rent24 was established in 2015 in order to create a concept to support the entire business world – either through offices, accommodation, events or networking.

As one of the leading coworking and coliving provider rent24 is expanding fast and will open up to eight new locations in 2017.

YOUR BUSINESS

What is your core business? 

The core business of rent24 is offering fully equipped working spaces for coworking as well as convenient and stylish micro apartments for coliving.

Each location has a unique touch, but lets you flow in the inspiring rent24 design. Overall, the aura comes with the community.

Through networking events, an intranet and the personal connection in-between the members, people grow together and profit from numerous synergies.

In addition, rent24 established the accelerator r24-ventures in order to support promising new ideas and products.

With international mentors and special programs to help the early stagers with their needs, this offers an additional benefit from having a rent24-membership.

How did you get to your business idea and when was your company established?

I am active in the Startup-scene since more than 15 years. In this time, I founded, sold and consulted companies as well as advised investors.

I experienced how “old-fashioned” the real estate industry was and how inconvenient for startups and entrepreneurs.

Therefore, I established the rent24 concept: Inspiring designed office space hosting innovative startups and established companies.

The atmosphere at rent24 spaces is incomparable and thus creates a unique network.

At the moment, rent24 is active in Germany and the Netherlands. The flagship coworking space is located in central Berlin, right at the famous Gendarmenmarkt.

Besides, we have several locations in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich and Dortmund.

In addition, we see a huge potential in Amsterdam. As a result, we will open there two coworking spaces.

We have an on boarding process and therefore give our best to help new employees when relocating.
