Support the Biomakespace


If you would like to support us in creating a community innovation space for engineering with biology, please donate below!

We are relying on support for the initial refurbishment of the space and to help maintain it and cover running costs during 2017-18 while we are growing the community. 

Donate a one-off amount by direct debit using the links below or via PayPal if you'd like to select another amount. If you would like to make a larger donation, Direct Debit or direct bank transfer means more of your money will reach us - please contact us on and we will send relevant details.

Founder Donor Campaign

Donations of any amount are welcome and appreciated, all donors will be acknowledged on our website but we also have some special rewards available to founder donors in Feb-Mar 2017:

£20 or more - Biomakespace stickers and a special thank you on our website

£50 or more - all above plus use your donation as membership credit if you join the Biomakespace and get listed on our founder supporter plaque at Biomakespace

£100 or more - all above plus a VIP invitation to our opening event



Become a Biomakespace Member

We are currently preparing to accept our first cohort of members - if you'd like to apply to join the space and have access to our member training, social events and the opportunity to propose projects, please see the Membership page for more information and to express interest. You can also look out for 'See the Biomakespace' events on Cambridge Synthetic Biology Meetup.

We don't expect to be up and running with projects until Q1-Q2 2017 but we will keep you updated with plans and in the meantime you are of course welcome to volunteer to get the space up and running.

Membership Fees

Membership will be paid monthly and the amount is based on what you think the space is worth to you, with a minimum of £15 per month (£5 students).

If you donate £50 or more as a founder donor (Feb-Mar 2017) you can use your donation as credit if you go on to become a full member.
