Engine Shed Arrivals Lounge looking for new passengers

  • The space has previously been occupied by Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator, who have scaled up with Engine Shed’s support
  • Previous occupants include Just Eat, Somo Global, and TechSpark
  • Engine Shed is looking for tenants who are able to contribute value to the community

Engine Shed is seeking new occupiers for its 600sqft Arrivals Lounge office, following the successful departure of Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator.

The space, which is located directly off Engine Shed’s Members’ Lounge, is available from 7thFebruary 2019 on competitive and flexible terms. It is approximately 600sqft, currently with 20 desk spaces.

In 2017, Oracle selected Engine Shed as the sole UK location for their global support programme on the back of Bristol’s reputation as a global tech hub. In a worldwide operational change, the US tech giant has rebranded its accelerator to become the Oracle Global Startup Ecosystem. During their tenancy in the Arrivals Lounge, Engine Shed has supported Oracle, offering a great environment to test their model, which has resulted in this scale up.

Oracle’s outgrowing of its Engine Shed office is representative of the kind of support Engine Shed offers to all types of organisations and projects in its network. Previous tenants of the Arrivals Lounge include TechSPARKSomo Global, and Just Eat who used it as their Bristol launch pad in 2014, before launching their own Bristol hub.

Now, Engine Shed is seeking a new occupier that will benefit from the environment and can bring value to Engine Shed’s community and its vision of growing an economy that is inclusive, sustainable, beneficial to all.

Karen Drake, Engine Shed Operations Director, said:

“The Arrivals Lounge at Engine Shed is situated central to the building, surrounded by the vibrant Members’ Lounge and Coworking offices. It’s an attractive offering for growing businesses, especially those new to the South West and those planning to scale up in the region. The environment and dynamic membership base of Engine Shed creates the perfect setting and networks for accelerating the growth of energetic, diverse, and committed businesses.”

If you are interested in occupying the Arrivals Lounge, please contact Engine Shed Operations Director, Karen Drake, stating why you are interested in becoming a part of Engine Shed’s community, and what you would bring to the ecosystem.
