Scottish Enterprise

Welcome to Alba Innovation Centre

The Alba Innovation Centre was developed by Scottish Enterprise and West Lothian Council specifically for early stage innovative technology businesses with great ambitions to grow. Alba Innovation Centre offers innovative technology businesses a place to incubate and grow. If you are running a technology business with a great idea, product or service and are looking for a location to base your business where you can tap into specialist support and a community of like-minded individuals, look no further than the Alba Innovation Centre!

Over the last 5 years Scottish Enterprise has helped over 55 businesses from Software Engineers to Energy Technologists and Digital Media to Medical Devices companies start and grow their businesses based in the Alba Innovation Centre.

Now Scottish Enterprise has also developed the Alba Incubation Service to further enhance their assistance to young, growing technology businesses throughout Scotland. It isn’t all location, location, location; we know that sometimes you’ll want to locate somewhere else in Scotland. That’s why we’re spreading our wings. Our Alba Incubation Service now offers the same range of support to early stage innovative technology businesses right across Scotland. There is also a programme of events designed to inform and challenge you whilst making some vital connections you’ll need in the months and years ahead.

Why not get in touch to discuss how we can help your business take off.
