Outreach Business & Employment



The Business Lifecycle Providing pathways for employment AND business development

In 2015, we completed the lifecycle by launching the Hoxton Mix Collective (now 1UP).

As the community interacted within each other many projects were executed across various teams and startups. Innovation and expertise were freely available and usually only a desk away. 1UP started talking to large corporates and helping them to innovate by introducing them to relevant members of the Hoxton Mix community. 1UP has now evolved into an event-based innovation company and regularly executes large hackathons for clients such as Nivea, William Grant and Sons, Unilever and Durex.

Our events create opportunities
by bringing together Big business and local knowledge

Our events through 1UP give these startups the opportunity to pitch their products and services directly to these larger companies at demo days and hackathons.

All of these events are free to join and some clients even pay for the services of startups at the events. They are all designed to launch new projects and connect our clients with startups.
