The Future of Coworking.

LaunchPad is a unique future-focused cluster of workspaces purpose-built, sensibly-designed and efficiently-operated to attract, inspire, nurture and grow the entrepreneurial and innovation mindset.
“We created LaunchPad because we wanted to help businesses grow and innovate. To create a place where entrepreneurs could be their best. A place where we would role-model the future of work.
As entrepreneurs, we realise the importance of striking the right balance when nurturing and cultivating a growth-mindset in business owners, leaders and their team members.
We believe LaunchPad is the future of work and provides the right environment to grow businesses.” Jeremy Ellis & David Thomas.

Meet the Team

A model of Coworking that inspires companies to grow.

Founding LaunchPad in 2012 after colliding a serviced-office run as a side-hustle to their primary business, a Management Consultancy, the founders created a model of Coworking that inspires companies to grow.

“We knew that Scaleup businesses are the engine room of growth in the future economy. It was clear that as a sector, they didn’t have the support they deserved. LaunchPad was our way of creating something that truly made a difference.”, Jeremy Ellis.

Startups, Scaleups and Grownups can find a space uniquely designed for them.

Diverse in their skills, experience and beliefs, but agree on a core set of values.

“We strongly believe that if we are to make a difference, we need to instil a growth mindset in our community.
As Cofounders, we always knew that each of our strengths complements the other’s struggles. We differ on many issues, yet we agree on the values we have in common.”
David Thomas.

Our Community

Cultivating Creativity and Innovation.

Our community is built by intentionally choosing founders and businesses who are open to new ideas, are willing to contribute, and are motivated to take action.  We deliberately cultivate diversity in the community because we know that creativity and innovation come from celebrating our differences, not the comfort of our similarities.

Why LaunchPad?

LaunchPad's Five Unique Features

We created LaunchPad as a unique future focused Coworking space. We choose to focus on five critical characteristics that all growing businesses need.

Our Impact

Leaving the place better than when we found it

We care about the positive contribution and role modelling that our community can make in the broader entrepreneurial ecosystem, business and social communities.

Challenging Collaborators to think big and find ways to impact external communities, the Groundcrew facilitates several programs, including working with charities and LaunchPad2Zero.
