Meetup seed funding

Engine Shed provides free venue hire to help new innovation-led meetups get off the ground, for the first two events.

New meetups – or network groups – that are supporting a new or existing innovation cluster – are welcome to use Engine Shed as their venue.

We will provide free use of our seminar space, The Junction, free of charge for the first two events and, if required, support refreshment costs.

This is to help build momentum of a new network with a view that it becomes self-sustaining, such as with sponsorship or with a free venue in one of the corporate spaces that are variously available in the area.

If you wish to seek support of your new Meetup or network, please email us at
