An inclusive and sustainable business hub has opened in Slough.

The Plus X Innovation Hub, a collaborative workspace for businesses, has launched at The Future Works office building in Slough.

It brings together a combination of coworking, offices, and a state-of-the-art workshop and photography studio.

Members will also have access to business support programmes. 

Developed in partnership with property investment management company AshbyCapital, the three-storey space boasts over £300,000 worth of specialist equipment.

The space hopes to host regular networking events and support clinics.

Mat Hunter, Co-CEO of Plus X Innovation said: "There is clearly an extraordinary growth mindset in Slough and we want our hub to help innovative businesses to be part of this.

“Its demographic and geographic advantages make Slough a great place for us to open our latest Plus X Innovation hub."

At the launch event on Tuesday, November 28 the winner of the Plus X Innovation Trailblazer competition was announced after four local entrepreneurs provided business pitches.

Kashish Agarwal won the competition and £2,000 to spend at Plus X Innovation for his Cricket AI product to help players choose the perfect bat for their individual swing. 

He said: "I want to use the prize money to develop the prototype in the hub’s workshop to take it to the mass market, and will also use the media suite to build a campaign introducing this product to the world."
