What our tenants say...

Mohammed Chaudhury of Spartapay says:

"This iconic structure makes it an ideal facility for Spartapay to develop and progress its ideas and innovation into new products. Its central position enabled us to easily establish research and technology transfer collaboration with the university. To date UMIC have helped us secure a SMART R&D award, recruit a PhD to develop future product strategy for us through a science council funded CASE award and link us up with a number of potential funders and sources of contracts”
