Find your tribe: The best office spaces in London to fulfil your business needs

HubHub 03
HubHub is one of a number of working space providers vying for the SME market

With office sharing spaces and other workplace initiatives like hot-desking on the rise – evident by a Cushman & Wakefield report which found that “across Central London alone, flexible workplace providers have taken nearly 20% of office space” – it is no better time than ever to find the right home for your business. Over 145,000 startups launched in London alone last year, meaning this demand is only set to grow.

Every business has its own individual needs and goals, so it’s important to find the right place to house that energy and keep it growing. Finding the right office space for your organisation is key to building up your next great venture, so it’s worth taking your time and having a real think about where you want to house your craft.

Different types of businesses have varying demands, audiences and team members to cater for, which is why it is important to consider the unique offering each supplier brings to the table. A co-working space is more than a rec room and beer on tap – it has a responsibility to provide your business with the correct atmosphere to thrive, flourish, and prosper in.

With this in mind, we have rounded up the five best workplace providers in London that will help lift an idea or venture off the ground. There’s a perfect space out there for every kind of business.
