We are The Original Shoreditch shared office space, starting out when the term ‘co-working’ was merely a glint in a wanky marketeer’s eye.
The Shoreditch Arch was invented by mistake in December 2006 during a chance taxi ride with a music marketing guru, Chris Greenwood, and budding musician Isa Summers, who later became the machine in Florence and The Machine.
In the middle of them was me, Dave, and a few weeks later I moved our music PR agency, Outpost, into this old railway arch on Rivington Street in Shoreditch.
We imaginatively christened it The Shoreditch Arch and we’re not quite sure how, but over the next few years we gradually turned the Arch into an actual shared co-working space. It subsequently took on a life of its own.
Our ethos is focused on start-ups and small businesses, and unlike alot of the other ‘co-working’ spaces out there, we charge affordable rates to cover stuff that you need (like 350mb superfast internet) and don’t make you pay for stuff you don’t (like 20 alternative types of tea, and jugs of fruit water). We figure if you have managed to start your own company, you are probably capable of buying your own tea bags and getting yourself a glass of water.
We have had many inspiring companies set up home here in the last decade: Underground Rebel Bingo Club, Frame, the Meat Mission founders, this amazing chap Tom who donated his kidney to a stranger…
And we have had some serious entrepreneur winners too – like Eve Sleep, who successfully raised £35 million on the London Stock Exchange in May 2017, valuing the company at £140 million; Crowdoscope, developed with 6-figure £ funding from a well-known high street brand; and other tech start-ups funded by a range of venture capitalists including Crozdesk, and Cucumber Tony who won TechWeek NYC’s LAUNCH startup competition.
In some small way we like to think we have played a part in their success. We hope so anyway.
