We spoke to Hubble, the Shoreditch-based start-up providing flexible workspace options in the UK and challenging Fortune 500 companies to think seriously about how they use their space.
Who are Hubble?
Hubble is a platform that helps you find flexible office space in London, whether you’re looking for a single desk or a private office for your business. We’ve got the widest selection of exclusive inventory out there, as well as your usual suspects.
How did Hubble start?
Hubble was founded in 2014 by Tushar Agarwal and Tom Watson with the mission to disrupt a slow and inflexible industry – that of renting commercial property. Seeing how painful it could be to find office space, Hubble decided to make this process quick, easy and painless by empowering people to freely search as well as introduce transparent pricing and focusing on flexible, plug-and-play office space.
Who can use the platform?
Everyone! Hubble caters for freelancers, startups and SME’s as well as bigger businesses. If you’re looking for an office in London, whatever your requirements and business size, we can help (and we’ll never charge you).
Can I really rent a desk by the hour?
You can! Many coworking spaces rent out desks on an hourly basis which is ideal if you’re in town for a meeting, have a client meeting or just need some serious down time to focus.
Where do you hope to be in 5 years time?
In five years time, we aim to be the world’s first artificially intelligent (AI) commercial real estate company, using machine learning on huge datasets to most accurately match businesses with spaces that we’re confident they’ll love to work in.
We’ll also be global – not just helping UK freelancers and startups – but Fortune 500 companies, who realise that the world is shifting under their feet and they need change how they use space in order to keep up.
What makes you different from other space-sharing platforms?
First of all we have a lot of exclusive inventory you won’t find anywhere else. We spend day and night sourcing the coolest and most unique office space there is. Secondly, we utilize rich emotive data to match you with the right office. We realise that if you are going to love where you work, location and desk size is not everything – you want the right feeling, culture and facilities to make your team the happiest they can be and to guarantee the success of your business.
Where are you currently operating?
We’re based in Shoreditch, close to a lot of our office providers and customers as well as endless lunch choices and excellent after work drink options.
