WeWork opens UK’s “biggest” shared workspace in Moorgate
Fourth London location has space for over 3,000 entrepreneurs across eight floors
Providing work desks and services for entrepreneurs, freelancers, small businesses and divisions of large corporations, the newest site has space to house over 3,000 members across eight floors.
Close to Moorgate station and Old Street – the heart of London’s Tech City – the new location is set to open in three phases: with certain floors opening on July 1, a second “phase” of opening on August 1, and a “final” phase on September 1.
Members will also be able to take advantage of a range of commercial partnerships including access to education services, career development and legal help.
Founded in 2010 by Adam Neumann and Miguel McKelvey in New York, WeWork has seen rapid global expansion and claims to have over 25,000 members worldwide.
McKelvey, chief creative officer at WeWork, commented: “There is a worldwide move towards entrepreneurial culture and, as a global leader in culture and commerce, London embodies that more than most cities.
Gerard Grech, Tech City UK CEO – which has joined WeWork Moorgate – added: “Collaboration is at the heart of the digital start-up culture.
“Digital businesses instinctively understand that the growth of their business and the cluster they’re in is founded upon a supportive network of entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders – exactly the type of environment co–working spaces such as WeWork foster.”
