Digital disruption is here to stay. Within five years it’s estimated four of today’s top ten incumbents in every industry will have been displaced, while many digital businesses struggle to access the expertise and opportunities they need to grow.

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 the UK’s leading digital venture builder, Blenheim Chalcot.

Located within Imperial College’s White City Innovation District, Scale Space will be home to the next generation of Blenheim Chalcot scale-up businesses, as well as Imperial College Business School. Scale Space gives you unique access to an ecosystem designed to encourage and support innovation and 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.
