Who are Verizon?

A Unique Co-Working Innovation
The venture is unique within such a market and provides an amazing opportunity for start-ups and small businesses to gain insight, professional knowledge and advice as well as creating the potential for new business connections and opportunities.

The new building will gather large businesses, SME’s and exciting new start-ups all under one roof creating a unique and incomparable work space with huge benefits to everyone involved.
Work.Life’s Director Elliot Gold wrote in his recent blog, ‘Digital connection and innovation is even more powerful when combined with the creativity and connections driven by human collaboration that a brand like Work.Life brings.’ Combining these two companies who have different cultures and different values brings about a unique and powerful force for business and associates.
Londonoffices talked with Grace Burrows, from Work.Life and asked what the new London office space for rent and collaboration meant for Work.Life, ‘The partnership with Verizon means a lot of exciting things which may be important to different people for different reasons. Immediately, we will see super-fast internet, which is key to a high functioning co-working space! Verizon also have an investment partner, Verizon Ventures, who are predominantly US based and are looking to introduce themselves to the UK scene. It is all exciting stuff plus the location and design is great, our best yet!’

‘Bridging the Gap’ Events
As part of the celebrations for the new initiative a variety of events will be taking place under the title of ‘bridging the gap’.
During our conversation with Grace she explained what they hope to achieve, ‘Verizon staff and clients are also very keen to get involved with events, so we are curating an events programme at the moment with General Assembly looking at ‘The Future of Tech’ and opening up the conversation of how corporates and start-ups can better work together and learn from each other, launching on May 8th.’
Planned events include MAC makeup master-classes, member spotlight session with YunoJuno, a collaboration workspace meet-up and much more. Key-note speakers from both small businesses and Verizon will be attending the events.
