The workspace and innovation centre set in the heart of Shoreditch will provide 20 startup founders with space and support to grow
We’re really excited today to announce that founders in the OneTech community will soon be able to benefit from a free membership to IDEALondon.
IDEALondon is home to some of the most ambitious and flourishing new businesses in London’s tech city. A partnership of University College London, EDF and Capital Enterprise, IDEALondon provides startups with space and support — from access to funding and the best talent to advice from its expert partners.
OneTech startup founders involved in programmes supported by JPMorgan Chase or the Inclusive Knowledge Economy programme (IKE) will be able to apply for one of 20 available memberships, which will provide them with three months of access and support.
The free membership will be available for two cohorts of ten founders, starting in March 2021. Given the pandemic, founders will have a choice between a fixed desk, a hot desk or a virtual membership. The virtual membership gives founders a huge package of support including mentoring, events, credit and discounts.
When allowed to re-open, IDEALondon is operating a Covid-19 safe space and provides breakout spaces, free meeting rooms for members, a welcoming cafe space, free tea and coffee and unlimited Wi-Fi. Members will be able to work alongside a community of startups founders all building MVPs.
You can take a look at the fantastic, vibrant space, below.
Startups that have previously been apart of the IDEALondon community and gone on to great success include Curve, the FinTech which recently closed a $95M Series C, online fashion ecosystem SilkFred, visual fashion search tool Snap Fashion, and UniBuddy, a platform connecting prospective students with real-time access to University students.
You’ll be able to tap into the existing IDEALondon community of startups, alongside mentors and industry experts. There are also ongoing online events to get involved in to get to know the IDEALondon network.
To register your interest, apply here and someone from the OneTech team will be in touch.
We target underrepresented communities in tech including women, people of colour and people from challenging socioeconomic backgrounds.
