Google London Campus - Inside the incubator for tech startups
Co-working has long been the hip way for young startup companies to get work done by combining the sociability and cost-sharing of formal offices with the relaxed atmosphere that comes from working from home. If you remember how Mark Zuckerberg's Palo Alto bungalow was portrayed in "The Social Network," then you have an idea of how co-working environments can be both productive and fun.
Google is now getting into the action on its own with its new seven-story co-working space known as the Campus in the heart of London's Tech City. In this slideshow we'll take you through some of the Campus' major features, such as an in-house café and work areas that come complete with pool tables.
