Traveltech Lab – a new co-working space for startups
Traveltech Lab simply positions a new co-working space for startups alongside a travel firm’s team of travel and tourism specialists, enabling its participants to have close access to expertise and experience, and the travel firm to have close access to any valuable emerging businesses
Technological innovation is transforming every aspect of how we travel and experience new places. Spring 2014 will see the opening of a new facility in London that provides a global springboard for startups working in these areas.
Located at a spectacular riverside location with views over Tower Bridge the Traveltech Lab offers a high-specification workspace for 35 people on the same floorplate as London & Partners’ team of travel and tourism specialists. The Traveltech Lab is being designed and managed by The Trampery, creators of London’s premier innovation spaces with acclaimed buildings in Shoreditch, Clerkenwell and London Fields.
Disruptive startups in travel, tourism, hospitality and events have been invited to apply for membership of the Traveltech Lab. As well as a superb location and a beautifully-designed working environment the selected startups will be supported with privileged access to senior industry executives, investors, mentors and media through London & Partners unrivalled network. Whether you’re looking for investment, alpha customers, promotion or resellers there’ll be help at hand. The package will be rounded out with regular socials and a programme of events bringing leading figures in to offer advice and inspiration.
You might be building a social platform that helps users pick a restaurant with their friends, a seat pricing algorithm that increases an airline’s profitability, an augmented reality app that raises a visitor’s enjoyment of a city, a network analysis tool that introduces conference attendees to each other, or any one of a million other innovations.
Members will pay a simple monthly fee based on the number of desks they need. All facilities and utilities will be included in the price. Bursaries will be available for especially innovative businesses if they can’t afford the full rate. Members also gain discounted use of a panoramic event space with jaw-dropping views over the river and full TV broadcast facilities.
