Mindspace announces its largest co-working space to-date
The global co-working provider’s third Munich location becomes its biggest ever with 7,200 square metres of workspace that will host over 1,000 leading professionals
Mindspace, the global provider of stylish and inspiring co-working spaces, announced its third Munich location and its largest co-working space to date. Mindspace Stachus spans the entire 6 floors of Herzogspitalstraße 24 and will accommodate forward-looking enterprises, startups, and small and medium businesses, as well as entrepreneurs and freelancers. The addition of Mindspace Stachus to the company’s portfolio in Berlin, Munich and Hamburg, makes Mindspace one of the largest providers of co-working in Germany.
The building set to host Mindspace Stachus is currently undergoing construction and will open for business in the fourth quarter of 2018. Adjacent to Stachus-Karlsplatz in the western side of Munich’s Central Business District, the space is conveniently located by the U-Bahn, S-Bahn and city tram, and the Main Rail Station (Munich Hauptbahnhof) is a short walk away.
Dan Zakai, Co-founder and CEO of Mindspace, said, “We’re thrilled to announce our largest location to date, and our third community in the Bavarian State Capital. Our vibrant community at Viktualienmarkt has quickly become Munich’s most interesting center for innovation and has seen the entire ecosystem visit us for meetups, workshops, and launches. We also witness strong demand for our upscale co-working offering for enterprises, startups, and teams of all sizes, in both Viktualienmarkt and our new Salvatorplatz location, scheduled to open in January 2018. With Mindspace Stachus, we establish a “downtown triangle” within Munich’s intimate business district and old town. This allows our members to work at the most beautiful and convenient spots in town, and to network with all of Mindspace’s members in Munich and around the world. Advancing our global expansion plans, we remain bullish on Munich, Germany, and sustaining our leadership in the European co-working market.”
German conglomerate, Siemens also placed two innovation teams at Mindspace: Siemens’ Intelligent Traffic Systems Digital Lab and the Siemens AI Research Lab.
Founded in 2014 by Dan Zakai and Yotam Alroy, Mindspace operates 16 spaces in Munich, Berlin, Hamburg, London, Warsaw, Tel Aviv, Herzliya, and soon expanding to the U.S. Among Mindspace’s customers are world-leading brands, such as Microsoft, Siemens, Samsung, SAP, Booking.com, Barclays Bank, Lufthansa, Euronews, ProSiebenSat.1 Media, Duff & Phelps, DB Schenker, Hertha BSC, Schwan-Stabilo, M&C Saatchi, Techstars Accelerator, and Startupbootcamp.
