Welcome to your Innovation Catalyst

Collaboration is the catalyst for innovation – and we have created a physical centre where conditions are ripe for it to thrive here at Thames Valley Science Park (TVSP).  We are pulling together businesses, investors, entrepreneurs, research organisations, start-ups and emerging talent to shape and scale the next generation of Reading and Thames Valley tech businesses.

Desks with a difference

If you are looking for more than a desk and wi-fi, then Innovation Catalyst at Thames Valley Science Park is the place to be. Our supportive, flexible approach makes this the place to be if you are a new, early stage or small businesses looking to learn, develop and grow. Here you'll be part of a wider community of innovation with access to expertise and sources of funding, and free workshops and business briefings. Arrange a visit today and discover what we can do to help your business thrive. Please reach out to either Clare or Susan.
