There’s hubs and campuses popping up in and around London, dedicated to helping entrepreneurs to grow and realise their ambitions. Popular hang outs and work hubs so far has centered around technology and design. Now there’s one dedicated for parent entrepreneurs too, and you are invited to the launch party!
LattjoPOP is a new work hub, campus and meeting point, dedicated for parent entrepreneurs. It’s a versatile shared space and business hub, including a children’s crèche, cafe/kitchen and a dedicated pop-up store space. It’s free to drop in. Space can also be rented for meetings and events. The launch party of this brand new concept will take place as a Swedish Midsummer Party on the 21st of June. Tickets are £8 for adults / £5 for children over 5. Children under 5 go free. Tickets include food, drinks, crafts, games and goody bags for the children, and a quiz where the winner gets a hamper from TotallySwedish filled with Swedish Husmansbord awarded food products and other goodies.
“We’re launching LattjoPOP with a party in order to introduce parents in south west London to the Lattjo concept, space and staff”, says founder and manager Isra Al Kassi. Three years ago, at the age of 22, Swedish-born mother and Streathamite Isra Al Kassi set up LatteMama, which is an online business and blog for and about children’s clothing, with support from The Prince’s Trust.
“I realised how hard it is to network as a single mother running a business. So, the idea for a meeting place for professional parents was born. Lattjo is Swedish slang for fun, and POP stands for Pop Up. I believe that we have what it takes to make this work. London is seeing an increase in family friendly cafés, but at LattjoPOP we’re taking it to the next level.”
LattjoPOP is financed partly via a crowd funding project, donations from businesses, individuals and sponsors. The situated on 544 Streatham High Road, nearest station is Streatham Comon. Fees for the different activities and space hire is listed on lattjopop.com
