MediCity is a collaboration between Boots and BioCity, the UK's leading life sciences incubation business, and was the first new business on site as part of the Nottingham Enterprise Zone, opening to tenants in November 2013.
MediCity provides a stimulating and supportive business development environment for innovators in consumer healthcare, medical technology, diagnostics, and beauty products. It offers the ideal environment for both start-up and established companies to grow and achieve success. MediCity is also a unique venue for conferences and events of eventually up to 1,000 delegates focused on health, beauty and wellbeing.
Businesses housed at MediCity benefit from BioCity’s experience of growing successful businesses in specialised incubator environments and Walgreens Boots Alliance expertise in the global healthcare market. Hot desks and "pods" create a flexible working environment for individuals or small teams at the very early stages of developing a business idea. MediCity provides laboratory and office facilities, access to high-end equipment, shared services, training, business support and access to investment.
Support for the early stage businesses based at MediCity is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
