Andrew Pledger , Ecosystem Manager, Barclays Eagle Labs

Like so many small businesses post Covid we’d forgotten about the value of working in a highly collaborative community of like-minded business professionals. Creativity and generating new ideas, networks and just being around people again in a social environment were all important motivators for us in joining the Barclays Eagle Lab coworking community at Discovery Park.

On a professional and personal level we have benefitted from the opportunity that being here affords us to meet a wealth of new businesses, host our client meetings and work from a fully serviced prestigious office space and take part in the many ongoing fun social activities on offer.
