Second Home is a workplace of the future

Person planning

Rohan Silva, a former adviser to David Cameron, has opened Second Home, a £3m 24,000 sq ft office space off London's Brick Lane which is dedicated to providing space for technology start-ups and creative entrepreneurs. The funders of the venture include White Star Capital and Santander, which is launching a $100m fund to invest in financial tech firms. The idea of Second Home is to cater for creative companies that need flexible space for between five and 25 employees and offer the kind of office experience that tech giants provide. Second Home houses 23 hand-picked companies from tech, finance and media, including US digital elections specialist Blue State Digital. The project's investors including former Goldman Sachs chief economist Jim O'Neill have put £4m into a plan to open Second Homes around the world. The company has signed the lease for a similar site in Hackney, which will host fashion companies, graphic designers and architects.
