A thriving innovation hub for AgriTech companies

3,000SQM (30,000SQFT) innovation hub for AgriTech entrepreneurs and early stage startups to grow their emerging businesses

The innovation hub bridges the physical landscape of the ARC site and surrounding farmland to provide an inspiring spring-board for creation of new AgriTech solutions for the future.  It also aims to be an exemplar building demonstrating the latest thinking in sustainable technology and principles.

It provides the opportunity to create cross-pollination of ideas and people at the very heart of the ARC site, with:

  • Meeting rooms
  • Community space
  • Lab, workshop and crop trial space on-site
  • Scale up space available as part of ARC, without having to leave the AgriTech community and available facilities

Resident companies will have access to support services, funding and networking to help commercialise ideas through the AgriTech cluster locally and the Cambridge technology ecosystem.
