We’ll try not to get too political with you, but the word is pretty nuts and at times can feel like the society we live in isn’t fair. We want to challenge that by creating our version of a fairer and more circular economy. We believe in providing workspaces which reflect the size and stage of a businesses journey and acknowledge the work they are putting in to make the world a little less nuts! That’s why we created ‘Future Enterprise’ spaces, to champion all the mega G’s out there looking to make a difference. Entrepreneurs fighting climate change or coding smart apps that improve our lives, enterprises campaigning for a greener planet, eco product developers, sustainable warriors, R&D groups for insect farming, local community and charity heroes looking after those in need. YOU, our friends...are the future.
Further information on Future Enterprise Spaces can be found here
* Please note all 2022 Future Enterprise spaces are currently occupied but we will be taking more applications in Summer 2023.
MAKE IT Residents receive a free use allocation across all of meeting rooms and hire spaces. In addition, remember all those mega G's we mentioned doing cool stuff to make the world a better place?....well, you do too. We offer FOC use of the Meeting Rooms, Event Space, Fitness & Wellness, Photography & Film and Recording Studios for an allocated amount of hours per month (a third of their opening hours to be precise) What's the criteria? Your activity must be free for people to attend and must have a positive social purpose. Need some examples? An individual or organisation delivering FOC wellness sessions to young people, a charity fundraiser for a local cause, a student photography mentoring session, a voiceover recording for a Social Enterprise campaign, a CV writing session supporting underrepresented members of society get back into work? You get the drift.
We have limited parking available. Please speak to us to find out if we have availability.
No matter who we are in life or in business, we all need a helping hand right? MAKE IT facilitate Business Support to those who would like it, and equally we welcome the redistribution of support from those who have it to give. As a MAKE IT resident, you’re invited to share skills, insight and training in your specialist field or skill with your fellow residents…flip it 360 and you’ll receive exactly the same back in whatever field or skill you’d like to develop. The best thing? It's free...win win! The goal is to create an organic form of Business Support that doesn't feel forced and to alleviate the sometimes costly need for SMEs to outsource growth services when more often than not, the answers are right there under one roof and better understood and received when delivered by our friends and neighbours.
Alongside this organic peer to peer approach, MAKE IT also run regular workshops, events and and training sessions from a range of industry professionals in a variety of creative and business sectors for our residents to attend.
MAKE IT London are a small but mighty team of individuals driven by the magic that happens when people share space. We reimagine environments with a mission to create affordable spaces that encourage ideas. We provide a 360-degree service from design and refurbishment of assets through to enterprise sourcing, community outreach, event curation and operation. We work alongside local authorities, landlords and communities, listening to local aspirations for increased socio-economic value. We're not a social enterprise, charity or community interest company...we just think it's really cool when inclusivity, accessibility and creativity come together.
Rent a workspace or desk with us, shoot a music video, record a podcast, find your zen in a yoga class, attend an event, host an event, sip a coffee or sink a double at the bar...everything and everyones welcome!
If you're a landlord, local authority or developer and are looking for a new opportunity, we're always on the look out for new projects. Maybe you've got a building, plot of land or development opportunity which you would like us to bring to life we’d love to hear from you.
