Anyone who has worked in a startup or SME will know that finding the right coworking space is no easy task. Beautiful design often requires deep pockets, and dark and dingy basements can take their toll on vitamin D.
Huckletree, a community-oriented coworking hub in Farringdon, might just have the answer. Bright and affordable, their space is the perfect solution for startups looking for an inspiring and conveniently located office.
To get an idea of what it’s like working at Huckletree, we sat down with Jessica Ramsden, Lead Business Development Manager at Stylight.
Can you tell me about Stylight? What is it that you do?
Jessica: We’re a content-focused fashion website that allows customers to search across 500+ international brands and get inspiration from the industry’s top fashion bloggers.
How did you find out about Huckletree?
Jessica: I was looking for an office to base our company’s first satellite operation out of. I viewed about 20 offices and coworking spaces in Central and East London. A friend told me about Huckletree and so I went to view it and that was that.
What did you like about Huckletree?
I liked the fact the office was spacious but small enough to ensure there was an atmosphere. The flexibility of the contract also appealed to me and the prices were reasonable in comparison to others I had seen in Shoreditch.
How do you like to spend your breaks?
I go for lunch at one of the many amazing restaurants nearby! Huckletree also organises fun workshops with other startups which are always engaging, and coffee stops and meet-ups mean there’s a lot to learn here too.
Top 3 reasons for a Londoner to join Huckletree?
I would say my top 3 reasons are:
1) Area – Farringdon and Clerkenwell are close enough to the fashion and tech hubs and it is a vibrant area. There are great restaurants and it’s very easy to get to Shoreditch and Central London after work; 2) Environment – beautiful and thoughtfully designed and very clean and cool; 3) Culture – there is a mix of expertise here – it’s not just techies, and everyone’s really friendly.
