Opening up opportunities
It’s all very well working in your own space, but sometimes it’s helpful to think outside the box and exchange or discuss ideas with other people. Collaboration is made so much easier when there are opportunities literally on your doorstep. With knowledgeable like-minded people working all around you, networking at WCFI is easy.
When you become part of the Wood Centre for Innovation, you’ll gain lots of support you didn’t even know you needed. With our team well connected within Oxford’s science and technology sectors, you’ll have the kind of help you just won’t get anywhere else.
Wendy Tindsley, our in-house Innovation Director is on hand to give you advice and support. We understand what it takes to make a company successful. And we understand that you might not have all the know-how you need right now.
Wendy has many years of experience in providing practical business support for our tech community and can connect you with relevant sources of help and initiatives. We all have one common goal: to see your business thrive.
Meet the innovative businesses already part of our growing community.
