Why did you choose to set up / expand in London?

London is such a rich and varied ecosystem in which businesses cannot only take root, but thrive. The city offers diversity, international reach and talent from around the world. All of these are important to us for developing as a business - whether it's attracting and keeping top talent, to expanding our reach and growing the business.

Additionally, its position between the U.S, the Middle East and continental Europe mean that we have a friendly time zone for collaborating as a global team.

How did London & Partners help your company set up / expand?

London & Partners helped us get established in London by recommending the best locations and offices for us to consider during our move from Richmond, Surrey. They knew our company culture and values well and ensured that our office location would not only match these values, but help us flourish here in London.

London & Partners continue to help us through their network and knowledge of the London landscape by brokering introductions to other tech companies and most recently, suggesting the perfect venue for our largest customer event in the UK.
