Happy New Year! Ours has got off to a great start, one which included a trip to the Research Park at the University of Birmingham. M.D. John Baldwin and Ops Director Andy Taylor met with members of the business services team; Kate Jermey the Business Engagement Manager and David Coleman, Head of Spinout Portfolio to discuss possible collaborations.
The meeting provided useful discussion on many subjects from how Oneflow could provide its manufacturing services to emerging start up companies through to Oneflow employing Birmingham graduates and undergraduates and making use of the Universities academia. The visit also included a tour of the BizzInn Incubation Hub and a chance to see the work on the new £7m Biomedical Innovation Hub. John Baldwin commented that "business if often scared of engaging with universities, yet here is a great resource that can help businesses of all sizes in all manner of areas. The team and facilities at Birmingham are helping to bring these two entities together and provide real opportunity for growth."
