The Rain Cloud Victoria will be a home for the UK’s CivTech community. So, you should be looking to bring change to public services, communications between government and the people or the very nature of democracy itself, either by selling services to government or by building things using government data.
Alternatively, you might be an enabler – an organisation that works with government, in politics or already supplies government – and wants to work in an innovative environment and willing to help others to develop the networks they need and build partnerships with real commercial value.
Government is the biggest industry on the planet and the least affected by digital transformation. We are looking for the people who want to do something about that.
The space is being developed in collaboration with the wonderful people at Westminster Kingsway College.
The Rain Cloud Victoria supports three pricing tiers based on the kind of organisation you are.
- Corporate rate – £450-600 – for large companies that want to spend time being inspired by innovative young tech firms such as those you can find in The Rain Cloud.
- Start Up and SME rate – £325-400 – for start ups and small businesses that have a chance to change government, democracy, politics or public services.
- Charity rate – £250-325 – for actual charities not charity cases.
- Hot desking – £60-100 – all depending on the number of hours you expect to be around each week.
All prices are based on per person, per desk, per month and need VAT adding.
Unlike many London co-working spaces there are no add on costs for use of the meeting rooms, the coffee machine, printing or the air you breath – as long as you use all of the facilities in a reasonable manner.
You can vary the number of desks you need (up or down) or tell us you are leaving all with just one month’s notice – no penalties will apply (so far, though, no one has left, so, you know, we are pretty relaxed about this part).
Members of the Rain Cloud agree:
- To help other occupants to start, grow and build their projects.
- To play an active role in the community in the facility.
- To support the public good and engage in activities that benefit society.
- To provide work experience and internship opportunities.
- To celebrate the successes of your own business and others.
- To not inhibit the success of any member of the facility.
- To not be an arse.
