The Westcott Business Incubation Centre (BIC) is located on the Westcott Venture Park, near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. Westcott BIC has been created for early stage businesses working in the areas of rocket propulsion, 5G communications, drones and other autonomous systems. It has been designed to help talented entrepreneurs with rapid product development, testing and growing a successful technology business
