“We’re excited to open our Viktualienmarkt coworking space for business, following a high demand and with almost full occupancy. Approximately 200 members will start today their very first day of work at Mindspace today.” said Dan Zakai, Co-founder and CEO of Mindspace. “Mindspace brings together startups, investors, businesses from all industries, and large enterprises to create a productive atmosphere of innovation and collaboration.
