The MTC’s Business Launch Centre is a hub of innovation, set up to support start-ups and bring ideas to market. This unique technology and manufacturing incubation centre provides up-and-coming entrepreneurs with the expertise, tools and space to develop their product in a de-risked environment.

We support start-ups across three stages:

Working with us can provide unique access to the MTC and our community. 

Investment Support

Via the MTC community, we have excellent relationships with a range of willing investors, plus the capability of establishing investment relationships to progress your product development.
  • Innovate UK - Through our links, you have the opportunity to access government REACH funding on a ‘matched’ basis. REACH funding is provided without condition to all successful applications.
  • Private Equity and Business Angels - By establishing relationships with private investors, we can marry investors with your product idea at early TRL stages.
  • Venture Capitalists - We can link you with approved venture capitalists, who may look to invest as your product idea matures or reaches full commercialisation.
