About Second Home

Second Home is a global creative business with a social mission to support entrepreneurship, creativity and job creation. We launched in London in 2014, and we have so far raised over $75 million to help us scale our work around the world. 

We operate spectacular workspaces and cultural venues in London, Lisbon and Los Angeles – bringing together diverse companies and people. As we firmly believe: good things happen when different people, ideas and industries come together. 

Social impact is at the core of our values. For example: local community groups can use our meeting rooms free of charge – and our cultural program is open to everyone, not just Second Home members. Over 15% of teams based at Second Home are non-profits and social impact organizations – including Snap Foundation, GOOD and 826LA. We also run our own community programmes like Libreria’s Language Labs.
