Innovation Centres (powered by 5PRING)

View more videos

Many of the digital services we have benefited from over the last decade have been developed by small businesses, so-called “start-ups” and “scale-ups.”

Innovation centres are organisations that work with start-up and scale-up businesses to help them be more successful in getting up and running.

5PRING has launched the UK’s first 5G commercial innovation centres. With facilities located in Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton, we aim to help organisations of all sizes unlock 5G’s full potential.

5PRING is designed specifically to attract businesses and entrepreneurs to solve major problems and create opportunities that can be commercially scaled, when proven.  At least 1,900 private sector businesses and public sector organisations from across the West Midlands and beyond will be able to benefit from using the 5G innovation centres over the next five years.

5PRING is open to business and public sector organisations to immerse themselves, experience a live 5G network and work with innovators to take advantage of how the next generation of mobile access to the internet can unlock new applications and services. challenge
