What we do

Fly - Helping graduates to launch their business and watch it fly

Hi! As the University's Incubator Manager, I give graduates the best possible environment to launch their business and watch it fly through our Studio programme.

With a tailored mentoring and support package, plus an office space in a vibrant incubator with plenty of peer support, we aim to help you to maximise your business success.

LU Inc. - the University’s incubator - is based in the Holywell Building on the University's Science and Enterprise Park (LUSEP) which is located on the West side of the Loughborough campus.

It brings together the University’s academic and graduate entrepreneurs with founders from across the region and beyond to create a rich, vibrant and supportive start-up community.

Being based at LUSEP enables our graduates to connect with a dynamic innovation community made up of more than 80 businesses spanning tech start-ups and international businesses. It also means that our graduate businesses can engage widely with Loughborough's research expertise and potential graduate employees.
