Level39 provides an 80,000 square foot innovation space in Canary Wharf’s One Canada Square growing businesses from fintech, AI, data, blockchain, smart cities, retail technology and cybersecurity. Members are encouraged to work with one another, buy from one another, and collaborate.
As well as access to flexible infrastructure, Level39’s businesses have a gateway to executive education provided by Fintech Circle and the Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship as well as informal support from the neighbouring UCL School of Management. A roster of 200 mentors provide guidance and support.
During the prolonged lockdown Level39 has been open and accessible but activities such as Office Hours with mentors and investors, as well as seminars, webinars and events have been moved online to ensure members can tap into the resources available.
Digital39 was launched in May to put the spotlight on member businesses and offer a support resource and in September Level39 held its first monthly virtual collaboration and networking event involving members and mentors.
As restrictions eased Level39 found its entrepreneurs largely returning to the office to re-establish collaboration, creativity and learning while offering hybrid and flexible ways of working to their teams.
