At STARTPLATZ, community members & employees share not only the workplace, but also knowledge, successes, mistakes and, of course, the lunch break. We believe in the potential of every idea - regardless of its origin. That's why we actively promote open exchange and want to give everyone the chance to develop - especially our employees.
In addition to 6,500 square meters of office space in Cologne's Mediapark and Düsseldorf's Medienhafen, we have created the DIGITAL STARTPLATZ as a platform for founders, innovation drivers and interested parties to exchange ideas and network. There, we offer daily digital networking events, workshops and exchange events to accompany and support founders on their way.
The STARTPLATZ is a place of inspiration, support and motivation - both for our members and our colleagues. Above all, we want to support our employees to develop and do what they do best. We believe that the best results are achieved when everyone does exactly what their heart is set on! Thus, the STARTPLATZ is a place where employees can practice being founders themselves by having the opportunity to work independently on their own projects and in their own areas. At STARTPLATZ, everyone is allowed to implement their own ideas and even make mistakes - because that is part of development!
We rely on a 'per-you-culture' instead of rigid hierarchies
We support each other in every area
We don't want a delegation
We give you responsability early on
We leave you to do what you do best
We are looking for fast & efficient solutions
We create an environment in which communication takes place at eye level and a family-like relationship develops. So it sometimes happens that you find the STARTPLATZ team at the foosball table at lunchtime or on hot summer days at a joint barbecue.
