London is home to over 800,000 small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), including micro-businesses, that account for 99.8% of businesses and nearly half the capital’s jobs. Such SMEs contain much of London’s future innovation, enterprise and growth.
Securing the benefits of this innovation and enterprise depends on London’s SMEs being able to find affordable, appropriate workspace. The London Open Workspaces map is an interactive guide to the capital's incubators and co-working spaces alongside other start-up workspaces, artists' studios and maker-spaces.
The London Open Workspaces map makes the locations and services of over 500 workspaces publicly available and is an invaluable resource for anyone with an idea that has outgrown their kitchen table. View the map below or click here to open the full-screen version in a new window.
The Greater London Authority (GLA) has also established the London Workspace Providers Board, which is working to ensure providers of existing incubators, accelerators and co-working (IAC) spaces can inform emerging workspace policies, share learning, and engage with boroughs and developers.
