Shared workspace company Mindspace is setting up a new shared work space site in the Polish capital of Warsaw. The site covers 3,000 sq.m. on three floors above a commercial center. The space rented by the company is the largest part of a five-storey building. The company plans to sublet the space on the model it uses in Israel and elsewhere in the world. The leased space does not include parking places.
The building in which Mindspace is renting space, located on the Hala Kosyzki site, includes a historic food market dating back to 1904. The floors rented by the company are located above this food market.
In the framework of the new Warsaw center, the company will offer for rent a "hot desk" - a work table with no permanent location and seating on the basis of available space - starting from 840 zlotys (€200); a fixed station that includes a fixed work desk in one of the open work spaces starting at 1,200 zlotys (€300), and an office for four employees starting at 6,695 zlotys (€1,595).
As of now, the company operates four sites in Berlin and Hamburg and additional sites in Israel on Rothschild and Ahad Ha'am Streets in Tel Aviv.
Mindspace cofounder and CEO Dan Zakai said, "We are glad to announce the company's expansion to another market in Europe. Warsaw is a dynamic market that is developing rapidly as a result of economic forces and innovation. As a result, a need has arisen for shared workspaces for startups, small businesses, and large companies that understand the changes taking place in the labor market, and regard Warsaw as one of the global centers for recruiting employees in the coming years."
Founded in 2014 by Zakai and Yotam Alroy, Mindspace has raised $15 million to date. The company currently employs a staff of 60 in Israel and Germany. Prominent investors in Mindspace include auto importer Colmobil co-owner Yoav Harlap, real estate developer Kobi Rogovin, and Altshuler Shaham Ltd. co-owner Gilad Altshuler.
