Its mission is to stimulate long term economic growth by supporting business, inspiring young people to get involved and to showcase to the public and potential inward investors the exciting opportunities that exist.

About Engine Shed

A collaboration between Bristol City Council, the University of Bristol and the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership at the heart of Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone. Our mission is to stimulate long term economic growth by supporting business, inspiring young people to get involved and to showcase to the public and potential inward investors the exciting opportunities that exist here. 

The building, formally opened by the Rt. Hon. Greg Clark MP on 2nd December 2013 after a £1.7m refurbishment program, houses a number of exciting components.

By uniquely co-locating a number of related entities and operating a central Business Lounge which brings together academics, entrepreneurs, business leaders and policy makers, in a high-profile, iconic building next to a mainline train station, the project is of global significance.

An independent Economic Impact Assessment in 2015 showed that Engine Shed had contributed £7.99m to the UK GVA in its first year of operation.

Engine Shed also houses the globally recognised Bristol SETsquared Centre, the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership and Invest Bristol & Bath, the inward investment service.

In addition to the diverse workforce and innovation themes of activity, Engine Shed has also helped facilitate the creation of www.gwventures.co.uk to help stimulate increased investment activity in the West of England.
