This weekend past, I read an article in the newspaper about the recent sale of Tweetdeck to Twitter for a deal worth $40 million. One of the things that enabled Tweetdeck as a business to get to this position was the collective consciousness they had from sharing a building with bunch of other entrepreneurs.
It meant that they were able to share in the buzz, the atmosphere and the collective business and creative experience of all the other individuals in that space. The space became known as the Silicon Roundabout and has become an attractive proposition for investors from Silicon Valley looking for a UK base.
We’re not saying that we are the next Silicon Roundabout but every resident at FunkBunk benefits from being part of a collective that is stronger than it’s individuals alone. I hear ideas being discussed everyday that have the potential to be the next Tweetdeck. Just by working in the same space there is inspiration all around and the resource to make the ideas come to life.
For those sick of shuffling from coffee shop to coffee shop, struggling to get a wi-fi connection, working in isolation and struggling to kickstart their ideas, places like FunkBunk are definitely the way forward.
The article from the Guardian is well worth a read. Check it out here.
