TechHub, a European community and workspace for tech entrepreneurs, has moved into North America to help UK and European businesses take on the US market.
The newly-launched TechHub Boston “will provide technology entrepreneurs with a supportive, collaborative environment of like-minded teams working exclusively on tech products,” announced the start-up network.
“TechHub membership tackles the isolation entrepreneurs can feel starting their own businesses, and helps them to learn more about investment opportunities, advances in technology and enhancing their commercial skills.”
Elizabeth Varley, founder and global chief executive officer (CEO) of TechHub added: “Our vision is to provide strategic locations for technology entrepreneurs around the world. There’s no doubt that London has become Europe’s leading place for technology innovation.
“But as our start-ups grow, they often look towards the States for its large market of early adopters and investment expertise to boost their growth. With 53 higher education institutions in Boston and a venture capital [VC] community twice the size of its European equivalent, we already have TechHub members excited about how TechHub Boston can help them straight away.
“We believe that collaboration between London and Boston will add significant value to both startup communities. Boston has historically been hugely successful as a place to build enterprise startups, with London’s Tech City driven by its creative community, so there’s real opportunity for TechHub members in London and Boston to learn from each other.”
