A cornerstone of Tech City’s co-working scene, TechHub has announced a new site will be launched in Wales’ second city. The organisation, who provide work space for entrepreneurs and starts-ups to “meet, work, learn and collaborate”, have repeatedly been at the forefront of cluster formation, both in the UK and internationally.
The Welsh Government has provided some financial backing to the project that it is hoped will develop a fledgling start-up scene that already exists in Swansea. The space will provide around 50 desks for residents, as well as a variety of services and networking opportunities to members.
TechHub has always been about more that co-working space. Since its London conception in 2010, the focus has been on creating a community around the tech scene, presenting opportunities beyond the confines of the traditional work space. Collaboration between residents is rife, and advice is readily shared by entrepreneurs who have already made the mistakes and learned the lesson. Drawing on the expertise of its founders, TechHub has set the bar for co-working in Tech City.
At the start of the summer, the work space giants announced a new work space in Bucharest, adding to existing properties in Manchester, London and Riga. It is hoped that investment in these areas will help develop tech clusters elsewhere in Europe, eventually competing for the best start-ups with East London’s Tech City.
Swansea is yet to emerge as a technology powerhouse, but TechHub’s commitment to the city suggests that moves may be afoot to change this. We wish them every success, and look forward to seeing where will be next for the co-workers.
