It’s been a long journey but the first tenants of Futurelabs are now through the door and settling in at their new home.

Just a few short weeks ago Futurelabs was just a shell of a space with very little in it. Now we are a fully functioning co-working space that businesses can be productive, collaborate and grow. Our first few tenants include DotForge, Herd and The Social Media Geek.

DotForge is med-tech pre-seed, accelerator assisting new start-ups in bringing their business ideas to fruition and securing funding to help grow their business. The accelerator supports entrepreneurs from Futurelabs to help ensure their success.

Our second new tenant includes Leeds technology focused job board Herd.Careers. The Herd team aims to connect up all things digital in Leeds helping businesses to source talent without recruiter fees that so many SMEs struggle with. Herd also runs regular job fairs in Leeds, boosting the profile of our city nationally.

Finally in this rag-tag bunch, we have The Social Media Geek AKA Becky Boyd. Becky works with Herd and has a selection of her own clients who are tech SMEs in and around Leeds. In between all this, Becky is also a team leader & trainer for Google’s Digital Garage project, offering free training all over the country. If you hadn’t already guessed, Becky has also joined the Futurelabs team as our marketing manager.

We are very excited to have our first tenants on board at Futurelabs and cannot welcome even more. If you are interested in securing your own desk at Futurelabs, contact us now to book a tour!
