Reaching new heights with Innovation in London
UnLondon and Innovation Works join forces

London’s growing entrepreneurship sector has just received another big boost; UnLondon Digital Media Association(UnLondon) and Pillar Nonprofit Network (Pillar) are very excited to announce an agreement that will provide shared space access between 121 Studios, London’s interactive digital media hub and creative co-working space, and Innovation Works, London’s  newest co-working space that is intentionally designed for social innovators and offers over 80 co-tenants from all sectors a place to work and collaborate. UnLondon and Pillar believe that enabling shared space access will increase the number of resources available, and offer a more comprehensive and supportive environment for London’s growing interactive media, tech, creative and social entrepreneurs.

In addition to cross-membership discounts on events and workshops, the unique elements of each space in particular will now be jointly accessible between organizations: UnLondon Creative Members will now enjoy access to meeting and event spaces at Innovation Works. Likewise, members of Innovation Works will now have access to production resources and facilities at 121 Studios, including photo and video production space, audio/podcast studio, and multimedia editing suites.  

“The energy created with this partnership is felt just by walking down King Street. As we bring in more co-tenants in phase two of the project, we are thrilled to provide this expanded offering with UnLondon. Together, we are part of an ever-growing eco-system that is putting London on the map as an entrepreneur’s haven for support, connections and a platform to propel innovation.” - Michelle Baldwin, Executive Director, Pillar Nonprofit Network.

“UnLondon has always been about collaboration and supporting innovation through shared access and driving collective impact. Through this partnership with Innovation Works and Pillar, we look forward to supporting the next wave of innovation and entrepreneurship in downtown London and across our city.” - Titus Ferguson, Executive Director, UnLondon

Together, UnLondon and Pillar aim to foster greater levels of collaboration to drive creative and social innovation in London and across Southwestern Ontario.
