From £199 per person per month.
Work, meet, think and (occasionally) drink side by side with fellow founders and innovators.
Perfect for entrepreneurs and flexible teams, our hot desks give you the perks of all-inclusive access to our community, events, spaces and meeting rooms, without needing to a commit to a permanent desk. It’s certainly a big step up from the local caff with the dodgy wifi, but without the hefty price tag of an office.

Frequently Asked Questions
HoW FLEXIBLE ARE YOUR CONTRACTS?
You can serve one calendar months notice at any point on our dedicated desk and hotdesk memberships. Our private offices and scale-up offices come with the ability to serve two calendar months notice.
WHAT ELSE MIGHT I PAY FOR AT RUNWAY EAST BEYOND MY MEMBERSHIP FEES?
We would hope....nothing. We understand that you just want to see one predictable bill at the end of each month, and that's what we strive to deliver. The only use cases in which you might pay extra would be if you went over your assigned meeting room allowance, which is calculated to reflect your teams size and the need to balance your needs with others in the space - unlike other spaces, we don't view our meeting rooms as a revenue channel - but we do charge you £10 an hour if you go over your meeting room allowance to make sure no one uses the rooms too much! In 2016 we charged less than 2% of our members for exceeding their allowances. There is also a fair usage policy on printing, which is still exceptionally generous - 120 b/w pages per person per month, plus 20 colour per person per month, and if you would like us to customise your office for you we charge modest fees for painting, building booths etc.
How Do I BOOK MEETING ROOMS?
We have an online portal for our members which allows you to book meeting rooms - it takes all of 60 seconds to do it, and you can amend, cancel and add new bookings just as easily.
what are your opening times?
All our sites are open 24/7, 365 days per year. Our staff our onsite to troubleshoot any issues you have 9am -6pm every weekday, with 24/7 security outside of working hours.
WHAT ARE YOUR MEMBERSHIP CRITERIA & RULES?
We are for startups of the type described by Paul Graham of YCombinator in his famous 'Startup = Growth' blog post, and for the investors and corporate innovation teams that support them.
