Introducing Arise Harlow

We’re proud to announce the opening of our latest innovation hub, Arise.

Situated on the Harlow Science Park, in Essex, the new Arise building features everything a new business needs: light-filled office space, break out spaces, meeting rooms and access to a network of like-minded highly-innovative entrepreneurs.

At Arise we want to support businesses and turn them into something great. Our mix of student talent, academic expertise, business and innovation support means we’re perfectly placed to do so.

With great rail and road links to London and the East of England, Harlow is a premium business location that is already home to large organisations such as Raytheon and Arrow, and with the relocation of Public Health England to the town, there is a unique opportunity for innovation.
