Co-founded by UCL Machine Learning specialist Guillaume Bouchard, Bloomsbury AI had a mission to make it easier for people to talk to their computers using natural language. They created a system which reads your website and documents, learning about the topics contained in them, then you’re able to ask it questions. They were one of BLOOM.SPACE’s first members, joining because of the proximity to the UCL talent pool, the location (in Bloomsbury!) and our flexible approach - they’re team expended and contracted frequently during their membership.

Bloomsbury AI spent a year with us and we were pleased to provide them with space, support and help with recruiting new team members form the tech startup world. They joined straight after finishing the Entrepreneur First programme, having formed their team and were looking for an inexpensive, flexible and supporting co-working environment.

Guillaume’s father owns a vineyard and his wine was always an integral part of our meet-ups!

infloAI joined us when we opened and stayed for over a year while growing their date supply technology. It uses artificial intelligence to scrape the web and find streams of data specific to your needs. 

Founded by Adam Benzecrit and Toby Cockayne they originally focused on sports data, broadening their offering later to include financial data and more.

We introduced them to key investors, helped them recruit talent, provided flexible work space and gave them beer throughout.

We helped them with recruiting talent, promoting their roles to our networks and providing flexible low-cost office space. Aiden made use of our hot desks and their team grew fast!
