News facts:

  • Fujitsu is the exclusive hardware sponsor for hyprspace, Germany's first startup co-living and co-working house, located in Munich
  • Sponsorship gives hyprspace’s startups and entrepeneurs access to Fujitsu’s advanced collaboration technologies
  • Hybrid home and work environment provides Fujitsu with a valuable testing ground for new innovation in Future Workplace technologies
Munich, May 14, 2018 – Fujitsu is the exclusive hardware sponsor for hyprspace1 – Germany’s first startup house, located in Munich. Advanced collaboration technologies such as creative digital displays are provided by Fujitsu for 17 flatmates living and working in hyprspace, with user feedback providing valuable insights for Fujitsu’s Future Workplace product testing programs.
Startup houses, providing a creative and inspiring environment where early-stage startups can accelerate their development, were pioneered in the San Francisco / Bay Area and are now starting to appear in Europe. hyprspace opened in the Munich district of Ramersdorf in the spring of last year and is now home to 17 residents active in the startup ecosystem across diverse technology areas including E-Mobility, FinTech, E-Learning, Industry 4.0 and Smart Jewelry.
Heinz Wagner, Head of Future Workplace offerings Client Computing Devices at Fujitsu, says: “The way we work is changing, and that rate of change is still accelerating. We can’t yet say how exactly the Future Workplace will look, but initiatives like hyprspace provide important insights for Fujitsu, allowing us to develop human-centric technologies that anticipate and satisfy the needs of people and organizations in the future. Startups operate in the hottest of hothouse environments where these trends are most visible, therefore we expect to learn a lot from our collaboration with hyprspace.”
Florian Oberhofer, Co-Founder of hyperspace, comments: “Collaboration is what gets startups over the hurdles they face in their early stages. They don’t have the resources to recruit all the skills and experience needed, so living in a community where these can be shared is a massive advantage. Fujitsu’s deep commitment to collaborative working and its sponsorship will give us access to the latest technologies for supporting people in co-creation projects and driving faster growth.”
