EXPO REAL: Spaces for Scaleups - Panel Discussion with ShareYourSpace

Fast-growing startups, scaleups, and young companies in Munich face significant challenges: How to easily find suitable, affordable office space? And an office that allows the organization to grow flexibly? Lacking real estate expertise, capacity for searching spaces, and under time pressure, companies leaving incubation centers like MTZ, Werk1, UnternehmerTUM, or the famous "Garage" or those wishing to move to Munich experience tedious "Buchbinder Wanninger" situations or end up in the shark tank of brokers. Yet, the journey to the next office should be quick, short, and simple. Find instead of search! Book, move in! Here, the new online platform Spaces4Scaleups helps. Initiated by the city of Munich, this unique service in Germany includes a wide, exclusive range of curated workspaces specifically for the dynamic target group mentioned. The spaces come from well-known real estate partners – e.g., Accumulata, Stadtsparkasse München, Design Offices, Hammer, DIBAG, Hines, Art Invest. We have accompanied the project from the first step with ShareYourSpace, our digital marketplace for offering and booking these spaces, including online lease signing, insurance, and payment processing.

Nadin Heinich interviewed Stefan Schillinger, managing director of the Accumulata Group, Alexander Schmidbauer from the economic development of the city of Munich, and Dr. Tobias Wagner, CEO of ShareYourSpace, about the concept and necessity of the new digital platform at EXPO REAL. Statements and insights: Startups and scaleups are the future of Munich's business location, their development and promotion are of essential importance for strengthening the metropolitan region. Dynamic companies need flexible office solutions without rigid, long-term minimum lease terms. Traditional office offerings do not reflect these flexibility requirements. The coronavirus was a catalyst for the transformation of the classic office: from the head office of the old world to the home office in the coronavirus era to the third workspace everywhere and at any time in the new world. Office as a Service through coworking and sharing will become standard like sharing and the temporary provision of accommodation at Airbnb. Instead of gross floor area, pre-configured spaces with service on demand are in demand. Project developers benefit from enriching their office locations with startups and scaleups - keywords cultural change, lifetime value of the tenant (from small to large, from temporary to long-term). Spaces4Scaleups enables workspace providers to tap into the segment of innovative, rising, tech-focused tenants unknown in the real estate world. Spatial and temporal flexibility will have a positive monetary impact for developers and landlords. Sharing, coworking, Spaces4Scaleups contribute to ESG.
