North East-headquartered challenger bank Atom has announced plans for a new startup incubator.
Unveiled by chairman Bridget Rosewell at the Great Exhibition of the North’s Business Summit, the Atom Incubator will offer professional advice and fully serviced workspace.
The programme, run from the bank’s HQ in Durham, will also give participants access to a community of entrepreneurs and technologists.
Edward Twiddy, Atom’s chief innovation officer, said: “Atom started in a single room in the Rivergreen Centre just over four years ago.
“Now we’re creating a great offer for new technology startups to join us and the other small businesses at Rivergreen.”
