LondonLovesBusiness has recently published an article talking about why Shoreditch is quickly losing it’s foothold as the Tech Hub in London. Our CEO, Simon Hill, was quoted discussing the reasons for establishing Wazoku in Shepherd’s Bush/White City with FIG Village:
Idea management start-up Wazoku is another Shepherd’s Bush-based company that thinks that Shoreditch is a victim of its own branding.“[Shoreditch] is not great office space. It’s putting off people because you’re looking at £300 to £400 a desk a month, in a shared space. If you look at where most of these offices are, half of them are in buildings that are due to be knocked down for being renovated on some kind of short-term rent,” says Simon Hill, co-founder, Wazoku.“Shoreditch is very congested, there is no parking space. However, from our offices in Shepherd’s Bush, we can be with any client in half an hour. Most of our clients like coming to see us because we have convenient parking spots – and clients frankly like that.”
