The offer includes access to workshops and events, drop-in support sessions for your business, access to meeting space and communal hot desking. Which offers plenty of benefits including opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs and collaborate, a place to find focus away from home and gives you the ability to host meetings with clients or partners.

LIFT have access to a number of subsidised desk space to help your business through our partners at Plexal, who have spaces in Shoreditch and Hackney Wick. The offer is as follows:

  • Plexal, Here East, E15 2GW offering hot desk memberships for 6 months at a price of £100+vat per month, this would normally cost £240 per month + VAT.


  • Plexal, Shoreditch, offer access for one day a week for 6 months at £16 a day rather than £30 a day (we only have a small number of these so please be quick as it will be offered on a first come first served basis).
