Mindspace is an operator of co-working spaces, which gathers the community of over 10 000 members (employees of innovative project teams, start-ups, small and medium companies, investments units, entrepreneurs and freelancers). After the expansion into the European markets, it is high time for the USA. The new locations will be launched in two cities: San Francisco and Washington.
Mindspace in San Francisco will be launched in Q2 2018. It will be located in Market Center Building at 575 Market Street and it will occupy three floors of the total space amounting to over 3300 sq. m. The new location will hold up to 600 members.
The co-working space Washington D.C. will be located in One Franklin Square at 13031 K Street. This building is also a head office of The Washington Post. The opening of Mindspace Washington D.C. is also envisaged for Q2 2018. The space will occupy nearly 3000 sq. m and it was designed for over 500 people.
The expansion to the USA is a significant milestone for Mindspace. Thanks to the success of our co-working solutions in Europe, I believe that the American companies, start-ups and entrepreneurs will be positively surprised by our professional standard. We offer a plug&play formula, which means that companies can devote their precious time for businesses and their growth, whereas we will take care of the rest. The members of Mindspace community can benefit from private offices, lounge, conference halls equipped with the newest technology, fully equipped kitchens, or social events organized every week. We are planning to announce new locations of Mindspace on the American market in 2018. Moreover, we are also keeping track of the opportunities on the Polish market – says Dan Zakai, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board at Mindspace.
