As well as coworking, Innovation Station will offer an on-site coffee shop, state-of-the-art meeting rooms, private telephone booths and a podcast studio. In addition to catering to local businesses, Innovation Station will be home to the Welsh Government funded Soft-Landing Programme, managed by Tramshed Tech and Newport Council which supports international tech companies ‘soft-land’ in Wales.  

Programme participants benefit from an intensive 12-week business support programme, coupled with six months of complimentary office space at Tramshed Tech’s new ‘Innovation Station’, located in Newport. 

“Innovation Station represents a significant step in our mission to support the dynamic tech ecosystem in Wales as well as support international talent to soft land in the region,” said Mark John, Co-Founder and Director at Tramshed Tech. “We are thrilled to open our second space in Newport which will bring together both home grown and international businesses alike in Newport – the gateway to Wales.” 

Innovation Station, formerly known as Information Station, is a transformation of the former Railway Station building initiated by Newport City Council. The facility has been redesigned as a hub for tech, digital, and creative startups and scaling businesses. This strategic partnership between Tramshed Tech and Newport Council aims to foster innovation, entrepreneurship, and economic development within the region. 

Tramshed Tech’s expansion to Innovation Station reaffirms its commitment to driving the growth of the tech sector in Wales. The new location will provide a collaborative environment where businesses can connect, learn, and thrive together.
