The Rain Clouds
Rain Gods need a place to live and these are The Rain Clouds, co-working spaces dedicated to specific market verticals for companies that are serious about what they are trying to achieve.
The first of The Rain Clouds is The Rain Cloud Victoria, where The Rain Gods is also based. This 100-seat facility is located on the boundary of Victoria and the Westminster government precinct. It is dedicated to the emerging area of CivTech, supporting companies that are bringing digital disruption to government, public services and democracy.
Loughborough University is ranked as the UK’s number 1 University for Student Experience and as one of the top-10 research universities in the country in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise. As part of an ambitious strategy to both grow and raise standards, it opened a London campus in 2015.
The Rain Gods were engaged for their knowledge of the university-sme-government eco-system in London and asked to help build relationships that would benefit students, researchers and the corporate interests of the new activity.
Nesta is the UK’s Innovation Foundation.
Working with members of Nesta’s Challenge Prize Centre, The Rain Gods is managing the development and deployment of a technology sandbox to help the UK’s largest banks to supply data to third parties to develop comparison and pricing of banking products for the SME market. The work was commissioned by the Competition and Markets Authority.
Details of the Sirius project will be updated shortly.
