Google Campus London
Aims to help the London ecosystem thrive by providing a physical space for startups – a seven-storey building in East London – with an open workspace and open access event spaces, mentoring, and innovative programming such as Founders over 50, #poctech and Campus for Mums.
Google Campus London provides the infrastructure, networking and mentoring that can help businesses reach their scaleup potential.
The hub for growing young companies is based in a seven-storey building in East London which now houses an 85,000-strong community of entrepreneurs and their workforces – up from 50,000 in early 2016. The concept is a place for innovative business leaders to meet, learn, share and grow.
To meet this ambition Google Campus offers a supportive community, open workspace, Google-led programming, education and a range of events that builds powerful networks: during 2016, the Campus hosted 790 events.
First launched in the UK in 2012, Google has extended the concept to five other locations: Madrid, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Tel Aviv and Warsaw. Recently Google launched Campus Residency, a 6-month selective growth programme that helps six startups powered by machine learning to benefit from bespoke programming and unique access to Google’s connections and knowledge.
Businesses supported by the Google Campus are very diverse: 38% female, average age early thirties and from 160+ nationalities.
Since launch companies based in the network have raised more than £128 million in funding and created over 3,600 jobs.
