“We are driving innovation in health by building a new £41m Health Innovation Campus. A project of international importance that aims to transform the way health services are designed and delivered. As we build the physical space, we are also working with Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) based in Lancashire. We are supporting businesses, charities, and social enterprises to develop health ideas into innovative products and services.” Watch the video: https://youtu.be/vUdfLhite5E

“I’d been a student at Lancaster, and I’d also worked as lead developer in their Innovation Hub, looking at emergent technologies and developing student ideas. Later, when two friends approached me with the idea for a company that helped people to sleep better – with me doing the technical side – it was an ex-colleague at the University who told me about this project to help businesses produce prototypes.”
