Startup Guide London

With over 2,000 start-ups, 30 accelerators and 48,000 people employed in the digital economy, London is the beating heart of the European startup scene, and Europe’s number one start-up hotspot. The city supports a culture of creativity and innovation that allows new businesses to be born and to flourish, and creates opportunities for individuals to grow and develop into game-changers and industry leaders.

With fierce competition to lead development between different areas in the city, a plethora of co-working spaces, accelerators and incubators, and a fast-paced culture that combines social time with learning and networking opportunities, London has a lot to offer potential startups and their employees.
