Start-ups, talent and educational events at Budapest’s brand new co-working space, HubHub6.6.2018
HubHub, the co-working concept from international real estate developer HB Reavis has announced the opening its first space in Hungary by the end of this year. The debuting brand will occupy a total area of 2,400 sq m at the well-known downtown hub, Király street. The new office is not only about state-of-the-art space, but education, the pooling of talent and community building will also be strong pillars of its presence.
With the new space in Budapest as well as offices in Warsaw, Bratislava and soon in Prague, HubHub will serve the whole V4 region. The construction of the Hungarian premises is based on the concept by HB Reavis but the renowned local MádiLáncos Studio’s designers and architects will also be involved. The idea is to create a space that provides inspiring working conditions for freelancers, start-ups and scale-ups offering membership for up to 300 members. Everyone will be able to rent space, from one desk to an entire office, with access to the select premises 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
One of the most difficult challenges in real estate in the past 25 years has been the change in workspace and work culture. That is why HubHub is creating progressive workspaces. The new co-working office is not only about spacious and uniquely furnished rooms, but also about building a community-oriented work society. HubHub will host structured educational event series on different topics with the aim being to get members and a wider community of people deeper into the theme. The plan is to involve local corporations, universities, and NGOs in these programs as partners.
Thanks to its relationship with HB Reavis, HubHub provides opportunities for start-ups and entrepreneurs to connect with big businesses across multiple territories in an authentic and organic way through networking and educational programs. Similar to the other HubHub locations, the Budapest space will also be used as a community building: in Bratislava the office hosts vernissages of young artists and in Warsaw, due to the excellent location in the second largest business district, they already have a strong connection with employees from neighbouring companies and therefore organize various types of events together. All members have unique access to the events, with many of them also open to the bright minds and talent from the local neighbourhood.
“To say HubHub is just a co-working network would be an understatement. HubHub isn’t just a place, so much as a state of mind. Our mission is to be the pan-European talent ecosystem leader: we are dedicated to creating and maximizing opportunities between members and the wider ecosystem by offering the full package of co-working and value-adding programming,” said Natalia Kiskova, Head of Global Coworking Spaces at HubHub.
“As an international real estate developer, we always consider the impact of HB Reavis’ buildings and how our developments can have an effect on people’s lives. No matter whether or not we are only talking about Agora Budapest, user experience is the most important part of our job. We see our partners – whoever and wherever they are – as human beings, not as business goals. I am glad that HubHub Budapest is also going to be an active part of this vision, as its goal is to help people to get the most out of themselves,” said Jan Hübner, CEO of HB Reavis Hungary.
