Our Location

Kao Data’s campus is strategically located in Harlow, less than 20 miles from central London and ideally positioned within the Cambridge-Stansted-London ‘UK Innovation Corridor’.

The Innovation Corridor is the UK’s fastest growing economic region and a specialist area for life sciences laboratories, pharmaceutical multinationals, scientific research institutes and artificial intelligence start-ups. Globally prominent as a region for invention and enterprise, there are more patents per capita in the UK Innovation Corridor than Silicon Valley.

Kao Data’s ultra-low risk location is easily accessible from any of London’s centres of finance, commerce or government, and equally from the science and research communities in-and-around Cambridge. Through London Stansted Airport we enjoy direct links to Europe, the US and Asia.
