Co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Greentech Access to Innovation (A2i) is a free programme created to help business start-ups and SMEs to develop innovative ideas into new low carbon products and services.
A2i is able to combine the academic knowledge housed within London South Bank University (LSBU) with the real-world experience of our industry partners, the result is a comprehensive level of knowledge and experience ready to be passed on to participants via our spectrum of workshops and consultancy.
All participants will have an initial diagnostic meeting with the A2i team to discuss their business needs and to create a bespoke programme structure; from workshops to facilities, 1-2-1 consultancy to focus groups, we will ensure that every participant maximises their time on the programme. With regular reviews throughout, we will make certain that participants are on track to meet their goals, as well as having the option to amend their journey to meet their changing business needs.
LSBU houses a variety of state-of-the-art facilities at its Southwark campus. Participants of A2i will have free, supervised access to these facilities. Signposting to relevant equipment will be carried out at the initial diagnostic meeting, but a list of some of our equipment can be found below.
