At our core, we are a young team of forward thinking individuals from all different backgrounds coming together to help entrepreneurs from all walks of life to start and grow their businesses.
We are based in Old Street, the heart of London's startup culture and our team, community and mentors are currently 90 strong!
We saw that there was a shortage of affordable space for entrepreneurs between idea stage and their first round of funding. The only other options were Accelerators, which aren’t right for everybody, or expensive office spaces with overpriced coffee!
From there, our founder Eddie Holmes started working on an idea that would eventually become Launch22.
Core Team Values
We solved that problem by offering an affordable space to share ideas and work. Along with that, we provide our members events and mentoring opportunities which have been designed to help foster business development.
We’re a registered charity, so we offer 30% of our space for free, giving people from disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to start a business.
Our London teams average age is 22. A passion for starting up a business and a keen interest in understanding how things can be improved is of ample importance.
We like to describe Launch22's environment like a sandpit. You can create and build up whatever you like in your time here, it just depends on your drive and creativity!
Our Old St site was opened after our original founder wanted to create an open environment where people could speak freely about their ideas and not in a coffee shop
We partnered with social enterprise Catch22 and began expanding our offer to more businesses and entrepreneurs looking for a new kind of co-working space
After a period of sustained growth, we were excited to expand and eventually opened a second co-working site in Liverpool with added capacity to house even more businesses
We've just re-partnered with Catch22, who are taking us on and looking to help us carry on growing our co-working and incubation offerings to startups in the UK

We hire young people who are as driven and excited as we are to create places where exciting companies can be nurtured and grow.
