CodeBase Stirling: One Year On

CodeBase Stirling: One Year On

Just over a year ago, CodeBase Stirling flung open its doors to welcome a new batch of startups and scaleups.

It was the foundation stone of what is hoped will grow into a thriving startup community. Twelve months on and we’re heading in the right direction. It’s perhaps time, then, to look at the lessons learned from the experience of building a startup community from scratch.

Tenant Interviews: Cereproc

It's always great to hear from technologies at the cutting edge - TTS [Text To Speech] has been around for years, and Matthew Aylett from Cereproc has seen first hand the changes not only in the technology, but the way people think about use cases. Featured in the BBC last month as they brought to the life the speech JFK was going to give the day he was assassinated, they've had a string of high profile projects.

Eagle Labs Launch

Eagle Labs Launch

Last night saw the launch of the first Barclays Eagle Lab in Scotland, right here in CodeBase. Our events space and Hotdesking area were packed with entrepreneurs, designers, corporates, academics, and developers, all creating an incredible buzz. When we weren't stuffing our faces with street food and drinking some tasty Fallen Brewing beer, we got to see some of the new devices in action and meet the users who were excitedly discussing projects.

Tenant Interviews: Caspian Psychology

We sat down with one of CodeBase's Hotdeskers, Johnny Mitchell, for a chat about his company Caspian Psychology and basing himself from CodeBase Stirling the past couple months.

What's the nature of your business? 
We develop digital and non-digital interactive games for organisations based on clear leraning objectives. These games help organisations achieve their learning objectives through the principles of gamification.

What are your plans for growth? 
Currently we have developed three interactive team games that are facilitated by our partners. In the near future we plan to develop short stand-alone apps and games that require no facilitation and can be played in the employees’ own time, but still linked to clear learning objectives. 

 
 

Why did you choose CodeBase? 
I tried out hotdesking and found that I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. The location is also excellent, the coffee is good and there is table-tennis! 

How has being based here helped you? 
It’s been great for meeting a range of people that are working in different, but related industries. I think these contacts will be useful to me in the future. The staff at Codebase have also shared their contacts and knowledge with me which will help me as I grow the business.
