The Office Group opens new workspace in Borough high street
To coincide with launch, office specialist has launched initiative to give local entrepreneurs chance to "shape the future of workspaces"
The Office Group (TOG), a provider of design-led flexible workspace, is today launching a new initiative to provide free workspace for local entrepreneurs to coincide with the launch of its 20th office.
201 Borough High Street is the company’s first building south of the river, and just round the corner from Startups HQ. It offers flexible workspace, meeting rooms and co-working space and will also feature storage, showers, a fitness studio and a roof garden.
Founded by Olly Olsen and Charlie Green, TOG currently has 27 buildings in the pipeline and a deal with Network Rail to locate workspaces in the vicinity of train stations.
The TOG Futures initiative will grant a specially selected group of local entrepreneurs the opportunity to work on a project that will “shape the future of workspaces”.
Successful applicants will receive free access to the ‘Clubroom’ at the new building, mentoring by business leaders, as well as membership to TOG, with access to regular events, discounts and benefits.
Those interested in TOG futures can apply here.
Olsen commented: “We are really proud of 201 Borough High Street. It is a beautifully designed, flexible workspace in the heart of Sothwark offering members a vibrant working atmosphere.
“In fact just being there I’ve never seen so many people come into work so happy. It is this passion and environment that we want to celebrate by launching TOG Futures, providing the platform for the next generation of successful local entrepreneurs.”
“We still remember how hard it was to get off the ground as a fledgling business, so we’re delighted to be able to help local entrepreneurs and creative by providing them with a space to create and grow amongst like-minded people.
“I am really excited about what TOG Futures will create and I hope it has an impact on the way we all work in the future.”
