Innovation at heart of newest STC members Inspiralia & Tecadec

Silverstone Technology Cluster

15th July 2021

Inspiralia, a leading global name in attracting funding for innovative high-risk projects, and new start-up Tecadec, which has launched a novel portable workstation design, are among the latest businesses to join the STC’s membership.

Tecadec’s product – which it dubs ‘an office anywhere’ – includes monitor, keyboard and mouse.

The product, weighing just 10kgs, can be constructed or folded away in little over a minute.

Tecadec was founded by entrepreneur Peter Bond. Its Marketing Director is Michael Gibson who has headed sales and marketing teams for electronics giants such as Sony and Samsung.

Michael said: “The idea is a response to an increase in people working from home as the covid pandemic hit. We believe we have a winning product.

“It’s a contemporary mobile office solution that offers an alternative to working from the kitchen table; it’s also very handy for those who need to get on-screen in a hotel room or a lobby for example.

“But we’re only at the start and we recognised the STC’s membership and connections have the knowledge and experience that can help us evolve the product to the next generation.

“That could be us leaning on people to discuss engineering matters, product development or even manufacturing.”

Inspiralia is one of the largest, most successful companies in helping businesses raise ‘non-dilutive funding’; that is, grants.  

It has a presence along the USA’s East Coast as well throughout the EU with offices in Madrid, Vienna, Miami and, in the UK, Cambridge, employing some 100 staff.

Product Development Director Patrick Nicholson explained: “The grants we identify and match are almost always funding innovation, impact and job creation – provided they are a risky endeavour, disruptive and potentially game-changing

“We are interested in the STC, in getting to know the innovative companies involved. We are getting closer generally to tech clusters around the UK, the catapults, chambers of commerce and regional development agencies, so as to make businesses more aware of the funds available.

“The STC’s connections and its strong voice in the Oxford-Cambridge Arc development are certainly of great interest to us as it’s something we can potentially leverage.”
