Hybrid working is the trend. Many employees want to decide for themselves where they work. And it doesn't always have to be the company headquarters or the home office. Companies are also taking advantage of flexible coworking options in the region. This saves space and costs. "Young companies from the life sciences quite literally need space to develop," remarks André Domin. However, the search for suitable laboratories and workshops is more complex than for offices. In addition, there are specific requirements: "Many startups only need this space temporarily. And they want the best possible support and as like-minded a community as possible."
This summer, many startups in the life science sector can get started in Heidelberg - then the BioLabs building at the Heidelberg Innovation Park will be ready and the startups will have the best conditions to grow.
In fully equipped coworking-like labs and offices, the young companies - with professional advice if needed - can focus entirely on their core task, namely evaluation of their business idea: "Does my approach work?"
