Auerbach once said “An idea must be able to become reality, lest it is nothing but a soap bubble”. There is a lot of truth to this sentence – especially for start-ups. Many start-ups have fantastic ideas. However, they often lack the means for their implementation. The Business Incubation Centre (BIC) of the Science & Facilities Council (STFC) supports these companies in realising their ideas. We went to the grounds of the BIC in Harwell, Oxford for a video shoot and experienced quite a lot during this visit.
