Silicon Valley tech start-up campus is coming to London
San Francisco-based office-as-a-service provider RocketSpace is launching in Angel following success in helping likes of Uber and Spotify
RocketSpace, the Silicon Valley-based start-up office provider, has announced plans to open a ‘state-of-the-art’ campus in Angel which will be designed specifically for high-growth technology start-ups.
Marking the company’s first overseas location, its London site will give up to 1,500 entrepreneurs access to office space, WiFi, collaborative workspaces, event venues, and workshops and roundtable events. It will accept start-up teams ranging in size from one employee to 100.
The building will occupy the current offices of RBS; the development partner for the campus, while the site has also had backing from UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and London & Partners.
Launched in 2011, RocketSpace’s San Fransisco campus has been home to more than 750 tech start-ups including unicorns (companies with $1bn+ valuations) such as Uber, Blippar, SuperCell, and Spotify.
Duncan Logan, founder and CEO of RocketSpace, commented:“London’s tech community continues to rapidly expand and drive innovation.
“Creating a physical presence here is critical to our expansion strategy and mission to build an ecosystem for innovation to thrive, across a global network of campuses. We are very excited about working with London’s tech entrepreneurs, who are creating some of the most disruptive technologies of the future.”
