What is IDEALondon?

IDEALondon stands for Innovation and Digital Enterprise Alliance London.

A fancy name, with a simple aim: to give digital and media startups a boost.

Our support will include office space, expertise, relationships and contacts. Plus, the resources these startups need to get fired up and ready to take on the world of business. IDEALondon is not just another co-working facility. Instead, it is a place where young businesses can come to get the best available support in taking their business to the next level.

Alongside this, IDEALondon will be a node on Cisco's National Virtual Incubator network. It can also be used by the wider Tech City community for events, such as workshops on intellectual property (IP) protection and how to pitch for funding from offshore investors.

Getting Involved

Even the biggest business empire started somewhere. Yours could start here.

If your startup needs access to world-leading business acceleration programmes and facilities in the heart of London's Tech City, then you're in the right place. We've called it IDEALondon, and it's been created by Cisco, DC Thomson and University College London. Each partner has a three-year commitment to offering these fully-connected office facilities, business acceleration, mentoring and support programmes, and a wide variety of digital expertise to help you build the foundations of your future success.

So how could you get the keys to the door - and to your future success?

  • Come in and see us.

    You can simply walk in to 69 Wilson Street in Shoreditch and tell us about your business. We're always receptive and we'll let you know there and then whether you might fit our eligibility criteria. From that point on, it will be up to one of the IDEALondon Partners to decide whether they will champion you in becoming an IDEALondon resident - generally for a fixed period of six months.
  • Or we'll call you.

    Unlike other business development programmes, each of the three partners will be making approaches to startup companies that are already on their radar.
