Technopolis launched the first stand-alone coworking space - located outside the Technopolis’ campus network - in Helsinki in 2016, the second in downtown Stockholm in April, the third in the Copenhagen city center in September 2018 and another two UMA Workspaces will open in December in Oslo and Helsinki.

Within the next years, Technopolis aims to deploy their successful UMA coworking concept in other major cities in the Nordic and Baltic Sea region - aggressively, rapidly and professionally.

"The amount of freelancers and small businesses is rapidly increasing, while larger companies are exploring opportunities to exploit growing workplace mobility.

Cities already house some many traditional serviced offices, but only a few professional coworking spaces. Coworking spaces are still at the initial stage, and therefore the growth potential is tremendous," CEO of Technopolis, Keith Silverang states.

Nordic spirit

The UMA Workspaces offer a professional work environment with Nordic mentality and spirit: Inspiring, fresh and functional activity based office where people can focus on their work and at the same time have a community around them.

The premium shared workspaces have central locations with all the needed services ranging from digital solutions and modern conference rooms to specialty coffee and networking events. Customers get access to all of these spaces and facilities with a single membership.

“Companies are seeking more efficiency and flexibility in the volatile and rapidly changing business environment, but at the same time they need to attract the best talent by providing employees with centrally located, motivating and well-serviced workspaces.

Although office work has become increasingly mobile all over the world, we have noticed that people still need a home base for their outgoing work," Keith Silverang says.

Finnish challenge

Technopolis' first UMA Workspace in Copenhagen - housed in a 300-year-old historic building located in the very city center - is challenging the Danish market's leading providers like Regus, Ordnung, WEoffices, and others.

But global providers of serviced and flexible office spaces keep up their very optimistic views on the potentials, growth, and development of the future coworking market.

"In Denmark, we are facing a significant growth with current providers, new entrants have introduced their concepts to the market within the last 12 months, and other new international providers like Technopolis are targeting Copenhagen. This development happening in Denmark can be seen all across Europe," COO at MatchOffice, Martin Roerholt reports.

"The industry is undergoing huge developments, and we see a natural replacement already happening among the providers of serviced offices. I find it most interesting to follow how the current market competition is going to revolve the industry developing new concepts and locations to the powerful tenants."  ●
