TechHub is a unique environment where technology startups can start up faster. We nurture an international network of like-minded and focused tech entrepreneurs, providing places where they can work, meet, collaborate, network, learn and have fun. By getting the right people together in a physical space, good things happen.
I enjoy working at TechHub as you can choose how and where you work, plus there's a buzz of quiet activity which keeps you going all day. When you want a break there's plenty going on inside and outside the building. People are all willing to give advice and help and there's plenty of opportunity to have an after work beer.
The Great Tech Rocketships initiative launched today from [TechHub Bangalore](http://bangalore.techhub.com), with a global call for ideas and submissions from entrepreneurs who want to change the world. This is a programme to seek out impressive emerging companies and ideas from around India and around the world that have the potential to be fast growing "Rocketships" - companies with a global outlook from the beginning. The initiative is a collaboration between **TechHub** and **UKTI** with support from **iSPIRT**.
Further support is also being provided by panelists from various world-leading organisations including the UK’s Met Office.
We know that working on your own can be lonely - it's one of the reasons we started TechHub in the first place. We've been solving that problem for entrepreneurs and startup teams for nearly five years and now we want to do the same for freelance developers. So we're setting up a space in TechHub Shoreditch for devs to work together, even when they're not working on the same project. As a member of TechHub DevSpace, as well as access to tech workspace, you'll be able to hang out with TechHub startups and attend TechHub events, even if you're not a permanent member of a startup team. There's free coffee, frequent beers, a games console corner and plenty of space to just hang out and get to know people.
