Cambridge, UK, 3 May 2022: We are pleased to announce that o2h co-work labs has acquired the 40,000 sq ft Hauxton Meadows land in Cambridge, UK with plans to develop state-of-the art coworking lab spaces for life scientists and biotech entrepreneurs in the region. The Hauxton Meadows land was previously part of the Bayer crop sciences development.
The site is located adjacent to the recently developed Mill SciTech Park where the o2h co-work labs is creating one of the region’s most exciting communities of entrepreneurs in life sciences, technology and green innovation.
The new science park will have boutique lab spaces specifically designed to cater to the needs of early-stage biotechs and will be available to entrepreneurs in what is designed to be a highly stimulating, collaborative and innovative culture. The site will be a key part of the o2h group ecosystem in which we enable and nurture great science and technology companies to flourish. This will also play a key role in the Cambridge eco-system for nurturing world class life science companies creating a wide range of employment opportunities.
Prashant Shah, CEO, o2h co work labs, General Partner of o2h Ventures, and the Co-founder of o2h group, said:
“Our vision in the o2h group is to seed new ideas and we are more than excited to play our part in the continuing evolution of Cambridge as a world leader in innovation. With the acquisition of the Hauxton Meadows site we hope to be able to significantly extend our Cambridge based wet-lab life science and tech capabilities as well as build upon our 2.7 acre footprint of the Mill Scitech Park.
We have recently carried out a boutique renovation of the old mill house into hauxton house and are deeply committed to building a buzzing and creative community of entrepreneurs, academia, venture capitalists, government and big pharma/tech connecting the USA-UK and India regions.”
