Co-Working

We have a couple of great workspaces in Shoreditch. These include desks and private suites where you can work along-side other great startups in the community.

We manage all the boring stuff so you don’t have to. If you want to give it go, we offer a free trial so you can.

Event Space

We have a fantastic space for running developer events and launches. We run a mixture of community and commercial events.

In 2007 I was looking for a new office space and, being the only UK employee of my firm RedMonk, the only way to do it was to co-work.

Traditional serviced offices are not conducive to work, and include absurdly high service charges. I found a cheap space above a pub in Hoxton, with help from Hackney Council, and moved in.

Not long afterwards I moved to a coworking space on Scrutton Street and fell in love with the place. When the opportunity presented itself, I encouraged a group of us to take on the business ourselves and Shoreditch Works was born.

As the tech city scene grew, so did we, and in 2012 the lack of a free community space to hold a “Town Hall meeting” in the days after the London riots led directly to founding the The Village Hall; an event space committed to hosting 20% free community events. Support for a new community-focused venue in the area was massive and resulted in a successful Kickstarter campaign, which raised £77k in 30 days.

Shoreditch Works’ broader social goals are simple ― to foster local talent in Hackney by working with organisations such as Young Rewired State, CodeClub and TechMums to improve local skills, lowering the digital gradient between Shoreditch and the rest of the borough.
