What our members say

Accelerator is more than an office space – it’s an active community and network of startups and support.

Gemma Young, Co-Founder and CEO, Settled

Accelerator is a place where the community actually does matter.  It’s one big family. People help each other out, no matter what you need, more often than not there’ll be someone who can help. You have lots of flexibility depending what size space you need, your in the hub of Tech City and the people are great.

Nick Miller, Founder of BuzzHire

Accelerator has been a fantastic home for us and we will be very sad to say goodbye when we leave. The team do a great job bringing every company together, sharing ideas and making staff feel loved with the regular social gatherings.

Dan Stevenson, Co-Founder and MD, Ampere Analysis

Accelerator is a great community that helped our business through a tough transitional period. Without it the great progress we have achieved since wouldn’t have gone nearly as smoothly or quickly.

Arun Thangavel, Co-Founder, Hollabox

Being in a community of like-minded entrepreneurs motivates me every day. The energy, passion and ambition is felt everywhere. Regular social events, founders dinners, and community support is what makes Accelerator an awesome place to go to every day.

Ilona Filipi, Founder and CEO,

Being at Accelerator has allowed me and my team to feel part of something much bigger, making it easier to attract talent and grow our company.

Carl Partridge, Founder and CEO, UrbanThings

Accelerator is a unique place. The team here have created an environment conducive for sharing and exchanging ideas and solutions, with regular networking and facilitation from meeting investors, corporates and each other.

Dan Somers, CEO, Warwick Analytics

We love Accelerator as they have managed to create a friendly workspace which fosters partnerships. We’ve received great support from the Accelerator team. I can’t thank them enough!

Komal Sable, Director, Kble Ltd

Without doubt the best thing about Accelerator is the community. This isn’t some soulless serviced office, but a hub of entrepreneurs growing their businesses together in the heart of Shoreditch. 

Lucidica wouldn’t be where it is without Accelerator. We feel we’re intertwined with them – they’re not landlords, but partners in our challenges and success.”

Tom Jeffs, Founder and CEO, Lucidica
