Testimonials

“The Innovation Agency has been located at Sci-Tech Daresbury since 2014.  The mix of businesses on the site and the excellent networking opportunities, supported by the site’s management staff, has given us access to potential customers and also businesses who can provide a support function for us.  Our accommodation has been flexible to allow us to grow our business.
The site is very well maintained and gives an excellent impression to visitors.  In addition, visitor parking is plentiful.  If we have any issues that need resolving the site management staff are quick to support us to ensure that our business runs smoothly.”

“We located the Department for International Trade’s North West team at Sci-Tech Daresbury because it’s a fantastically supportive environment for growing high quality businesses, showcasing the best of new UK ideas and capability.  The partnerships are all in place here, sparking exactly the sort of positive interactions that generate real trade.  We often bring staff from our Global network to see the facilities and meet the great exporters on site, and they’re always tremendously impressed with the whole Sci-Tech Daresbury experience.”

"Satsafe has spent 3 years developing our driver behaviour monitoring solution and recently, been selected by Merseyside Road Safety Partnership in a ground-breaking initiative designed to help older drivers to stay on the road safer for longer. We very much appreciate the practical assistance & support received from the Virtual Engineering & Hartree Centres at Sci-Tech Daresbury, which has been a major factor in helping us to develop and validate this important technology whilst helping us get to market."

“The campus provides us with everything we need to drive our business expansion plans forward, a vibrant community of motivated innovation companies combined with access to excellent networking opportunities has enabled us to ‘hit the ground running’. We have hosted many client and partner meetings either here in our office our via one of the meeting rooms or board room, we consistently receive feedback from visitors just how impressive the facilities are here at Sci-Tech Daresbury.”

“Sci-Tech Daresbury offered everything we needed and more in a way that was far superior to any of the other UK locations we researched.  The combination of location, facilities and helpful people gave us the flexibility to allow an enterprise like FLS to concentrate on what was important, growth. After nearly three years, our people and our customers have experienced what they sometimes describe as a sophisticated and professional location and we know that as we continue to grow (100% growth year on year so far), the services will be there for us whatever size we may become.”

“As a start up in the complicated world of Med Tech, the progress our company has made can be strongly linked to the connections and support received from Sci-Tech Daresbury and their business support team. The saying "It's not what you know, it's who you know..." certainly rings true. Very pleased I decided to set up base here.”

“Our company has been resident at Sci-Tech Daresbury for several years now. We are a very small company but being part of the Sci-Tech Daresbury community makes us feel like we are part of something much bigger and of course provides us with a prestige business address. We have benefited from a valuable grant which was only available to tenant companies.”

“Sci-Tech Daresbury’s facilities and support has been instrumental in getting our start up off the ground. We’re now looking at trialling our medical device (a nasogastric tube placement confirmation device) in several sites across the NW region. The links to local NHS partners provided by Sci-Tech Daresbury have helped raise the profile of our product with the user community. Prior to this, Sci-Tech Daresbury have provided support services to assist in the development of our product, such as Laboratory space and rapid prototyping facilities.”

“Being a small consultancy I benefit from the Sci-Tech Daresbury network which has helped me get access to useful advice on developing international markets and to build close links with some of the site’s Gold Partners: University of Liverpool and Slater Heelis, in particular. In addition, the site is modern and well connected making it a good place to host client meetings.”

“We are grateful and appreciate the provided business support, help in communication with public and private institutions as well as responsiveness."

“2007 was a lucky year for us. That year, we discovered Sci-Tech Daresbury, and the people that came with it. 12 years, many projects and one sold tech business later, I’m still at this amazing place, still attending the many “made-for-you” seminars and networking events, talking to universities, tapping into the brain bank and global contact base of the Gold Partners…not to mention the world-leading research facilities that are also on our doorsteps, and those all too precious funding packages…The support infrastructure is just fantastic and there is a collective passion here to make technology better. To us, Sci-Tech Daresbury is not a destination, it is a resource. “
