North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Campus North officially Best Workplace in Britain

Screen Shot 2016-06-08 at 09.53.20Campus North, home to the North East’s tech community, has been named the Best British Workplace 2016.
Just two years old, Campus North is home to accelerator programme Ignite as well as offering hot-desking, co-working, offices, meetings and events space. Campus North is independent, funded entirely through its members and sponsorship, with no public funding or grants.
The shortlisted spaces for the awards run by Adzuna were visited by independent judge Robin Klein, who has been involved in successful tech companies including Lastminute.com, LoveFilm, moo.com and Zoopla.
In awarding the prize to Campus North, Adzuna highlighted that, “It was the genuine sense of community on display at Campus North that really blew our judge away. The shared workspace has hosted hundreds of events, including student careers sessions, tech industry gatherings for the likes of Virgin Money, and events focussed on Women in Tech / STEM.
Klein also hailed the space for its importance to the tech scene in Newcastle, recognising that similar spaces around the country are vital if strong startup communities are to thrive outside the capital.”
Campus North Co-founder Lyndsey Britton said, “We’re ecstatic at winning this accolade. We know that people who come to work, learn and meet up at Campus North love it and are very supportive of all we do and it’s always been a driver to build a real supportive, collaborative community here in the North East. To have what we do recognised nationally is fantastic and helps put us firmly on the map.”
