On August 10th, another co-working space has opened in Amsterdam. Merkspace is a full-service start-up incubator and co-working space in Tel Aviv focused on startups that want to grow to potentially international heights. At this new location, Merkspace offers full-service flex desks and office space for approximately 40 startups and hosts events to connect Dutch entrepreneurs with the international start-up scene.
Merkspace is founded by Sapir Spigel and her father. This young Israeli entrepreneur believes in the power of a community. She also states the following: “‘It is important to work in a place where you feel comfortable. Feeling at home is key”. For this reason, the concept is located at the Herengracht in the center of Amsterdam. The luxuriously decorated historic and characteristic building is what the start-ups at Merkspace Amsterdam will call home. Merkspace Amsterdam currently hosts about 20 startups and still has room for 15 to 20 other startups.
