In collaboration with the Corporation of London, the project was for an incubator to assist the growth of new businesses. Entrepreneurs are the driving force of the next new economy. Paul Vick architects have enjoyed working with both private and institutional entrepreneurs. The start-up innovation hub has catalysed a number of ideas raising next stage finance and growth into larger companies all in the heart of London.
