The Factory model

Cities thrive through local innovation.

Factory designs, builds and operates campuses for startups and fast-growing tech companies. By partnering with actors from the public and private sector as well as local startup communities Factory brings innovation into urban areas in need of revitalization.

We focus on tastefully repurposing iconic sites, designing the ideal location to cluster technology and creative companies. Our efforts work to support the new tech economy while bringing a new breath of life to urban centers.



Born in 2012 in Berlin as a flexible workspace solution for small and large companies, Factory has grown into a leading developer recognized for adaptive re-use projects and for transforming neighborhoods across Europe, creating economic, social and political impact in the process.

Our mission is to benefit not just those within our locations, but the wider community and cities that embrace us.
