Top 5 Coolest Coworking Spaces in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is home to many large companies, and new startups are born every day. As their requirements for office space change, there is a need to accommodate these changes. Having a large fixed office is expensive and inefficient, leading to the rise of a vibrant market for shared, flexible office spaces. 

So, how do all these coworking spaces differentiate from each other? They have differentiated themselves based on services, design, ambiance, community and networking options, amenities and services, location and accessibility, and sustainability and eco-friendliness. 

How do I know which one is good? Often, the best way to find out is to try. To get you started, we have listed 5 cool coworking spaces with unique features and characteristics.

Many tech startups are using it as their base and they have a strong community revolving around anything to do with tech. Hackers & Founders also has meeting rooms, dedicated desks and kitchen access available for their members.

Fosbury and Sons

Fosbury and Sons have taken a different approach to their decor and rely on a more traditional approach with calm colors and interiors. They have elegantly decorated office spaces where you can get the important work done and then relax in their restaurant and enjoy a meal or a drink. They offer front desk and mail handling services and even a local event manager is available to help with corporate events if required. 

Why does Amsterdam have a thriving coworking scene? 

Work has been constantly evolving and this has recently been boosted by global events and trends. Bigger portion of the work can be done remotely and companies have become more flexible in their policies. 

These are some of the reasons why the number of remote workers and digital nomads has been on the rise. Previously, occasional work emails could have been sent from a coffee shop, but now the demand for coworking spaces with more amenities and services has grown significantly. A good coworking space will offer space for team work and private phone calls, for example. 

People using co-working spaces also appreciate the option to avoid commuting to the head office and the opportunities for networking as working from home can be lonely and not everyone has ample space to set up their workstation. For companies flexibility and cost-effectiveness are key drivers to provide access to co-working spaces for their employees.
