    For 3 out of the 4 campuses in Brightlands: the medical, the materials and the smart services campus, we fit into each of them perfectly. It's almost like this ecosystem is designed for us. We haven't found something like this anywhere else in the world, where all of these 3 fields exist together, in collaboration so close to each other.

    More than anything else, the program helped drill into me the ability to truly stand in the shoes of my customers as real, breathing human beings, rather than some abstract stereotypes.

    After spending a day with the Brightlands community it was clear to me that this isn’t your regular incubator. The vibrant atmosphere led to inspiring interactions and everyone was positively energised. A perfect catalyst for startups that want to field test their ideas into the market.
