Of the total, over 72% has been in companies with a focus on cell and gene technologies.

Attraction of national and international funders

SBC has relationships with many investors, and the rapid growth of companies at SBC has drawn numerous national and international funders to invest in occupiers. 

Mentoring

Campus CEO and operations groups

An opportunity for peer-to-peer mentoring groups for CEOs or office managers to meet in an informal setting to share experiences and advice.

SBC consultants' group

Occupier companies can connect with experts who offer insights, support and guidance, acting as a 'critical friend' along the various stages of the therapeutics development pipeline. 

Networking

GSK Fellows 

GSK Fellows are matched with individual companies to provide scientific and business advice on a non-confidential basis

Occupier network

Regular informal events are held to support the community and encourage greater interaction and collaboration between employees based at the campus.  These include a summer BBQ and Christmas quiz plus occupier lunches featuring company pitches and free pizza!
