News from Innovation Space

The clocks have changed and depressingly it’s dark by 5pm. However, that’s not the only change at Innovation Space in recent weeks. We’ve sadly had to say goodbye to our Innovation Space Manager – Andy Mew, who has run away to the other side of the world and moved to New Zealand. We of course wish him the best of luck with his new adventure and know all members and staff will miss him.

Filling Andy’s shoes is the new Interim Manager of Innovation Space, Sohaila Hosseini. Many of you will know Sohaila from her three years working as Innovation Space Officer, she is now very excited to be stepping up to work with all of our partners in Innovation Space.


Sohaila’s change of role has left us with yet another gap, so to work alongside the team we’ve welcomed Tasleem Bungshy to the team. Tas has a masters in digital marketing and previously worked for Student Housing, so she knows the university and the business world very well and has already brought new ideas to our little family.



We have also recently made some changes to make Innovation Space a little more welcoming.. We’ve introduced our new members library on the third floor, next to the comfy seats, for all those bookworms who want to take a break during the working day

Our new phone/Skype room has also been set up, perfectly formed for last minute meetings and a fantastic use of space for small businesses and their operational needs. This was a fab suggestion by our wonderful members so thank you all those who raised it as an idea.
