Our new neighbourhood has been getting a lot of press recently and has been dubbed “Silicon Roundabout” by the media due to the fact that Old Street Roundabout is the gateway to one of the most vibrant business districts in London.
We recently did our own survey and found upwards of 90 marketing services agencies within a stone’s throw of our Curtain Road home. Although that shows us we are in a competitive market (no news there), it also shows we are in the right place to feed off the buzz and innovation that is going on in Shoreditch. We’d rather be at the heart of our industry rather than at the periphery!
A Recent analysis by Bloomberg has estimated that the converted warehouses in and around Shoreditch are crammed with technology start-ups at – least 300. Established technology players are moving in Google recently opened Campus London, a kind of clubhouse for digital entrepreneurs, not far from the roundabout.
With a 4.5% contribution to the UK GDP (up 2.8% since 2008 – Bloomberg), we certainly feel we are in the right place to ride the wave.
