Benjamin Carew is the founder of WeCoffee, providing free & unique workspaces to London’s community of freelancers, entrepreneurs and digital nomads. Ben worked as a freelance automotive engineer for 8 years, working on special projects such as land mine protection for Jaguar Land Rover and electric braking systems for Nissan.

Ben then went into management consulting and automated large parts of Ford Motor Company’s design and release process before moving into Digital Services for both Ford and BP.

Having grown to believe the best commute is no commute, Ben left BP to launch WeCoffee which in less than a year boasts a £5 million valuation and a rapidly growing community.
