Amsterdam has no shortage of coworking spaces. Yet the growth of the number of desks is nowhere near finished. TQ, formerly known as ‘X’, today has opened up for its first resident startups to move into their third floor office spaces. At the beginning of each month, up until official opening in October, a new floor will open to “accommodate a fresh batch of startup talent”.
Curated tech space
TQ is in their words “a curated tech space”. Founded by The Next Web, in close cooperation with the likes of Google, Booking.com, ABN Amro, the tech hub aims to push tech startups towards exponential growth. It will also serve as a “label for growth” by providing their residents with the right talent, tools and training.
TQ: online community
As is required these days with coworking spaces, they rely heavily on building a strong community with an online platform. Next to coworking, TQ offers meeting rooms, an event floor, and a cafe on the top floor. Below, you’ll find a sneak peek how it looks.
Location will be on top of the Bloemenmarkt (Singel 542-548), not too far from its competitors The Startup Orgy, Spaces and WeWork. Robert Gaal, a seasoned Dutch tech entrepreneur who founded Wakoopa, Karma and worked at Google, will lead the hub as managing director.
