Helping you make
your product a reality

Creative workspace in the City of London for early-stage hardware startups

BUILD YOUR NEXT KICKSTARTER AT FAB LAB

BE INSPIRED

You will have access to a 4000 sq.ft creative makerspace with desk-working areas and workshops. We bring you the right support, with the right partners and skills, to you at the time when you need assistance rather than offer a formalised bootcamp, or training program.

HUMAN CENTRED DESIGN

Great design is at the core of what we do. We provide access to an experienced team of designers and engineers who are able to help you through a human centred design process using popular design tools including Autodesk, Solidworks, Eagle, Design Spark and Cloud platforms.

HELPING YOU GROW

Our network of manufacturing partners and angel investors can help scale your product from the design prototype to millions of units. Whether you want to solve your own problem, get a Kickstarter to market or enhance a product, we offer the support you need.

PART OF A COMMUNITY

Becoming part of the Fab Lab London hardware community means you’ll be connected to the largest maker network on the planet – linked with over 1000+ labs across 90+ countries: machines, tools, ideas, people and the network.

"...The City of London’s first purpose-built digital fabrication and rapid prototyping workspace with 3D printers, laser cutters, electronics lab, toolshed and textiles..."
