The Eagle Lab, a co-working and innovation space for ambitious entrepreneurs to scale and grow their business and receive advice, will be located in Albert Square.

Barclays has already set up 17 Eagle Labs across the UK to help businesses network, collaborate and grow. 

In Manchester, the 12,000 square foot Lab will be laid out over two floors in Bruntwood’s Union Building and include an 80-seat auditorium, co-working and breakout space and a combination of private offices, meeting rooms and breakout spaces. A coffee shop will also be on site which will be open to the public.

Ben Davey, CEO, Barclays UK Ventures, said: “Manchester has thrived on a spirit of innovation and industry - a spirit that led to the development of the world’s first programmable computer.

“Technology is now transforming the speed at which start-ups can grow and scale and by providing world-class space and practical resources alongside our financial and business expertise, our mission is to help individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses to innovate, network and ultimately succeed.

 “We recognise the importance of supporting entrepreneurs, start-ups and accelerating high-growth companies, and the vital role they play in creating a sustainable, prosperous Manchester economy.”
