You can tell it’s Shoreditch because the cafe is full of bearded twenty-somethings wielding Macs and they’re roasting their own coffee downstairs – but they’re out of tea. Which is probably a good thing, because any more caffeine and my heart is likely to burst out of my chest.

Being a digital nomad is all well and good, but it does have some downsides. Not least of which is a lack of places to meet people who aren’t laptop toting entrepreneurs. Sometimes you need to pretend you’re a grownup company.

But office space in London is not cheap, not least by Liverpool Street station. So having access to a desk and a meeting room at the TechEast Embassy is a real boon. Especially when the price of membership makes it a no-brainer.

Tech Marionette is an online company. With no offices, and staff distributed across Europe, we meet and interact on the web. Access to co-working spaces like Whitespace and the TechEast Embassy provide us with a base when we need it. It allows us to meet as a company, or meet prospective clients.

But it’s more than that. Access to the co-working space gives us access to other startups, which mean people to bounce ideas off, and a beachhead into the vibrant London startup scene. And all just round the corner from the train station.
