Looking to start an Agritech Business – Reside at Trent Lodge and Grow your Idea!

After months of planning and anticipation, Farm491 is delighted to announce its doors to Trent Lodge are officially open!

Trent Lodge is the first phase of the Farm491 development, with office space on the first floor of the lodge now available for agritech start-ups to occupy. An official launch of the complete building will take place in September, but due to pressing demand for its space and with businesses already waiting to move in, Trent Lodge is excited to welcome its first residents.

Whether businesses would like to use the space for ‘hot-desking’, retain a permanent work base, or utilise support and share ideas amongst industry peers, Trent Lodge offers a flexible, inclusive working environment. It can also facilitate virtual working for those who are located further afield. Membership is based on a hierarchal system providing different levels of support or facility to suit budgets – bespoke packages can be tailored according to individual needs. A membership fee is paid each month, ranging from £50 to £300 per month – and for full fee paying students at RAU who wish to start up their own agritech business, Farm491 membership is completely free.
