Why We Are Different?

LAB is more than just a workspace; it’s a community.

Beyond Coworking

At LAB, our goals stretch beyond coworking. Every business, social enterprise and charity is unique, with different motivations and goals. The community we’ve grown over the last few years spans across many sectors, and we believe that collaboration within our community is essential to helping everyone thrive! That’s why we hold community events, from brunch meet-ups to Friday evening drinks, to make sure our community keeps growing and connecting.

Our Community Is Built On Three Principals

Our Members

LAB is a dynamic workspace, combining the natural energy of coworking with social events designed to encourage networking.

Our Mentors

Our professional connections are what makes us unique; they will collaborate, advise, and help you reach your goals.

The Wider Community

Thanks to our relationship with Capacity, social impact is central to the organisations we help and the support we provide.

Our Network & Mentors

Each new member is provided with a detailed scoping session to ensure that we fully understand each business. This means we can tailor the support we provide; whether that’s full access to mentors and advice, or simply a comfortable, efficient workspace.

Our community of mentors grew from our own personal networks; each connection we make is unique and valuable. All the mentors are experts in their fields, providing high-quality advice and guidance based on their real-world experiences, and specific guidance to enhance your knowledge and connections.
