Stephan van Eken
Young students and entrepreneurs Johan Assink, Carsten van Eken, Stephan van Eken, Thom Wernke and Jan Hein de Wilde knew eachother from Faculty Association EOS, a study association of the Faculty of Social Sciences on the VU University in Amsterdam. The 5 young students stood in a studentbar, discussing: “Alright, we do have our own businesses, but we have no proper office. How great would this idea be: A building, on a central location in the very heart of our beautiful city Amsterdam, totally full of start-ups like ours, sharing resources, network and entrepreneurial ideas?”
We opened the first 300m2 of StartDock coworking on the Herengracht in Amsterdam. The goal: to fill the 300m2 by June 2016, so that we could quickly rent out the remaining 300m2 of the building.
The first 300m2 of the building on Herengracht was filled. From now on, StartDock could get started with the remaining 300m2 of the building. The StartDock coworking concept is growing very fast.
StartDock expands location # 1 to Herengracht 418.
Another 300 m² of coworking in the building next to Herengracht 420, fortunately both buildings are internally connected!
StartDock opens location # 2 in Amsterdam: Location StartDock Keizersgracht. Another 900m2 of coworking in a monumental-classical location, in the heart of the center of Amsterdam.
StartDock opens location # 3 in Rotterdam: Location StartDock Westplein. 1400m2 coworking at a monumental-classical location, in the beautiful Scheepsvaartkwartier in Rotterdam.
StartDock opens location #4 in Amsterdam: Location StartDock Prins Hendrikkade. You can find our newest location directly across Amsterdam Central station.
On January 1st 2023 StartDock will open its fifth location. This time not a location that we start up from A to Z, but an existing coworking space of 800m2 that StartDock took over from the founder. The coworking space is called 'Wheelhouse', houses a community of entrepreneurs in the creative sector (communication & media) and is located at Achtergracht 17-19, Amsterdam.
