Mr Rhys Pearce-Palmer
Innovation Operations Manager
- Welsh speaking
I manage two business incubation spaces at Cardiff University:
Cardiff Innovations@sbarc offers stunning offices, laboratories, and co-working spaces for start-ups, spin-out, and SMEs. The incubator is part of a holistic building community within sbarc/spark which includes Cardiff University’s Social Science Research Park (SPARK) and Remaker Space.
Cardiff Medicentre is a business incubator supporting companies involved in biotech and life sciences, located at Heath Park alongside the University Hospital of Wales. The Medicentre provides a physical hub which underpins the University’s clinical innovation agenda and represents a joint venture between Cardiff University and Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.
My team and I curate businesses development opportunities for tenants such as networking, collaboration, and peer mentoring, as well ensuring we deliver value from Cardiff’s membership of the SETsquared enterprise partnership, a globally leading brand with a range of leading-edge programmes available to students and staff.
