Is London Big Enough For A Second Startup Hub?

A Roman bull plaque. Ten thousand accessioned finds have been discovered at the site. This is the largest assemblage of small finds to have ever been recovered on a single excavation in London.

A bone sword handle. A Roman woven basket. Some 3,500 tonnes of soil have been excavated by hand. That amounts to 21,000 barrows of spoil (soil). A Roman tiled floor. Some 75,000 man hours have been spent excavating and recording the extraordinary archeology on site. Timber foundation beams from a Roman building. A Roman timber drain. Complex Roman drainage systems used to discharge waste from industrial buildings into the Walbrook River. Mithras column, part of a previously undiscovered section of the Temple of Mithras. The Temple and finds from the current excavation will become part of a publicly accessible exhibition within Bloomberg’s European headquarters. The first excavation of the Temple of Mithras excavation in 1954 by eminent archaeologist W.F.

Weve got a huge space. Weve got a Muay Thai boxing gym in here, so we have two boxing rings in the office people find it quite quirky. If were going to meet clients, then the fact that we can show them an interesting space that isnt just four desks in a really expensive Shoreditch office gives us some more credibility, Hill says. And The Downsides If Hill and other West London startups have the classic advantages of the gentrification pioneer big, character filled spaces in which to create he also faces some of the same challenges. The biggest one? Imminent interest in the transforming neighborhood that will shift the real estate market once again. FIGs warehouse home is slated for demolition in the next few years to make way for an expansion of the shopping center that also serves as its landlord, so the incubator is already making plans for a move. Were already looking for where might the next big warehouse project is that we can take over and bring in even more exciting businesses, Hill says. That might be a hassle for the companies in FIG Village, but its good news for the city, Hill feels. I certainly think West London is changing. The Chelsea/Kensington area is trying to make a push for having some level of tech presence as well, as is Notting Hill, he reports. Its a testament to how much is going on in London writ large that people are not just concentrated in a one-mile square area. So will the growing prominence of West London startups create a new hub to rival Silicon Roundabout in the east?

NFLPA believes it can block a move to London

They are not going to be willing to play for franchise that (to the players) essentially plays all of its games on the road. The NFL cant even land a franchise in Los Angeles, our nations second largest city. Why the infatuation with London? iamthegreatcornflorio says: Oct 2, 2013 8:23 AM The field at Wembley measures 160 by 300 feet, the same as in any other NFL stadium. How is that a change in workplace conditions? dspyank2k11 says: Oct 2, 2013 8:26 AM Good if London wants a team (or Goodell wants a team in London) they can start their own league. Its crazy to have a team over there. tigersfandan says: Oct 2, 2013 8:28 AM I hope they can (and do) block it. bottleknockers says: Oct 2, 2013 8:44 AM Ive often thought the best way to get football in London or LA, short of a team moving, is to have a series a 4 games at each site a year, 8 games total. That would be 16 teams each year traveling to neutral site. 8 of those teams would lose a home date. So you setup a rotation where each team travels to either LA or LON every other year, and you lose a home game every 4th year.
