How do you feel working in a shared office like the Greenhouse E9 and how do you benefit from it…?

There’s a great atmosphere and constant flow of creative energy here at Greenhouse. Diverse disciplines add interest and friendly faces are a great perk to a working day.

FOLD

1.Tell us a little bit about your business and who you are…

We are Becky & Phelan- two yoga teachers based in East London. Last month we launched our studio FOLD.  in the gorgeous Wellness Room of the GH. We offer a range of different class levels in mostly the Vinyasa Flow style of yoga which is a cardiovascular based practice with an emphasis on calming the nervous system down through breathwork and movement – something all busy Londonders could benefit from! However, don’t just expect it to be all deep breaths and slow stretches. Our classes are strong and challenging and you will sweat a lot and build a lot of strength, too.

 

2.Tell us about how Fold came about…

We both met whislt teaching in another East London studio, and as we got chatting we discovered we had very similar ideas about yoga and the kind of studio that we think this area is missing. We wanted to create a space that offered strong classes whislt also staying true to the other side of yoga- the mindfulness side. Yoga has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety, and even curb disease in the mind and body with a dedicated practice. So we wanted to offer people a space where every class incorporoated both elements of strong exercise as well as reflection and relaxation.

 

3.What’s the vision behind your business that motivates you every day…

For us, the most important thing is that FOLD. retains its light-hearted and welcoming ethos. Lots of studios can be very intimidating places, which can put many people off of going to a class. We are committed to ensuring that FOLD. never harbours a competetive, egotistical energy. We want students of all shapes and sizes and levels of strength and flexibility to come to the studio to learn and develop their personal yoga practice without feeling judged.

That’s why we offer so many different types of classes- so there really is something for every body; from beginners who want to break down every single pose, to super strong yogis who wants extra arm balances and core work. Our teachers are all well-respected in London, and are all hand selected for their approachability. We wnt everyone to feel like if they have any questions or need any guidance, they can chat to any FOLD. teacher about the class freely. As we grow we are constantly adding more teachers and more workshops to the timetable, so best to keep checking our instagram and website for upcoming classes.

On top of the yoga- we are going to be hosting many yoga & non-yoga related events and talks. These are really exciting features of FOLD. for us, because no other studios are really doing this. Right now we are in talks with some amazing girls in East London about hosting a ‘real body talk’ event at FOLD. in Novemeber and in Decemeber we are having a yoga class followed by a film screening with pizza! There’s just so much fun and interesting stuff in the pipeline- so definitely check out our instagram page and website regularly for all things FOLD.

 

 

4.How do you feel working from a space like Greenhouse N16…

We  absolutely love being in the GH! We love Lottie and all of her delicious food and al the plants. We LOVE the weird pod- especially at night when it goes green and looks like a random spaceship. We love seeing all the familiar faces of the GH workers pottering in throughout the day. And we love even more having them in our classes. Having a full yoga timetable in your work space is something most offices dream of, so we do hope GH memebers take advantage of it and come and get some hours in during the week. Our timetable is in a constant state of flux, so soon there’ll be even more morning and evening classes for people to choose from- so hopefully we see more of you there.

BOUDICA SECURITY

1.Tell us a little bit about your business and who you are…

The name of the company was inspired by the legend, Queen Boudica, Who led Britain on a revolt against Rome in 60CE.

 

2.Tell us about how Boudica came about…

I created Boudica after a tragic personal experience and the carelessness of a security team. A best friend of mine was killed inside a club a situation that could have been prevented. Boudica was formed and based its ethos and passion on ensuring safety for its surrounding environment for all people present to ensure that we do everything in our power to preserve life.

 

3.How do you feel working in a shared office like the Greenhouse N16, and how do you benefit from it…

The Greenhouse has provided a diverse working environment enabling Boudica Security to enhance structure of the business, build up a better working relationship with clients and staff as well as we have made life long friends.

