Meet Jan Hoffmann-Keining, Spacebase’s co-founder and CMO. He knows a thing or two about hotel meeting rooms—as a former consultant, he spent nearly 200 nights a year on the road. Bored by the hotel environment and impressed by what the sharing economy offered business travelers in terms of unique, non-traditional lodging, he wondered if the same principle could be applied to meeting space. Hence, Spacebase was born, and since 2014 the Berlin-based startup has been changing the way people meet by providing unique, exciting venues that inspire meeting goers. Its most outrageous space to date? A boxing gym in Berlin, where the elevated ring serves as a perfect podium for presentations, panel discussions, and even pointed debates! The company has gone from two employees to 12 in just two years, and its clients range from media and tech companies to more conservative industries looking to change the mood with an interesting meeting space. To hear more about Spacebase’s cool venues, its business model, and Hoffmann-Keining’s ultimate advice for entrepreneurs, watch the full video!
