Don't Just Take Our Word For It!
Startups, Councils, Libraries and the local community all benefit from Wimbletech...
Together we really are stronger!
"Wimbletech is one of the fastest growing and successful council and community backed tech co-working hubs in London. Not only does it provide high quality co-working space for many tech businesses and developers, Wimbletech also provides free community and education events (Hackathons) on Information Technology - delivered by the Wimbletech entrepreneurs.
Founded by David Fletcher, a young internet entrepreneur, who set up Wimbletech to address the high demand for flexible and affordable work space in the Wimbledon area. With support from Merton Council’s Economic Development and Library departments, Wimbletech now has over 130 start-ups & co-workers using the campus - with a long waiting list of businesses wanting to rent space.
Wimbletech is helping create new tech businesses and jobs, and is contributing to the emerging tech cluster in the Wimbledon, SW19 area. Wimbletech is an innovative model which turns under-utilised Library spaces and other public buildings into vibrant tech hubs. The model is now being franchised across London and the UK."
Eric Osei - Business Growth Officer
“The work of Wimbletech is essential to expanding our library service provision in Merton and attracts in different kinds of customers to use our services whilst delivery new and innovative provision. Wimbletech is a key part of the Council’s ‘Inward Investment Strategy’ and they are a key council partner. The model that David and the team have developed is excellent and complements our services well. Wimbletech has developed at a significant rate and it is a model which I could see replicated across the country.”

“Finling moved into the Wimbledon Tech Centre a couple of months ago. We are delighted to have a really good value space right in the centre of Wimbledon, something that would otherwise have been unaffordable for a while to come. This space has enabled me to make a full time hire, and to be able to work closely with my new member of staff as he learns the ropes. Finling has even gained a new client from amongst the WTC user base!”
Jennifer Denning – Director - Finling Associates Ltd
"Since coming to Wimbletech, I have been able to connect with some great people. All are very willing to share their enthusiasm, commercial and technical knowledge. We are all small group of start up entrepreneurs who need to be very savvy at making the most of any opportunity to market and promote our products and services. Since coming to Wimbletech my appreciation of social media marketing has increased and now applying this knowledge has certainly improved my access to new markets and improved my brand."

“The tech campus is a great meeting space for me. As I don't have an office
it's often difficult to meet people. The tech campus has provided me with a
professional meeting space. Furthermore, it helps me to connect with local
businesses and to foster the the collaboration of businesses within the
Claus Geissendoerfer - Prehash
“I feel very fortunate to be a member of Wimbledon Tech Campus. As a solo entrepreneur in Wimbledon, my previous options were to work at home at the kitchen table, or take up space at the local coffee shape; as you can imagine, both of these options severely marginalized my business life.
With the WTC, I now have a proper desk, in a friendly and professional environment, at which I can work each day -- and I love it, and get a lot done! My start up company, HOLISTIC LONDON, which is an online resource for holistic services in London, just launched four weeks ago and is doing well; and I feel assured that, without the supportive environment of WTC, I might never have made this progress.
I feel that Wimbledon Tech Campus is a very important and valuable addition to our community, and it brings new life and professional opportunities to our area. I truly expect that, as it becomes known, this initiative will develop and flourish, and will become an essential element in the lives of many professionals and business people in our area, as it has for me.”
E. J. Shaffert - Holistic London
“Wimbletech is a much needed space in Wimbledon – it has given me the ability to test ideas (and pivot faster!), meet other start-ups (e.g.: Prehash), receive invaluable feedback on products (hour of power!) – it is also a great platform for networking with individuals and organisations in the wider Borough – highly recommend the concept and space”
