Access to support and skills
The early years for any business are difficult and the problems they face can be numerous and varied, which is why a supportive environment can significantly increase a company's chances of survival.
Each Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC) resident company is supported by one of our Business Development Managers who:
- Act as a link between businesses and LEC academics
- Facilitate joint research projects and ventures by identifying suitable partnerships, enabling businesses and academics to work side by side to develop new products and processes
- Identify and support new opportunities for academic/business engagement and technology transfer
Lancaster Environment Centre also sources support from a wide range of sources depending on the needs of each resident
