London is widely regarded as the gateway to the European markets, and this has never been more evident with the recent influx of tech companies, for whom international expansion is on the agenda much sooner in the lifecycle.
Knight Frank have been working in close partnership with our colleagues on the East and West Coasts of the States, and with London and Partners, to provide the softest possible landing to businesses who have decided to make that leap across the pond.
We have a specialist team that works exclusively with tech companies, that understands the real estate challenges facing high growth companies and can propose bespoke solutions to suit their needs.
We are tech enthusiasts ourselves - far removed from the grey haired, suited and booted, 'stuck in their ways', 'old-school' property advisor. Our team is embedded in London's tech and creative hub. We are a source of innovation for Knight Frank and we deliberately seek to break the mould, looking for better solutions for our business and our clients'.
If you are thinking about making the move to London, feel free to get in touch - we'll be happy to talk to you about the London and help you work out what will be best for your business here.
The UK is Europe's most desirable technology hub for global tech workers. Not only can the UK now make this boast but it can also place itself alongside New York and San Francisco as one of the world's top three technology hubs. This is according to a poll which found that mobile, global tech workers would prefer to relocate to London over other rival tech hubs in Europe such as Berlin and Paris. What has made London so appealing is a combination of business and lifestyle factors. The capital scored highly in these sections according to the poll of over 800 international technology professionals. London's good international travel connections, cultural diversity and creative and innovative environment were highlighted as important factors for its attractiveness.
