We can help you

Plan it

Bring an idea to STEAMhouse and our experts will help you create an action plan. You can get free business support and come to STEAMlabs, talks and events to meet collaborators, build new relationships and get your dream off the ground.

Make it

Use our makerspace and state of the art equipment, plus get advice from our friendly & experienced technicians. All for free. There’s even the possibility of qualifying for grants of up to £2,500 to fund materials for early stage prototypes.

Launch it

To help you turn your ideas into a business reality, our in-house experts will help you develop & refine your business plan, launch your product to the world and protect your intellectual property.

What’s on offer?

As well as collaborating with fellow innovators from all kinds of backgrounds, STEAMhouse members receive guidance from industry experts skilled in everything from manufacturing to marketing, people who’ve been there and done it  – but want to help you do it differently. Members can also access wood, metal, digital and print workshops; get support to develop new skills; attend community and networking events; and have the opportunity to apply for grants.
