Plexal is the innovation company and coworking space that turbocharges collaboration.
Our story started back in 2012, when the Olympic Games created an opportunity to build a new technology hub for east London – with a difference.
The vision for Here East was to enable creatives, universities and technology-led businesses of all sizes to not just sit side by side, but create and innovate together. A place where differences aren’t tolerated, but exploited.
And Plexal is the campus’ innovation nerve centre.
Our innovation team forges connections between industry, academia, investors, startups and scaleups.
From enabling Transport for London procure innovation from startups more quickly to helping 72 startups raise over £200m through our LORCA cyber accelerator, learn more about our projects.
We’re home to over 800 innovators who are working in areas like mobility, AI, healthtech, cybersecurity, fintech, the Internet of Things, VR and more.
They enjoy community events, access to the Eagle Lab at Plexal makers’ space and services designed to help them scale.
