Innovation spaces

Scotland has more tech hubs per capita than many other countries in the world. Incubators, accelerators and collaboration spaces are available across the country.

Incubators and Accelerators

There are many incubators across the country offering spaces and support. Some offer spaces and great networking facilities, others offer incredible level of supports and growth programmes. Most of them are generalist but we also have fintech specific spaces:

Collaboration places

Universities are creating collaboration places bringing together the power of Academia research, creativity of start-ups and expertise of large institutions. 2 Major collaboration places are emerging.

In Glasgow the Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) at Strathclyde University has been running for several months now and is planning on expanding further including a new fintech hub.

In Edinburgh, the Edinburgh Futures Institute (EFI) is still in development but will offer a world class innovation and collaboration space. Supported by the City region Deal and the Data Driven Innovation programme, EFI will include fintech as one of its three focus sectors.
