We have been offered a preview tour of Level 39, one of Europe's largest FinTech Accelerator spaces that will launch in Q1/13. It's the entire 39th floor of One Canada Square at Canary Wharf and is currently being prepared to a very high standard, it also has amazing views.
I had a private tour yesterday with Eric Van Der Kleij, former chief executive of the Tech City Investment Organisation and now advisor to the Canary Wharf Group, and it was really impressive. A complete floor, some 29,000 square feet of event space, hotdesks, lounges, dedicated spaces and rooms from just 2 desks up to many more, all for FinTech Innnovation and although the prices are not yet finalised Eric assures me that it will be accessible to early stage companies as well as corporates.
If you're a FinTech Entrepreneur you really need to understand what this new facility has to offer as it enters the London FinTech ecosystem.
The event is free but as we only have a very limited number of places and 800+ Members I am asking for a fully refundable attendance deposit. If you fail to attend we will donate your deposit spend your deposit in a bar afterwards. I'll also arrange for a photographer to join us and we are also discussing running one of our events in the space later next year which will enable many more of you to look around.
