Barclays Eagle Lab Cranfield logo

Barclays has partnered with Cranfield University to support the future innovators of Bedfordshire.

The space in the heart of the University campus is tailored to the aerospace and aviation technology community, drawing on the University’s aerospace heritage.


Eagle Labs provide a wealth of support to startup businesses, particularly those who are focused on technology and innovation. For those needing physical space we provide coworking and offices throughout the UK.

For those looking for more virtual support you’ll be able to access our services and expertise remotely. Businesses can be connected to our mentors, specialists and deals that are all designed to help them grow. We also provide access to a collaborative community where businesses can be put in touch with and learn from their peers.


Scaling businesses can benefit from some of the more bespoke and tailored approach that is available through Labs. We offer specialists in growth through our mentoring partners. Businesses looking to raise further capital can be connected to investors through our Demo Directory.

If a business is looking to grow and raise overseas –particularly in the United States – the Eagle Lab Global Connect programme, run by Silicon Valley veterans, will be of interest.

Private investors

Eagle Labs provides access to a community of high potential and growing businesses, many who will be looking for investment.

Our Demo Directory allows potential investors to subscribe to a regular update showcasing top Eagle Lab businesses who are fundraising.


The Eagle Labs community offers a mechanism that helps corporates better understand innovation and new and emerging technologies. Opportunities exist where corporates can collaborate with innovators.

Our industry programmes in Law, Agrifood Healthcare, Energy and Digital Security provide facilitated connections and help bridge the gap between startups and corporates. More generally Eagle Labs can connect larger businesses with innovators.

Supporting local economies

Eagle Labs believes that supporting technology startups and scaleups accelerates, innovates and stimulates the right type of economic growth. Other organisations, including local authorities and government, share a similar view.

Wherever possible Eagle Labs looks to collaborate with like-minded organisations, helping them support their local economies.
