"The Nucleus offers exactly the right kind of support for start-up companies."


The Pioneer 10 programme has offered immediate practical help to companies working at The Nucleus, including project management service provider Diligence. Marketing director Nicola Coppen feels that the programme motivated her to think strategically about the best way to develop the business, taking up a desk at The Nucleus after attending a workshop. As soon as Diligence moved in, Nicola began working with Matthew McLarty, the Business Innovation Director at the Nucleus, who has helped guide her development from a project manager to a managing director of a project management organisation.
