What would Croydon look like as a start-up/ Tech City?

I have a very strong passion to see Croydon realise its potential as a hub for technical entrepreneurs, developers and venture capitalists – the Silicon Roundabout of South London, if you will.

I’m aware that it might be hard to visualise – so below are examples of other cities/towns that have started on the road to encouraging a large hub of start-ups and digital/tech industries.

Please enjoy (and savour!) each of them – they’re well-made productions which display different facets of the global tech-boom and its various effects on localised areas. Keep in mind how they might apply to Croydon! 🙂

1. Lisbon

2. Kiryat Gat, Israel – a framework for a ‘mediated city’

3. Cincinnati

4. Berlin – Betahaus ‘People in Beta’ (co-working community)

5. Johannesburg

6. Philadelphia

7. Copenhagen

8. Baltimore

9. Chicago

10. Philadelphia

11. Helsinki

12. Berlin (again!)
