Digital Centre opens up new opportunities for business owners by providing access to new markets, networks, business training and financial services.


By advancing opportunities for entrepreneurs via digital platforms, we bring the benefits of digital technology to entrepreneurs in order to accelerate the growth of their businesses.

East London has a lot on offer for creative, digital and tech start-ups with its incubators and accelerators geared towards these industries. Technology incubators are based in Barking and Dagenham’s Enterprise Centre and act as a “hatchery” for start-ups providing mentoring, office space and investment opportunities.  Greenwich is another hub for digital entrepreneurs with its Digital Greenwich accelerator programme and virtual incubator (available to businesses nationwide).

London Legacy

The London Legacy Development Corporation was formed to ensure sustainable benefits from the 2012 Olympics in Newham, East London:

» Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is at the heart of a new east London – one where diversity and cultural vibrancy meet economic growth. That means helping to develop a dynamic new heart for east London, creating opportunities for local people and driving innovation and growth across the city and the UK.

Here East lies at the Hub:

Here East is a place of immense possibility: 1.2 million sq. ft of commercial space, set in a beautiful canalside location in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, on the fringe of Hackney Wick. It is the first place of its kind, a destination for the innovative business and maker community.

It is being developed by iCITY, the company selected by the London Legacy Development Corporation to deliver a legacy from the former Press and Broadcast Centres..
