Barclays opens MediaCityUK Eagle Lab

Barclays has opened a new Eagle Lab at Salford’s MediaCityUK in partnership with The Landing.

The Eagle Lab will provide start-ups with access to resources including expert mentoring, 3D printers, laser cutters and events space. 

The partnership between Barclays and The Landing will give Manchester entrepreneurs and the wider community access to a facility that will help them experience the potential of cutting edge technology and will encourage them to think about how it could be applied to the creation of innovative future solutions.

Barclays has already opened Eagle Labs in Birmingham, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cambridge, Norwich and more recently, Notting Hill.

Michael Hartig, managing director, high growth and entrepreneurs at Barclays, said: “The new Barclays Eagle Lab in Salford is our first one in the North and represents a significant step in our relationship with the start-up community.

“We’ve created the Barclays Eagle Labs because technology is transforming the speed at which start-ups can grow and scale.

“Simply having access to a 3D printer can now help people turn a clever idea into a business success overnight, and by providing practical resources along with our financial expertise we intend to help many businesses succeed.

“The new Barclays Eagle Labs in Salford is located in the heart of MediaCityUK, providing a vibrant creative and media sector with access to the tools and resources that will help them accelerate growth.”
