Set up as a startup accelerator, the Nailab has helped develop many ideas into viable business ventures. Over the past 12 months they’ve been host to a number of groups including MPrep recently featured in an interview on this blog. On Friday 10th of this month, the startups were graduating from the Nailab space and were getting ready to face their market. The startups moving out of the space include:
