Munich, May 30 — After setting itself as a coworking leader in Germany with its Berlin and Hamburg spaces, Mindspace continues its rapid expansion in Germany. Today, Mindspace announced its plan to open its sixth coworking space in Germany, at the historic Salvatorplatz in Munich.
Due to open in the winter of 2017, Mindspace’s new building will span over 4 floors and a total area of 2,200 sqm, and become home to more than 250 members. The new Mindspace location on Salvatorplatz 3 is right in front of the historic Salvatorkirche that was built in 1480. Right at the heart of the Bavarian capital, Mindspace will be situated in front of the Literaturhaus München (House of Literature) and the heritage-protected Salvatorgarage, which includes parts of the old medieval town wall and serves as a parking garage. Odeonsplatz metro station and Fünf Höfe shopping center are also a few minutes away. Together with its Viktualienmarkt space opening earlier in the summer, Mindspace would become the largest coworking provider in the Bavarian state capital.
Mindspace is a global provider of beautiful and inspiring co-working spaces for teams of all sizes. Founded in 2014 by Dan Zakai and Yotam Alroy, Mindspace operates multiple spaces in Israel, the Startup Nation, and has already established its leadership in Germany as an upscale coworking provider with its innovative spaces on Friedrichstraße in Berlin Mitte and Rödingsmarkt in Hamburg. Mindspace has raised to date over $15 million to expand globally. Earlier this year the company has already announced the upcoming opening of 3 new coworking spaces in Germany – two additional locations in Berlin as well as its first location in Munich, at the famous Kustermann building near Viktualienmarkt. The company also announced last week its expansion to yet another country – Poland – with a new coworking space opening in Warsaw this October.

“The German coworking market has enormous potential. The past year has been phenomenal for Mindspace and our communities in both Berlin and Hamburg,” said Dan Zakai, Co-founder and CEO of Mindspace. “Our spaces have become home for the world’s most innovative companies and entrepreneurs, who thrive in our cosmopolitan and caring community. Mindspace has established itself at the center of the innovation ecosystems in both Berlin and Hamburg, and we’re excited to enter Munich with two innovative spaces at prime locations: Viktualienmarkt and Salvatorplatz.” Zakai added, “Munich’s innovation ecosystems is quickly growing. Large enterprises, thousands of startups, and top universities are working hand in hand to advance this growth, with strong support from the Munich municipality and the State of Bavaria. We are honored to join this prestigious club of innovators in Munich and advance the city’s startup ecosystem at our spaces, events and through our global network.”
