MediaCityUK technology and enterprise hub The Landing has launched a pay-as-you-go, co-working space called Launch.

It will offer technology businesses workspace and the use of testing labs, workshops and development studios as well as access to a network of experts from £199 per month.

The Landing head of programmes and partnerships Maya Dibley said: “Launch at The Landing offers easy, on-demand access to the type of kit, labs and connectivity needed to test and refine great product ideas and push them forward commercially.

“To ensure we got Launch right, and to create space that would drive deals as well as spark innovation, we talked to a wide array of tech entrepreneurs and investors both locally and internationally to gauge what businesses really need to get to the next stage of growth.

“We found that accessing a network of potential angel investors, having a consultation with an IP lawyer, experimenting with a 3D-printed prototype, or being able to test a customer journey in a professional UX environment, were the practical kind of offerings that appealed most to companies serious about growth.”