INFOCANDY

Tell us a little bit about your business and who you are…

Infocandy is an Animation Production company. We work in a variety of sectors from Children’s Entertainment & Education to Corporate Advertising & Communications. You might find us making foxes out of leaves and rats out of plasticine, or glued to our computer screens animating beautiful things, or anything in between. So far, we’ve worked with some pretty big brands like the BBC, E4, Price Waterhouse Coopers and a load of various digital agencies.

Infocandy is led by:

Jon Lawrence

With over 10 years experience in developing corporate brands, Jon has written scripts for national TV ad campaigns, produced animations for the BBC and developed numerous websites and brand identities for start-ups and for FTSE 100 clients alike.

Jon co-founded Infocandy in 2013 with Anna. Involved in every project Infocandy delivers, he acts as the all-important middle ground between the business brain and creative artist. Often the public face of the company, he’ll likely be the one that arrives if you arrange to meet us.

Anna Humphries

A graduate from the internationally renowned National Film and Television School, Anna’s award winning animations have been screened and adored across the world. What makes Anna unique is her ability to adapt her skills to fit any style of animation. She enjoys nothing more than being confronted with a project that teaches her something new.

Anna has a pure love for all things beautiful, whether it be music, art or animation. She is the driving force behind the creative flair of Infocandy and takes responsibility for the standard of every film that comes out of our office.

 

From time to time, you’ll also meet our small army of freelancers who are currently scattered all over the country.

Tell us how Infocandy came about…

The idea of Infocandy came about whilst Anna was making a promotional animation for a company called Vitokito. Late one evening, Jon started looking over the voice over script and (working as a copywriter at the time) thought he could do better, so ended up staying up half the night and rewriting it. It was then we realised that our skills were complimentary and that we should probably start up a business. That was about four years ago. Two years later, Jon quit his job and away we went.

What’s the vision behind your business that motivates you everyday?

This sounds horribly cheesy, but we really do try and create beautiful artistic animation that we are really proud of for all of our clients. We love the opportunity to work with new and obscure animation techniques, as well as interesting people and brands. What we really want to do is build a company that will allow us to invest time and money into creating entertainment for childrens’ film and television.

 How do you feel working in a shared office like the Greenhouse N16 benefits your business?

We have both been working from home for the past two and a half years, and so being around three dimensional people again is a bit of a shock to the system. But so far so good! We’ve enjoyed our first week here, everyone we’ve met is really friendly. Being in the office has already increased my productivity and we’ve already seen a healthy boost in our work pipeline.

 

We are hoping we’ll be able to work in conjunction with other people and companies in the office as time goes on, as well as getting to know everyone better down the

NIGHT ZOOKEEPER

Tell us a little bit about your business and who you are…

At Night Zookeeper we inspire children to learn English and improve their writing skills. We are based on a magical story about a Night Zoo, which is full of weird and wonderful animals and our product invites children to invent their very own magical animals and write stories about them. We work with primary school teachers and parents to improve engagement in writing and reading.

Tell us how Night Zookeeper came about…

We are a group of old university friends that are passionate about creativity and education. We pooled our savings, secured private investment and worked hard for four years to get to this point. We are now used by over 5,000 teachers across the globe but obviously are still looking to grow.

What’s the vision behind your business that motivates you everyday?

We are driven to deliver a more creative curriculum. To help children express themselves and improve their English skills. We love that technology is changing education to make it more personal and connected and we want Night Zookeeper to inspire the next generation of creators. Too much technology for children gives them limited, preset choices. It doesn’t allow them to express themselves through play. Night Zookeeper is different. We champion original thought and imagination. Come over and see the animation teaser we made to understand more.

 How do you feel working in a shared office like the Greenhouse N16 benefits your business?

Frankly we are loving the Greenhouse. It is such a great atmosphere to work in and we all feel very productive, but also relaxed and happy. We are also very much a people powered business and the more people that know what we are trying to do the better. Thank you to everyone who has already expressed an interest. Please do feel free to come over and say hello! We would love to take you through our website nightzookeeper.com.
