Central Working launches Paddington workspace and one-month ‘Brexit leases’
Techstars and London Partners have already signed as members to the Startups Awards winner's new West London office location
Close to the upcoming Crossrail line and witj links to Heathrow, the new ‘Paddington Club’ at 2 Kingdom Street will look to attract technology businesses in the capital, providing facilities and support to help them grow.
Global tech accelerator Techstars and the Mayor of London’s promotional company London & Partners have both signed up as tenants of the new West London facility.
Founded in 2011, Startups Awards-winning Central Working now operates seven shared workspace membership clubs across the UK, housing more than 1,200 businesses including Microsoft Ventures, the creators of Angry Birds, and mediation app Headspace.
To coincide with the office launch, Central Working has also introduced one-month ‘Brexit Leases’ as a change from its usual three-month leases.
It says the new leases will allow new members joining before October to have more of a safety net given the current uncertainties surrounding the UK’s status in the European Union. Other co-working groups such as WeWork and Co-Work already offer one-month leases.
James Layfield, CEO of Central Working, said: “With two leading Tech City influencers now in residence, Central Working Paddington will help the capital’s booming tech scene spread out from the Silicon Roundabout and truly flourish in West London.”
