Designed with startups in mind
TNW (The Next Web) is set to open TQ South, an additional branch of the popular TQ co-working space catering to the local tech industry, in Amsterdam-Zuid. The new location will be situated in Tripolis, a trio of office buildings that is already home to TNW.
Scheduled to open in May 2019, the branch follows the 2016 launch of TQ in central Amsterdam. Founded through a partnership with several companies – including Booking.com and Google – the space quickly became home to more than 200 businesses. Both Dutch and international startups established themselves there, including Tripaneer and Flexport.
Meeting a growing demand
By opening the new location, TNW hopes to meet the growing demand for office space amongst startups and scale-ups in Amsterdam. The Tripolis complex consists of three structures and was designed by Aldo van Eyck, a Dutch architect. TQ’s space will have offices for scale-ups and a space for early-stage startups. Additionally, it will feature a Corporate Innovation Lab where government departments and corporations and can host events and share new developments.
Tenants at TQ South will enjoy a range of benefits, including lockers, parking, mail processing, meeting rooms, booths for private phone calls and an events space. It will also have an affordable option designed for young startups, making it possible for them to join the growing community.
