In 2014 our Co-Founder, Gabriela Hersham opened our first doors in Clerkenwell, London. From the very beginning, Gaby had a clear vision about what Huckletree would be - the place where the brightest minds in technology and creativity could work alongside each other, sharing knowledge and ideas, supporting each other with their growth. The world of work was shifting rapidly, and huge advancements in the shared economy meant that businesses of all sizes were becoming increasingly open to working together under the same roof. Over the years, our team expanded the businesses into Manchester and Dublin, building community in these fast growth cities where disruption and innovation is ripe. Today we operate 7 curated workspaces across our three cities that house and power the innovation sector, from startups, scaleups and investors all the way through to enterprise teams. By 2024, we will have 10 hubs, and will celebrate our 10th anniversary.
We want to be the world's most impactful and trusted workspace provider and dynamic innovation ecosystem. Inside Huckletree you'll find inspiring and trusted spaces where teams can work, gather together, connect with the best minds in the innovation ecosystem and make brave impact. We’ve been cultivating our ecosystem since 2014 by bringing together a community of disruptive organisations and people to share ideas, collaborate and drive change. We provide the space for ambitious businesses and big thinkers to work, gather and connect with each other. Our hubs are designed to inspire and delight our members and foster collaboration, conversation, well-being, morale and productivity. With our human, passionate, and fun approach to hospitality, we're on a mission to redefine the workspace experience.
