Flexible workspace provider opens first office space outside of London

Flexible workspace provider x+why has opened its doors for the first time outside of London with the launch of its Birmingham offices.

The Foundry at 6 Brindleyplace offers work spaces, an atrium, 6000sq ft of breakout areas, and amenities including Peloton bikes and an on-site barista.

Rupert Dean, CEO and co-founder of x+why, said: “I am blown away by the Birmingham business community. There is such an appetite to work together and usher in a new, exciting, economy that is kinder to the planet and to the people living on it.

“It’s why we are taking inspiration from the community itself to create Foundry, a space that will live, breathe and grow with its Birmingham members acting as the beating heart. We’re proud of what we’ve created, but more so, proud of what will be achieved in the space by its exciting members.”

This is the first x+why space opening in Birmingham with another due to open by the end of the year.
