This includes the creation of Tontine – a thriving business accelerator funded by Glasgow City Region City Deal, and Barras Art & Design in the East End.

Located in the heart of Glasgow City Centre, the District is home to innovative companies, who want nurture and accelerate growth, improve productivity, and access world-class research and technology from the University.
