Our Story

We loved coworking. We hated coworking. So we knew what we needed to do. 

One night in 2014 a couple of tech nerds were once again up late, complaining that coworking wasn’t… quite working. We kept being told about the potential to create amazing spaces, to collaborate and properly innovate. And we wanted all that stuff. So why weren’t we having any fun?

We were desperate to combine all the stuff we loved about coworking: beautiful spaces for work and play to collide, being around exciting people who inspired us, the joy of working better, smarter, and harder together. 

But, there was stuff we hated too. We hated all the hidden fees, the complicated extras, the endless paperwork, the nagging feeling of being taken for a ride. So, we figured enough complaining. We’d build somewhere that sacked all that stuff off. No pretensions, no waffle, just honesty, integrity and a good time. 

At the opening of our first shaky pop-up, we switched on the wifi, opened our doors, and crossed our fingers. And – to our delight – discovered a whole load of people who thought just like us. 

It’s been 6 years, and we’ve grown to five locations, over 2,000 members and watched our companies raise over £500 million. We’re here to make good work, with good people. And we’re here to have fun.
