Call us biased, but we think East Anglia is one of the best places in the UK to run a tech company. The firms based here benefit from a supportive network of local meetup groups, and a number of world-class universities sparking innovation. It’s also a beautiful part of the world, with a high quality of life.

While tech firms thrive in East Anglia, some things never change: London remains the UK’s tech focal point. According to the Tech Nation Report, London is “second only to Silicon Valley for global connections”.

There’s no escaping the fact that businesses seeking national success need to travel further afield from time to time, most likely to the capital. Research published in City A.M. reveals that London remains Europe’s top city for business travel – even despite Brexit.

No matter how much we love the East, it’s unlikely London will lose its crown any time soon. That’s why we offer our members hot-desking and meeting rooms at our London Embassy as just one of many Tech East perks.

When we ask members why they joined us, our London Embassy is often cited as one of the biggest draws. To make this perk even better, we have just changed the provider of our London Embassy: Tech East members can now enjoy the stylish and relaxed facilities at Runway East.
