THE NORTH WEST REGIONAL SCIENCE PARK IS A CROSS BORDER PROJECT BETWEEN CATALYST INC AND LYIT

Multiple Locations, One Network

Supporting business performance through high-tech facilities and a collaborative community

At Catalyst Inc North West, we manage an impressive estate, spread across our two modern centres in Derry~Londonderry and Letterkenny. Every element of both sites has been designed to nurture high-growth business and accelerate your success.

This means our accommodation delivers much more than just the bricks, mortar and hardware you need to run your business. Beyond agile workspace and technological facilities, Catalyst Inc North West offers a range of support services that are proven to aid the success of knowledge-based businesses.

Catalyst Inc North West provides 70,000 sq ft of high-quality, flexible space across its two locations:

  • The Innovation Centre in Derry~Londonderry – 50,000 sq ft four-storey landmark building, centrally located within Fort George and close to the North West Regional College and the Magee campus of Ulster University.
  • The CoLab facility at LYIT (Letterkenny Institute of Technology) – 20,000 sq ft of Science Park space, designed to provide an optimum mix of lettable workspace, meeting rooms and networking.

The Innovation Centre

Accelerating business growth

Opened in August 2014, the Innovation Centre for Catalyst Inc North West provides 50,000 sq ft of agile workspace, purpose-built to support knowledge-based business, such as software, telecoms, digital media, health & bioscience, clean tech and video production. Built on the site of the former Fort George British Army Barracks, we're close to the city centre and some of its academic institutions. Here you’ll find an environment where you can not only get peace of mind for your business needs but also exchange ideas, share experiences, gain advice, and grow your network.

A lynchpin in cross-border partnership

Plus, the good news is, it’s proven to work. Based on the highly successful model pioneered by the Northern Ireland Science Park, now called Catalyst Inc, in Belfast, this new hub for developing future innovation and technology businesses brings Catalyst Inc’s ecosystem directly into the North West region, linking bright innovators – like you - with a global network of leaders in academic research, universities, institutes and colleges, as well as an extensive collaborative network of national and international bodies.

We’re here to deliver initiatives that help you to expand and develop your business.

CoLab

The name says it all

CoLab is a collaborative enterprise that brings together like-minded entrepreneurs with great ideas, and gives them the flexibility, scope and support to turn them into viable, creative enterprises. Based in Letterkenny, Co.Donegal, the CoLab facility houses a further extension of the successful Catalyst Inc model, expanding the network across the border.

Think of CoLab as a 20,000 sq ft state-of-the-art incubation, research and enterprise centre, purpose-built to support entrepreneurs at every stage of your business development. That means high-end facilities throughout: 100MB up/down broadband provision, VoIP telephony into all units, real-time video conferencing, flexible access through an electronic swipe-key system, and wireless broadband.

A cluster of vibrant SMEs

CoLab also means access to a strong panel of advisors in areas like patenting, marketing, human resources, business strategy and more. And since we’re on the LYIT campus, you also have ready access to a pool of well-qualified and motivated graduates.

In short, CoLab is here to accelerate your business growth through the exchange of knowledge, and by giving you access to expertise, funding, entrepreneur programmes and exceptional facilities.
