Co-Working & real estate

Starter Kit

Finding the ideal workplace

If you feel the need to escape your own four walls, you can relocate your business to a co-working space, an office space, a business centre, or a start-up centre. Here, founders can either rent a single workspace, an office, or an entire office floor. Rental periods tend to be flexible and key infrastructure such as meeting rooms, joint kitchens and reception desks are provided. The physical proximity facilitates in-depth exchange and communication with other entrepreneurs.

There are various work and office spaces available for founders in Hamburg. Many landlords and real estate brokers have now adjusted their services to cater for new enterprises by offering premises that are suited to grow with the business.
