University of Leicester to Establish Co-Working Space


The University of Leicester is to open a brand-new working space which could have huge benefits to business loan borrowers of The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity.

After months of planning, the go-ahead has been given to establish a co-working space operated by the University of Leicester within the city itself. A collaboration of the university, Leicester’s local start-up business community, local businesses themselves, Leicester City Council and De Montfort University; the co-working space is expected to make a difference to those engaged in early start-ups in addition to entrepreneurs, freelancers, professionals, social entrepreneurs and changemakers, who will be able to have the space to work, connect, collaborate, learn and grow.

The latest development will provide further opportunities for start-ups to progress into grow-on spaces available within the city in the form of partner spaces including Dock, DMU’s Innovation Centre, LCB Depot, Phoenix, Makers Yard, Friars Mill and Business Box.

University of Leicester is currently welcoming expressions of interest from potential users.
