CRATE was created by serial entrepreneur Adam Walker to build a collaborative and inspiring network of vibrant business communities that offer exceptional value for money.

Premises today

The vast majority of local commercial premises fail to meet the needs of early-stage and growing businesses, meaning entrepreneurs have to travel further, pay more, or forgo the opportunity for growth.

CRATE is different

We combine flexible workspace, engaging communal facilities and a raft of on-site business support and marketing services start-ups, small businesses and growing firms. This provides the competitive edge tenant businesses need to thrive. 

Vibrancy and flexibility

Curation is critical - a mix of business types from creatives to retailers to service suppliers brings energy, collaboration and new sales opportunities. 

In addition, there are national brands on site to provide value-added services.

CRATE Loughton

In April 2017, CRATE Loughton in Essex opened to a diverse group of entrepreneurs. Over the next seven years we plan to launch 20 CRATE schemes, supporting 1,000 businesses. We are delighted to be bringing CRATE to Walthamstow and Docklands in 2019, adding to local vitality and attracting more visitors to these areas.
