RocketSpace, the San Francisco accelerator whose alumni include Uber, Blippar, and Spotify, has announced plans for a London tech campus.
The new campus, which will be designed specifically for fast-growing tech startups, will reportedly have capacity for up to 1,500 members.
“London’s tech community continues to rapidly expand and drive innovation”, says Duncan Logan. “Creating a physical presence here is critical to our expansion strategy and mission to build an ecosystem for innovation to thrive, across a global network of campuses. We are very excited about working with London’s tech entrepreneurs, who are creating some of the most disruptive technologies of the future”.
Kevin Hanley, RBS director of design, enthused about partnering with RocketSpace.
“RocketSpace will be housed in a building that we own in Angel. This will enable us to develop closer, deeper relationships with some of the startups; the companies we believe will be shaping the digital economy in the UK”.
RocketSpace is due to open its London campus in early 2017.
