Today, Mindspace, a rapidly-growing global provider of beautiful and inspiring coworking spaces, opens its first Polish location in the beating heart of Warsaw atop the buzzing Hala Koszyki project. Ranging from global enterprises to technology startups, companies like the Association of Business Service Leaders (ABSL) and Innovatika now call Mindspace their home for business.
“Warsaw is an important European hub for innovation and talent,” says Yotam Alroy, Co-founder and Chief Business Officer at Mindspace. “We are happy to open our doors to Polish startups and entrepreneurs as well as international businesses expanding to Warsaw, and to become the new center of Warsaw’s innovation ecosystem,” he says.
Mindspace is a global coworking player with 13 locations across the globe, 7,500 members and over 2,000 companies. Currently operating in 7 cities – Warsaw, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Tel Aviv, Herzliya and London – Mindspace’s cosmopolitan network allows members to easily tap into the vibrant innovation ecosystems in these markets. Over 50% of members have reported commercial relationships they’ve built with other members. Microsoft, Barclays Bank, Samsung, SAP, Techstars Accelerator, Euronews and Cheetah Mobile are among the world leading brands to have set up shop at Mindspace.
“Our members at Mindspace Hala Koszyki will enjoy an upscale coworking environment with inspiring unique design.” says Alroy. “The exceptional level of service they’ll receive from our caring Community Managers and the vibrant real-world community at our space will help them form meaningful relationships – both professional and personal – with other members aspiring for greatness, in Warsaw and around the world,״ he says.
Significant founding members at Mindspace Warsaw are excited to take their businesses to the next level. ״Mindspace is well-known in Europe as a strong coworking provider, facilitating business opportunities and exemplifying the future of work at its locations,״ says Pawel Panczyj, Managing Director at Poland’s leading organization representing the business services sector, ABSL. ״We are thrilled to join forces in advancing the business services industry in Poland,״ he says.
Innovatika, a Warsaw-based consultancy helping enterprises to organize corporate incubators and build startups on demand, is also among Mindspace Hala Koszyki’s members. “We are future makers of products and innovative teams in corporates, working with companies such as Millennium Bank, Bunge, Sodexo and Sony Music,” says Katarzyna Krolak-Wyszynska, CEO at Innovatika. “When we learned that Mindspace – in itself a maker of the new age of work environments – is opening in Warsaw, we immediately knew it’s a perfect place for what we do: thinking outside the box, bringing new products and services to life, and working with many companies around us to help them do the same.”
With an all-inclusive membership fee, members can work from multiple Mindspace offices, worldwide. The beautifully restored space at Hala Koszyki lets members maximize comfortable private offices, chic lounges and meeting rooms equipped with cutting-edge technology, IT support, and local and international art. There are also fully equipped kitchens with delicious refreshments to enjoy throughout the day. Mindspace is not short of learning opportunities and experiences either, with daily events on offer to help members upskill and network.
A wide range of both member-only and general public events are already planned for October, such as the ‘ABSL & Young Entrepreneurs Meetup,’ an email marketing workshop by FreshMail, a growth hacking seminar with Public Space, a Yoga class, and a Halloween-themed pumpkin carving activity and happy hour.
Open 24/7 for its members, Mindspace Hala Koszyki is located right above the market, at Koszykowa 61, Warsaw.
