Our office space

Our building comprises an area of 1000sqm in Nuremberg. Teams can rent our low-cost office spaces and use our event space for special occasions. A spacious coffee bar/kitchen warmly invites visitors and freelancers to a spontaneous chit-chat with our founders. Want more interaction? A large event area offers enough space for pitch events and start-up conferences.


We’re not a typical startup incubator. A great support system with in-house coders and designers helps you realize your ideas in no time! Our academic and corporate network guarantees the best possible technologies at hand. As we take on the role of a company builder, we’re focused on your needs and will pave your road towards success.

Your benefits.
