Google to launch ‘internet university’ for Tech City start-ups next month
New facility to offer advice and shared workspace
Google says it will open a 25,000 sq ft ‘internet university’ for budding entrepreneurs in London’s tech city next month.
The new facility, called Campus, will span seven storeys and provide expert advice and communal workspace for promising tech and digital start-ups. Google signed a 10-year lease on a building at Bonhill Street, on the fringe of Silicon Roundabout, last year, and the building is currently being refurbished in preparation for its new role. In a recent statement, Google said: “East London’s Tech City is already home to hundreds of world-leading developers, entrepreneurs and ideas, and is rapidly developing into an exciting centre for tech start-ups. “Campus’ goal is to fuel the success of the UK start-up community.”
