How does it work?

A quick overview

Start-ups / Micro businesses / Entrepreneurs

Ministry of Startups provides opportunities to help you and the community, we seek out available space so it can be used by startups and small businesses.

It suits startups, freelancers, entrepreneurs and micro businesses who are able and flexible enough to move every once in a while (usually once a year). We find most people are easily able to move in a taxi or zipvan, therefore they are more than happy to do in return for affordable space (resident desk space is between £50 – £195 pcm, thats about 50% normal costs!), plus as they say “a change is as good as a rest!”.


Property owners / Developers

Ministry of Startups works with landowners and developers to deliver projects that help the community and reduce empty property risks and liabilities (vandalism, fire, theft… insurance, rates, security etc), whilst an appropriate commercial planning solution is being sought for vacant space.

Its a triple win; helping the community, helping the future economy and helping the bottom line.

Pay As You Go Desk Space

No minimum contract (helping entrepreneurs get up and running)

Entrepreneurs and micro/small businesses can rent deskspaces on a monthly basis, no long notice periods, 1 month notice is all we require.

We are the affordable space for freelancers and startups, we are able to offer desk space for less than 50% the usual market rate! central London resident desk space prices range from £50 – £195 pcm (all inclusive: Business rates, utilities, internet etc etc).

Helping micro businesses and entrepreneurs, startups, save money and increase their chances of being successful! (not failing).


Where can you find affordable space in London?

We currently have four properties in the heart of Shoreditch and Spitalfields, resident desk prices range from £135 to £250 pcm (all inclusive of rates, internet, utilities etc). We don’t do hot desking, its your own set place.

We will have additional space in more locations asap (within the next month!), providing more affordable space to local entrepreneurs and micro businesses across London, the UK and Europe.
