We have an outstanding track record of success in incubating and accelerating high growth SMEs through our network of Innovation Centres, the provision of specialist coaching services and funding through our well-established investor networks.

Driving Innovation since 1987

Martin and Audrey Wood, inspired by the challenges faced by entrepreneurs, set up The Oxford Trust, a charity which continues to support enterprises and through which Oxford Innovation was born in 1987.

Over the past 30 years, we have supported over 10,000 SMEs to become sustainable businesses, creating high value jobs, innovative products and services and as a result, enhanced local economies.

Scale-up Stars of the Future – Business Competition

To celebrate this special milestone we are running a national competition, Scale-up Stars of the Future, to identify the next generation of exciting growth businesses. The competition is open to any UK-registered SME requiring business support to help achieve their high-growth ambitions.
