About our hub

BaseKX has been designed to give people the creative and collaborative space they need to get their ideas off the ground. As well as the facilities you’d expect, it offers access to a regular programme of events, including fortnightly get-togethers for resident startups.

It's also home to the Hatchery, UCL's incubation programme for its most promising entrepreneurs.

  • a fixed desk 
  • five bookable meeting rooms
  • creative communal spaces
  • wifi, printers, secure lockers, cycle storage
  • access from Monday to Sunday, 7am to 8.30pm

Who the hub is for

BaseKX was set up by UCL, the London Borough of Camden and other local organisations to nurture early stage startups in the area. 

You’ll be able to apply to join us if you:
