    Shoreditch Works

    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 cowork.  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.  James Governor: Founder of Shoreditch Works
