The Portsmouth Young Innovators Hub is a new and exciting centre powered by the Unloc Enterprise Academy. Its mission is to support and incubate young people running start up businesses, charities and community projects in Portsmouth. The centre has 8 hot desking spaces, a large collapsible conference room space and two meeting spaces as well as up to date technology including high spec computers and 3D printers.
All members of the hub are able to have full use of the phones, print off documents, have meetings with clients and use the desk spaces and technology to work on their business, charity or community projects.
