MEET THE PEOPLE THAT COULD

Connect

Network without leaving the building.

We take the hard work out of finding new connections, with so many bright minds all in one place. 

Our informal coffee mornings and relaxed, open spaces mean building up your contact list is easier than you’d think. Whether you’re looking for advice, have something to share or just fancy a chat, there’s always somebody keen to listen just a few steps away.

As we're owned by The University of Portsmouth, there are no end of networking opportunities to take advantage of, and a wealth of expertise and support available to give your business the competitive edge.
