Our story begins in 2012, when our building was home to the press centre of the London 2012 Olympic Games, before work began on transforming the site into an innovation centre based at the Here East tech cluster.
Plexal was officially opened by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan in June 2017 and in a very short space of time we have become a thriving hub of tech startup and scaleup activity.
Since then we’ve made rapid progress, filling up with amazing tech startups and hosting hackathons, conferences, launches and meetups.
In 2018, we delivered Plexiglass: an accelerator to help female-founded startups scale.
And in June 2018, we were hugely proud to launch LORCA (the London Office for Rapid Cyber Advancement), which will see Plexal run bespoke, six-month programmes for the country’s top cybersecurity companies over three years.
