Entrepreneurs’ club Central Working expands with second site in London’s Tech City
Third site in all for mobile working chain – with at least three more to follow next year
Central working has launched its third site aimed at boosting growing businesses in London’s Tech City.
Opened today by minister for universities and science David Willetts, the Shoreditch-based club aims to support 22,000 businesses over the next five years, providing entrepreneurs with the tools and networking opportunities to grow their companies.
Launched in collaboration with Barclays, the new site enables Central Working to provide members with potential funding and practical support services from the bank.
The members-only club is the second in Tech City for Central Working, following the launch of the company’s club in collaboration with Google in May 2012, which together with Central Working’s flagship club in Tottenham Court Road has helped over 300 companies to expand so far.
James Layfield, CEO of Central Working and a Growing Business Young Gun now has plans to open three more clubs in London by March 2013. He said: “There’s an incredible entrepreneurial desire in the country at the moment with more and more people starting their own businesses.
“We provide the ideal environment for growing businesses, offering our members the support, infrastructure and tools needed to create the connections, momentum and recognition that will grow their businesses. Our partnership with Barclays unlocks this for thousands more companies.”
