Economic Stimulus - 21st April 2010 News Image

Our latest Pop Up venture is the innovative new office concept ‘Collective’. Developed from a design partnership including DMA, Conran Design Group and Camden Council, Collective can easily be configured into almost any space and provides rent free space to the hottest new creative businesses in London.

The space, at 37 Camden High Street is open 24-hours a day, to new companies and individuals working in the creative industries, re-affirming Camden Town’s reputation as one of the most dynamic creative business capitals. We have been working with our Member Businesses including MTV, Y&R, Emap, Getty Images and others in the creative sector in Camden Town to source contracts for these tenants, and business development opportunities and mentorships from some of the industry’s most successful individuals.

The high cost of commercial space, particularly office space is acting as a barrier to entry for business to the capital and particularly fro start ups. CTU’s ambition is to make Camden Town one of the most creative districts in London by supporting the development of original, unique and eye-catching businesses. We believe in investing in young talent and encouraging collaboration within our already creatively rich business district. Collective will provide both new and established businesses the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment where they can build contact networks, share knowledge, foster and nurture new talent and together provide a hothouse of new, fresh, creative ideas for Camden Town and beyond.

These small businesses are the MTVs, Y&R and ASOS of the future and we want them to grow up connected with Camden Town.
