Business Innovation Zone - BIZ

Image of students in discussion

The University is keen to encourage students and new graduates to develop as entrepreneurs and support small business to start up. The Business Innovation Zone provides business incubation space and easy access to the on campus Business Gateway which provides start- up businesses with guidance and support, including one-to-one advice and free workshops and seminars.

Graduate Start Up Company – Raw Film Productions
One of the first fledgling companies to be supported by QMU's Business Innovation Zone is Raw Film Productions. Run by the creative partnership of BAFTA winning filmmakers and QMU media graduates, Agata Jagodzinska and Michael Grant, they are a corporate video and documentary production company.

Agata said about leasing the space in the Business Innovation Zone:
It’s really tough to get a new company up and running in the current climate. To be provided with start-up space at the University helps to provide a solid base for us to develop our business. It relieves the pressure and allows us to concentrate on developing new leads and securing contracts for our new company. It is providing us with a tremendous start to our careers and we couldn’t be more grateful for the support.
