Introducing Launch22: Co-working with a difference
What makes Launch22 different from other co-working spaces? For one thing, their rents are actually reasonable. More importantly, it’s the range of support they offer their members.
It’s often the case that freelancers and startups work in isolation, often in a coffee shop or from home, and the lack of interaction with others can easily deflate the best of intentions. Sure, it saves money, but the fact that 90% of entrepreneurs fail in their first year speaks to the fact that a lack of capital isn’t the only reason. People need people – and startups need ways to access advice and direction in order to propel their ideas.
The beauty of Launch22 is that it offers training, support and mentoring to its members – not as an add-on but as part of the whole package. They do this by connecting members with a network of experienced professionals, as well as running training courses, incubator schemes and holding events. They also engage with and involve the local community and pride themselves on being an inclusive space, welcoming members from all walks of life.Their network of mentors is impressive, boasting a wealth of knowledge and experience in a variety of sectors, including investment, marketing, tech and UI, operations, finance, management & HR, legal, idea valuation and more. The fact that they are happy to share their knowledge is like gold dust and tapping into those resources is central to enabling a startup to succeed.
There are three membership plans, all of which offer mentoring and access to free events:
Flexible5 (£100 per month) provides desk space with access till 5pm, five days a month.
Flexible10 (£150 per month) offers the same but for ten days a month as well as the option of a free company registration address.
Fixed Desk (£240 a month) has all of the above plus unlimited access, mail handling, access to a printer, a free locker and storage, and an access key.
The space is pet friendly, has a kitchen, chill out space and meeting rooms, free Wifi and access to printing facilities. Launch22 is definitely a place to check out if you are looking for truly affordable workspace in Poplar.
