The Nwes marketing team recently travelled to London for one of our regular meet-ups and used the time beforehand as an opportunity to visit our workspace centres in East London.
Sharing coffee with the Nwes centre coordinators and Nwes tenants, it was insightful to learn more about the issues and opportunities facing start-ups in the capital, and to hear how these differ from the businesses Nwes supports across the East of England and East Midlands.
After a short tube journey from London Liverpool Street to All Saints on the DLR, we discovered the historic Chrisp Street Market and the Nwes-managed Chrisp Street Exchange. A newly refurbished, spacious workspace carefully designed for both start-ups and high growth businesses, the modern interior impressed us as soon as we walked in and made for some excellent new photos for the Nwes website.
Despite us only spending around an hour at the centre, we were in agreement that we could easily work from Chrisp Street Exchange as a team if we could, as it appeared to be a particularly good space for creative work and staying focused.
Alongside the appearance and relaxed atmosphere of the centre, the tenants and coworking members were some of the most ambitious and forward-thinking we’ve spoken to in some time, particularly digital marketing specialists, Gameyfi, who lease a large part of the lower floor. We spoke to Technical Director / Founder, Manuel Yemoh, for his take on basing a business at the centre:
“Chrisp Street Exchange is a friendly and professional working environment, which is cost-effective for a start up company. The staff are very friendly and the place is kept clean at all times. It’s great to have a space where you can progress your goals and ambitions around like minded people.”
With good transport links, affordable rates and a range of business support available, apply for space at Chrisp Street Exchange before the Nwes marketing team does! Including our photos from the day, click below to view the new Chrisp Street Exchange web page.
