The Eagle Lab is a 5000 square feet community resource that offers a range of resources including co-working space, expert mentoring, training workshops, a fully-equipped ‘MakerSpace’ to support rapid prototype development, and private office space. 


The Eagle Lab concept originates in the UK, but has been made possible in the Isle of Man through Barclays' partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and the Department for Enterprise.


Barclays Eagle Labs are spaces set up by Barclays to help businesses create, innovate and grow. They also operate as community resources supporting digital empowerment for all.


Their focus is to drive digital skills development, productivity and economic growth, and support job creation.
