ScaleSpace x Upstream: Can your location, and who you are co-locating with, boost innovation?


Admission fee:FREE


September 21, 2021

11:30-12:30 BST

Hybrid event




Location, location and…co-location – why where you are based and who you share the space with matters to unlock innovation.

• Co-location by building and by postcode: what are the benefits of locating your scaleup in a building and a District designed to fuel growth, and where you are actively co-located with like-minded peers at a similar stage of growth?

• University connections fueling innovation: what are the competitive advantages of being ‘university connected’ and why spin-outs from Imperial College London are laying down roots in White City.

• Innovation Districts as growth drivers: Spotlight on White City as an exemplar case for why investment in London and across the UK is needed to create more Innovation Districts to boost the UK’s post-covid recovery.
