Sussex Innovation is a business incubation network for entrepreneurs, start-ups, scale-ups and corporate innovators. Our members are ambitious companies who are innovators in their field – solving important problems in new ways. Since our foundation in 1996, we have helped over 600 businesses of all sizes, providing them with the strategic insight to achieve high growth, and the practical resources to manage that growth sustainably.
Sussex Innovation has been headquartered on campus at the University of Sussex since 1996. Our institution’s first off-campus hub, Sussex Innovation Croydon, opened in October 2015, with a third site due to open in Brighton city centre in 2019!
As of this year, Sussex Innovation hosts more than 150 member companies, spanning a range of sectors from the forefront of engineering and biomedical research to digital media and app development. From the original £2 million invested in the first Sussex Innovation Centre, we have gone on to support over £750M of cumulative revenues for businesses across the South of England.
Our support is bespoke to every company's needs. Many of our strategic support products are based around
• Raising ambition
