At the heart of the Launch It concept are our Enterprise Centres.  Each Centre provides workspace and targeted support for budding young entrepreneurs to get their business up and running. The Centres are managed by our SFEDI Accredited Enterprise Managers who are on hand to provide  timely advice and support to each business.

We combine this support with our two year incubation programme that includes subsidised rent and easy access to events and training to enable entrepreneurs to establish their business. Rent starts at 50%of local comparable commercial rent, rising to 100% over the course of the programme. After the two year period the young entrepreneur will vacate their unit for another new start up and be supported to move into commercial premises.

The Enterprise Centre creates a space where new businesses have the opportunity to collaborate, share knowledge, best practice, network and create business opportunities. Our entrepreneurs can talk to one another, share ideas and learning, and socialise. They can collaborate and join forces for projects and experiment and grow together.

 

We are now taking our successful model and experience and sharing it across the UK. By enabling our young entrepreneurs to work where they live, we help them develop local enterprise and create employment opportunities in their communities. 

Launch It London is where it all began…

 

We opened our doors to our first cohort of budding entrepreneurs in 2000. 18 years, 11 centres and 1500 new businesses later we now have four centres in Tottenham, Peckham and Merton providing a combination of shared workspace and over 45 individual units.

TGEC

Our head office in Tottenham celebrates its 10 year anniversary this year. The Tottenham Green Enterprise Centre is in a fantastic position on Tottenham Green, a short walk from Seven Sisters tube station.

 

TGEC is our second largest centre, offering a range of 30 different sized office spaces for start-up businesses. Located just off the High Road that runs through Tottenham, the building was originally built in 1901 as a fire station.

 

It is long established as an entrepreneurial hub for Tottenham and has a combination of commercial and incubation business spaces available.

639 Centre

The 639 Centre was regenerated in 2012 with Greater London Authority funds following the riots and the feeling of despair in the area. Launch It London (known at that time as London Youth Support Trust) took on the 3-year tender of this building for this time and the subsequent tender that brings us to today. 

As of October 2018 we have brought in a partner organisation, the Trampery, who will be managing the commercial elements of this building. We will continue to support and manage our young entrepreneurs through our 2 year incubation programme operating here.
