Despite the economic doom and gloom, Tech City has continued to buck the trend and provide the perfect environment for fledgling companies to flourish.
More than 15,000 technology companies have established themselves in Shoreditch in the last 12 months – all capitalising on the consolidation of expertise in EC1, combined with relatively cheap rental costs and networking opportunities. The district is already producing success stories, and with another consecutive year of record-breaking growth estimated for 2013, it would seem Tech City has an immensely bright future.
Tech City offers more than just a hub of technological know-how. A community of young start-ups has developed, with a number of shared working spaces providing the opportunity for entrepreneurs to share ideas, advice and stories of their Shoreditch experiences. ‘Central Working’, the open seating area at Campus, is one of a number of new, pioneering forums for the exchange of knowledge and tips on taking the next step.
Having gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2008, Tech City has seen the emergence of new and innovative ways for small start-ups to get a foothold in one of the world’s most exciting technology destinations. ‘Silicon Roundabout’ offers something for everyone – whether it be a one-man band looking for low cost shared workspace and networking opportunities, or an emerging technology player seeking to be situated at the heart of East London’s technological revolution.
