Brexit Could Mean Saying Goodbye To These People
As we all know by now the UK has chosen to vote out the EU in the Brexit campaign with a leading majority of 52% leave to 48%. However close the vote was, the majority have won which means action will be taken upon going forth with Article 50.
However, what does this mean for free working spaces like Google campus and others? Well in the worst case scenario it could lead to a brain-drain fueling many tech-heads the desire to considering relocation to other competing cities like Berlin and Paris. What happens in places like Google Campus? Ideas take place, team members are found, comfortable environments with fast Internet and entertainment are provided to keep minds stimulated. Investment is given to these startups which then allow them to rent office spaces in various environments thus developing their businesses further.
Without these types of people who also happen to be foreign and living here in the UK, for the startup scene it will simply mean a huge slump in the UK technology market. Unless you know either know someone who works in this market or happen to work in it yourself, the realisation is rather considerable and shouldn’t be taken too lightly.
The faces of these hard workers looking to build a future as a startup and disrupt their markets with new technology and innovation may have become a lot more slimmer with opportunities from EU investment down to nothing unless relocation or company registration abroad in the other EU countries. The Tech Startup scene needs investors and investment. These are just a few startups that are UK home grown: Song Kick, TransferWise, YPlan, Seedrs, Zoopla and many more.
We hope even though the setback of the Brexit the UK can still keep pushing forwards with new innovation and technology. The climb will be a lot steeper but nothing’s impossible.Tags: brexit, campus, england, eu, google, referendum, startups, technology
