workLAB collaborates with Kinetic Labs
Rentable lab space as a start-up science company can very difficult to source. Finding affordable lab space is a challenge for many start-up science-based companies. workLAB has joined forces with Kinetic Labs to offer customised laboratory space with access to offices and meeting rooms.
Here John Breen, Kinetic Labs Centre Manager tells us how the offering at Kinetic Labs can provide the ideal solution.
How will renting lab space from Kinetic Labs make a difference?
Kinetic Labs will have many of the facilities and supports that were lacking for me in my start-up journey. Firstly, there will be brand new laboratories – a shared laboratory for companies starting out and individual furnished/unfurnished facilities for more established companies. There will be access to the excellent facilities at workLAB – offices, meeting rooms, café and a community of established companies and start-ups.
Kinetic Labs is located a short walk away from WIT. To me this is the best of both worlds, working within a third level institute can be challenging (as I found out from experience) but having access to the facilities and knowledge within these institutes is a must for many start-ups. Kinetic Labs is also located a short walk away from enterprise support offices – the Regional Enterprise Ireland, IDA and South East Business Innovation Centre are all a 5-minute walk away.
Finally, and very importantly there is a very strong team of people and much local goodwill behind this project – Richie Walsh, Seamus Kilgannon and Patsy Carney are all hands-on directors of Kinetic Labs. Richie is head of Enterprise at the Local Enterprise Office (LEO), a strong supporter of the project. Seamus is a serial entrepreneur who is backing this project both financially and with much appreciated support and advice. Patsy is a role model for any start up – building a world class pharma company (Eirgen) from scratch. He has given much of his spare time freely to this project and has been an invaluable support in helping get this project off the ground.
