Bringing innovators together at Plexal
Based in our Press Centre building, Plexal is our innovation centre and coworking space. Collaboration is at the heart of its approach. Plexal’s innovation team delivers programmes for clients like Innovate UK and Transport for London, and specialises in connecting industry, academia, investors, startups and scaleups to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing society.
Plexal supports inclusion through OpenDoor and the Social Inclusion Unit, while its cyber team is delivering the London Office for Rapid Cybersecurity Advancement (LORCA): a three-year innovation programme scaling cybersecurity solutions.
The Plexal workspace
Designed as a ‘mini-city’ (it has its own indoor park, high street and indoor street food stand), startup and scaleup members of Plexal’s workspace come together for regular community events and benefit from on-site professional services. They’re also taking advantage of Eagle Lab at Plexal: Barclays’ flagship workshop with 3D printers and a VR/AR zone where innovators can prototype solutions and get ready for Industry 4.0.
