Mindspace, the rapidly-growing global provider of high-end, inspiring co-working space, announced today the opening of Mindspace Salvatorplatz, its second Munich location in the beating heart of the old town. The MIndspace building is located at Salvatorplatz 3, in front of the historic Salvatorkirche. The space covers a total area of 2,200 square meters over four floors. The vibrant community of over 250 members at Salvatorplatz features over 40 startups and companies from diverse verticals. This space opens at a high occupancy rate of over 80%, following the success of Mindspace’s first Munich location at Viktualienmarkt. The company reports that all private offices at the new location are sold out. Some desks at the open space are still available, but will be sold out too within days.
Dan Zakai, CEO and co-founder at Mindspace, said: “We’re excited to open doors at Mindspace Salvatorplatz, nearly full on day one once again. We’re thankful to the tech and business community of Munich for giving Mindspace such a warm welcome to the Bavarian State Capital over the past year and trusting us with the well-being of their teams. We’re proud to accommodate the city’s most innovative companies and to host exciting events at Mindspace. We’re bullish about Munich’s economic future and take action to accommodate the market’s growth at Mindspace Salvatorplatz, Mindspace Viktualienmarkt, and soon Mindspace Stachus (Karlsplatz), our largest co-working location to date, which is also opening this spring.”
Peter Albers, General Manager EMEA at Elementum, a member company at Mindspace Salvatorplatz, explained why he chose to place his team at Mindspace: “We are a Silicon Valley-based company specializing in the creation of apps to simplify global supply chain management. We were looking for a space that would give us the flexibility to constantly grow, but also one that has a cool vibe, like at our Silicon Valley office. Mindspace delivered on both accounts. The working environment at Mindspace has helped us grow also by attracting local talent. People are excited to join a vibrant, growing company that is located in the center of the city. We’re excited to call Mindspace Salvatorplatz our new home in Munich.”
AMIVOQ, an early-stage startup developing an e-commerce fashion platform, is also among Mindspace Salvatorplatz’s members. Nurgul Myrzalieva, AMIVOQ’s founder, said: “We got to know Mindspace as members at Viktualienmarkt, and we’re now upscaling our business, and moving to Mindspace Salvatorplatz. Mindspace has a unique offering at Munich – a caring community that mashes up established companies and start-ups, and creates the right mix of creative juices and business acumen. We love the Mindspace look and feel, and when we invite the large brands we work with to visit us at our office, they immediately fall in love too. Mindspace’s work environment and community are instrumental to our company’s growth.”
In a recent customer survey, 93% of Mindspace members worldwide noted that Mindspace has benefited their businesses through the networking events and opportunities held on-site. 95% of the members said that they would recommend Mindspace to their friends.
Mindspace entered Munich only last summer and already established itself as the co-working leader of the Bavarian State Capital. Its successful Viktualienmarkt location is home to many innovative enterprise teams, such as Siemens’ Intelligent Traffic Systems Digital Lab and the Siemens AI Research Lab, investors such as ABC Venture Gates, and dozens of startups. Mindspace also hosts noteworthy events on a daily basis.
There’s no sign of slowing down for Mindspace in Munich. The company recently announced that it will launch its largest location to date this Autumn at Stachus (Karlsplatz). Mindspace’s third location in Munich’s central business district will span an entire building of six floors and over 7,200 square meters, hosting over 1,000 members. Mindspace Stachus will especially cater to large enterprise teams looking for flexible and customizable workspace solutions.
