The campus for high-growth start-ups will open in Spring 2017.
In her new role, Guha will support UK start-ups by bringing them into the RocketSpace ecosystem and bridge the gap between the UK and Silicon Valley to assist members’ international growth.
This will include access to services and partners essential to tech startups' development, as well as RocketSpace's roster of Fortune 1000 corporate clients.
She will also work with leaders from the public and private sectors, as well as international entrepreneurial organisations to provide support and opportunities for RocketSpace members.
"Having seen first hand RocketSpace's integral contribution to the Silicon Valley tech ecosystem, I am delighted to lead its UK campus," said Guha.
"Global tech players with European roots, such as Blippar, Spotify and Supercell, scaled their businesses at RocketSpace in San Francisco. The new UK tech campus will be a place for the best of British tech startups to accelerate their growth and for innovation to thrive."
Duncan Logan, founder and CEO of RocketSpace, added: "Priya has a tremendous track record working with technology companies on both sides of the Atlantic.
"Her cross-border experience and deep relationships make Priya a valuable leader and advocate for our members as we join one of the world's leading tech ecosystems."
Guha served as a British diplomat for 20 years across India, Spain and the U.S. She became Britain's first female Consul General to San Francisco when she was appointed in 2011.
During her five-year tenure in Silicon Valley, Guha worked closely with technology companies, and was also an active supporter of women in business, using her platform to drive key initiatives to promote UK female tech founders.
"In her diplomatic career, Priya was a champion for Britain, for British business, for technology, and for entrepreneurs. This is a brilliant appointment by RocketSpace, and I've no doubt that Priya will be a great advocate for the organisation and its members," said Eileen Burbidge, partner at Passion Capital and Chair TechCity UK.
This appointment is the latest development in RocketSpace's global expansion across Europe and Asia.
