Technopolis shares space in Stockholm
Finnish Technopolis has announced it will open UMA Kungsbron, its first office space in the Swedish capital, in April next year.
The space Technopolis has leased is located in the centre of the city, and it will have about 50 small offices, 90 hot desks and 10 shared conference rooms.
UMA Kungsbron is Technopolis’ first office space in Stockholm. The company already has operations further south in Gothenburg.
UMA Workspace is Technopolis’ network of coworking offices. Its flagship space, UMA Esplanadi, opened in Helsinki last year, and it has already been expanded due to strong customer demand.
UMA offers shared workspace and service solutions in central business district locations, where customers can work either in the privacy of their own serviced offices or as part of the UMA open working community. Technopolis plans to build up a network of 20 new UMA spaces in the major cities of the Nordic and Baltic Sea region.
“For big companies, UMA works as an extension to their main office, while small companies are likely to benefit from the networking opportunities that these spaces provide,” says Niko Pulli, director of services at Technopolis. “I think that our space in Stockholm will have the same profile as in Helsinki. We have a lot of roaming customers and we believe that many of them will use our new UMA on their business trips in Stockholm.”
Currently Technopolis has 12 UMAs in Finland, Norway, Estonia, Russia and Lithuania. Customers have access to all of them with one membership.
