Report identified 161% employment growth in the tech sector in the wider Exeter area during 2011-2014. The Canopy team believes there is enormous potential to build an Exeter-based technology start-up network--creating more jobs and driving the economy.
Gerry Shattock, general manager of the Exeter Science Park, said: "Tech start-ups are integral to science-based innovation in Exeter today, where we are seeing increasing numbers of cross-sectoral collaborations enabled by very talented tech developers...The Canopy initiative will substantially accelerate this growth."
