We are super excited to have x + why on the Desana app, which gives businesses access to flexible workspaces and coworking office spaces.

Why do we love x + why?

x + why supports coworking with a conscience. The businesses that operate in this space aren't necessarily charities - but they do believe that business should be a force for good.

Appropriately, their Whitechapel location is the former People's Mission Hall - not only a suitable name but also the home for many years to the Salvation Army, another organisation strongly defined by its purpose.

Where is it?

Whitechapel, London

How do I get there?

It's 3 minutes walk from Aldgate East Station.

What can I do nearby?

With Brick Lane a saunter away, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to great food and drink. If you don't know where to start, try out Sushinoen, Apples & Pears Bar and TRADE (for sushi, cocktails and coffee - all the essentials).
