We have open residencies commencing June 1st (or later based on your circumstances) and running up to six months. This offers individuals or groups at the earliest stages of business a studio/office space with full access to the suit of OpenCell lab/workshop facilities.
This is a great way to start a venture, expand an idea or create a charitable programme. We have seen so many people leave university with a great seed of an idea but without the infrastructure to test it. This is a place for you to test.
OpenCell takes no equity, IP or any other claim to your business. However, we are a community and we do expect the open resident (or residents) to contribute at least 5 days per month to community activities. This can be in different forms but it will require meaningful engagement. Examples could include (but are not limited to) outreach events, workshops, training, sourcing equipment, maintenance of tools etc.
We are open minded and would like to hear diverse ideas!
