Edspace: Engineering London Edtech Community
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Brendan Earley from Edspace last month, a co-working space based in a community college in the London borough of Hackney, where education startups, collaborate, grow and learn from each other.
Formalising the strong London edtech cluster and collecting innovation under one roof
Coworking spaces are surrounding us. But before the creation of Edspace, there was no single place for education entrepreneurs to work together in London — there’s a growing demand for such thing facilitated by increasing investment into the education sector. The new 150-desks coworking space was founded by four of the movers and shakers of the London Edtech ecosystem and recently relocated to a bigger space.
