Wondering whether The Studio community is the place for you?

The Studio is focused on supporting and fostering scalable startups and those engaging with technology to reimagine business, products, services, IOT or hardware. This creates a vibrant community that allows you to share, and attract, things that just wouldn't be possible alone.

We're working towards launching a HUB/ focused co-working space that will be home to startups at different stages. A mix of anchor companies, later stage startups and "seed to sapling" startups, strengthens and builds the community.
