This is the online home of the Future Business Pre-Incubator (it’s a mouthful, so we use FBPI for short)!

Our kick-off event was the Future Business Weekend (powered by Idea Transform), 9-11 November at Saïd Business School, Oxford. The Future Business Weekend incorporated Silicon Valley Comes to the UK Startup Competition in Oxford, so as well as science-based challenges we tackled big data. We’ve been blogging about this adventure in innovation – see how we got from nothing but ambition to 12 brand new teams mostly accessing available IP.

You’re welcome to sign up at and explore around 100 technologies already available through FBPI on startup-friendly terms.
