The Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) has announced the launch of a new Enterprise Hub to support engineering and technology entrepreneurs in Wales.
Enterprise Hub Wales will help to grow the existing research and enterprise infrastructure in the country, fostering startups, scaleups and deep tech innovation, supporting job creation and collaborating with other organisations operating in Wales.
It builds on the regional success of the Academy’s Enterprise Hub in Northern Ireland and a decade of successful support to UK engineering entrepreneurs by the Academy’s original Enterprise Hub founded in 2013.
Senior Business Development Manager Mike McMahon will lead the initiative to champion ambitious engineering entrepreneurs in Wales and support them to reach their potential. He said:
“We’re incredibly excited to launch the new Enterprise Hub Wales to invest in entrepreneurship around the country and support diverse engineering innovations. I look forward to growing the Royal Academy of Engineering’s community of entrepreneurs and working with other organisations within the engineering and technology ecosystem across Wales.”
