For those that want to stay ahead of the curve, innovation and digital reinvention is critical. But it can’t happen in silos. Today’s companies need to break away from the traditional concept of separate departments and position themselves within a network of ideas, expertise and experience. They need to give their business the innovation space it needs.
Scale Space is the new innovation space for London, bringing together the best research, talent and business-building expertise from Imperial College London and Blenheim Chalcot.
Based inside White City Campus - Imperial’s research and innovation district - businesses are at the forefront of research and thinking on new technologies, like AI and machine learning. And, working alongside Blenheim Chalcot, the UK’s leading digital venture builder, businesses have access to the support they need to turn innovation into growth.
As well as providing space for new, high-growth, high-technology companies, the £50 million Scale Space will house parts of Imperial and many of Blenheim Chalcot’s businesses, which currently include Agilisys, Clearscore, SalaryFinance, Fospha and ModulR.
The plan for Scale Space is to be at the forefront of co-location ideology and contemporary office design to capture the attention of digital and high-tech companies. There will be a number of shared amenity and collaboration areas for businesses to connect and grow together. Meeting rooms, event spaces and an onsite café will help fuel creative thought.
Welcoming the announcement of the joint venture in February 2018, Matt Hancock MP - Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport - said “This ambitious project will help cement London’s position as Europe’s tech capital and is another vote of confidence in our world-leading digital economy”.
At Scale Space, we are in a unique position to bring together the know-how and global networks of two leading organisations, and our goal is to help cement the UK’s position as a creator of the next wave of global tech titans.
Co-Founder, Blenheim Chalcot
“Scale Space at White City Campus will be a destination for many of Blenheim Chalcot’s businesses and we look forward to it being a centre of great innovation and entrepreneurship, leveraging leading edge research and talent from Imperial College London for our businesses and many others.
