We're a Tech Hub
providing Coworking, Events and Mentoring for Startups
We provide the full range of services needed to grow your tech startup and a thriving community of like-minded
individuals - all on the same journey.
We cater for startups of all sizes - from those at the start of their journey (with either an idea or an early prototype) to more established businesses and freelancers.
Futurelabs offers a vibrant tech community where members can work, exchange ideas, network and have a bit of fun while doing it.
Because the people who run the hub have been there, we know you like things to be easy and not take up too much headspace. So our packages are simple, fixed price and... all on month-by-month contracts - so if your situation changes - you can too!
Permanent desk space available 24x7x365 at an all inclusive monthly rental - including superfast wifi, bottomless tea and coffee and free meeting room hire.
Get a head start by using our pro-bono mentoring scheme. We match the right mentors with the right businesses - all delivered by experienced industry mentors or from leading professional firms providing pro-bono advice.
Work from the hub for up to 2 days a week and be part of a supportive and active community - all for an all inclusive monthly fee which includes superfast wifi, bottomless tea and coffee and meeting room hire.
We have a wide range of technical meetups providing interesting talks and support on technical themes ranging from Agile to Java, WordPress and C#. We also have a range of networking meetups - including our Founders Friday event where you can hear from 3-4 interesting startups with beer and networking.
Dedicated offices for startups embedded right inside the community. Offices are on flexible terms and are available 24x7x365 at an all inclusive monthly rental - including superfast wifi, bottomless tea and coffee and free meeting room hire.
Our Futurestart programme is a pre-accelerator which provides a masterclass over 6 weeks to get startups with either just an idea or an early concept/prototype to the stage where they know what is involved in starting and growing their business.
Futurelabs is the perfect place for us to be. The access they provide to the digital community here in Leeds, particularly through all the meet-up groups is vital to the success of what we do.Crispin Read, User Crunch
Here's a flavour of our amazing community...
We sold out our first phase of the coworking facilities in our Eastgate Tech Hub in Leeds... 🙁
So we opened up some more!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
We couldn't let anyone down, so we've worked day and night to deliver another 15 desks in our coworking facility which is proving really popular.
Our community of coworkers are really active and supportive (fuelled we must say with as much tea and coffee as they can drink!) - so it's a great compliment to them that the desk are proving so popular.
Just let us know if you want to have a look round and see what we have - or alternatively come and work from the hub for a day on one of our FREE taster days.
See you soon!Read Morearrow_forward
The Tech Off: Creatives VS Coders
The ‘lovechild of TED talks and WWE wrestling’ attracts over 650 people at its London events. With previous battles taking place at Cannes Lions, Festival of Marketing, and DMX Dublin, the Tech Off next rolls into @SXSW and then Leeds.
Come and cheer on leading speakers from both teams as they give powerful, five minute trash talks (why they love their jobs), with the aim of winning over the gladiatorial crowd – who then chooses the winner! The champ takes away The Tech Off Wrestling Belt Of Digital Glory… (not an actual belt FYI).
Who will win the popular vote? The Creatives? Or the Coders?
Grab your tickets to watch the battle!
FutureStart is a startup lab powered by Futurelabs.
