The project aims to accelerate social entrepreneurship, by the reactivation of a previously underused site in Loughborough Junction, South London. “Supported by the Mayor’s London Regeneration Fund, we’re building a new campus-style enterprise hub, offering a variety of affordable workspaces, including a food business incubator, studios, creative workspaces, co-working offices and individual and shared workshops, as well as a programme of on-site business support and training activities.” (Source:
