THE WHAT, THE WHO & THE WHY
Hey! We're PLATF9RM. Welcome to that page where we talk shamelessly about ourselves. We’ll try to keep it short...
PLATF9RM is a new flexible workspace in Brighton & Hove. It’s at the heart of a creative business community that thrives through the collaborations of its members and co-workers.
We opened our first floor at Tower Point in November 2016. Since then we’ve opened a second floor, plus a new site at the iconic Hove Town Hall. We’re on target for 500 members in the next 12 months and we've already accrued a true smorgasbord of professions: film-makers, PR agencies, illustrators, charities, accountants, writers, cleaners, graphic designers. We’ve even got a mime artist.
So....why are we called PLATF9RM? Founder Seb Royle used to commute to London every day. He realised Brighton needed a workspace tailored to the needs of the 21st-century worker; that gave them 24/7 flexibility and connected them with the people that could make their business shine.
Brighton station has eight platforms, eight ways. Seb was looking for a ninth way and knew he couldn’t be alone. PLATF9RM was born.
Our team prides themselves on getting to know all our co-workers, whether you’re a freelancer or CEO of a multi-national company. We also curate a program of social and cultural events that ensure PLATF9RM members get to know each other personally. To us, above everything, the community is key.
