Join ideaSpace and get the support you need as you grow

Membership is available at our offices in central Cambridge, University’s West Cambridge site and on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. Members at both sites have access to our community hub which includes office, meeting space and social spaces.

ideaSpace uses its flexible workspace to provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which its members can share knowledge and experience as they develop their business models, create concepts and build their team.

Different membership packages give you and your team flexible access to ideaSpace

As a start-up founder, you can apply for ideaSpace membership. You can choose between drop-in or full-time membership packages for yourself and for any employees you might have.

Drop-in members are guaranteed a place to work once a week and are always welcome to call in and see if space is available. Full-time members can choose to work from the same place or try a different one every day – whatever suits them best.

These different membership options give you maximum flexibility as your business needs change. For example, you might choose drop-in membership for yourself and full-time membership for your team. As the business grows you can add new employees and switch between packages to achieve the optimal level of support.

How to apply

Send us an email saying why you would like to become a member and describing how you fit our profile. Our Community Manager will review your application in the first instance. You may subsequently be invited to an interview with our Director.

If you pass the interview, you will be invited to choose which of our two packages and locations is best for you and for any team members you might have.
