White Bear Yard – home for startups in London

Posted: May 28th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: photo, posts | Tags: | 2 Comments »

Last month, while in London, we met up with an American friend who’s building a startup in the UK. His company and five others are working out of a new space in Clerkenwell called White Bear Yard. If you’re looking for an example of a great space for startups to work in, this should be one of your models. The space is fantastic and the companies are equally exciting – I’m sure we’ll see great things from this cohort.

The space was originally part of IDEO’s London studio, but is now the home to a bunch of motivated entrepreneurs (IDEO is still on one floor of the building). Below are two photos I took with my Blackberry, though they don’t really capture the essence of the space. It’s a very contemporary space, very airy and open, with nice areas for the companies to collaborate. And, for those times when you need to unwind, the space comes complete with a rooftop garden (also very nice!)!

If you’re in the area, I highly recommend you check it out. Follow White Bear Yard on Twitter and read more in this post on VentureBeat.

Located up a fairly nondescript alley in Clerkewell:
