The Bloomberg News video cameras rolled into Mobile Roadie’s London office in the last week to film a report on the technology companies that are choosing London’s “Silicon Roundabout” as their European base. The roundabout at the junction of City Road and Old Street in London is known as Silicon Roundabout, due to the high number of web businesses located in the immediate area. More recently since the launch of the British government’s “East London Tech City” initiative in November, Silicon Roundabout’s profile is rising internationally.
It was during another busy week of meetings in London in 2010 that Mobile Roadie CEO Michael Schneider decided upon this location to establish our London office in Shoreditch. He chose the moo.com building as it was home to companies such as Tweetdeck, Groupspaces, Moo.com and SoundCloud. Within a stones throw of our office are our technology partners Songkick, Topspin and other notable names including Last.fm, InGrooves, and Mixcloud.
Check out the video report for a glimpse inside our London office and when in town be sure to book in a meeting with Stephen O’Reilly who is heading up our London office.
