So Tech City, in the heart of London’s East End welcomes Google as its newest resident.
Google is to open a multimillion-pound “technology community centre” in London’s East End, as part of the government’s plans to create a Tech City in the capital. The seven-floor building will act as a shared space for the growing cluster of internet companies based in the heart of London’s so-called “Silicon Roundabout”, the internet giant said.

Cogs recently went along to an Incubator Event through Accelerator-London where Eric Van Der Kleij CEO of Tech City Investment was speaking. Tech City Investment is responsible for bringing investment into London and Shoreditch in particular and it was great to see so many start-ups there giving their voice and opinion as to what should be happening (getting rid of the term Silicon Roundabout will be a great start)
