Incubators: Designed for Deep Tech

The home of innovative science & engineering companies

Backed by the University of Bristol and Research England, our two central Bristol incubators, Unit DX and Unit DY offer 45,000 sq ft of laboratory, office and event space for deep tech start-ups. Designed, built and run by our specialist inhouse team.

Our incubators take no equity.

We are deeply connected with the University of Bristol, supporting their world-class talent to take the next step into deep tech entrepreneurship. The University’s state of the art instrumentation, analytical services and expertise are all within walking distance.

We created Unit DX after discovering that there was no home for science companies in the city. Since opening in 2017, the building has become a hub of science and engineering entrepreneurship and is now bursting at the seams. Our second location, Unit DY, is on track for opening in 2021 and will have double the floor space at Unit DX, allowing room for the city’s deep tech companies to grow.

Our incubators combine purpose-built laboratories, flexible offices, events space and cutting-edge instrumentation, designed, developed and run by our specialist in-house team who work with our member companies and network to provide mentoring, expertise and the resources needed for scientific innovation and business development.
