Maison Breedewee is an innovative new coworking space in Luxembourg. The renovated house has been transformed into a place where professionals and entrepreneurs can meet, access advisory services and receive business support in an environment that fosters three key values: exchange, authenticity and connection. Communication Manager Laura Montereau invited Silicon inside the house and gave us a glimpse of the project.
What is the concept of Maison Breedewee?
Maison Breedewee is founded on four cornerstones: business club, events, club networking and startups. First and foremost, it is a business club that brings together passionate, curious and open-minded professionals looking to meet new people, launch new projects and create synergies. We organize events geared toward the specific needs and interests of our members. Through these events, our aim is to develop new business projects with entrepreneurs who wish to broaden their fields of activity. On the startup side, thanks to partnerships and collaborations, we can support young startups who have chosen Luxembourg as the hub to develop their business.
Our role is not as a classic coworking space: we only have 10 open-space stations, reserved for companies with a specific background.
Why did you decide to create a coworking space?
Workspaces have undergone a great transformation and the approach to collaboration has also evolved. In a place like Maison Breedewee, where you meet and exchange ideas, it seemed logical to create an open space where various complementary skills and diverse profiles could come together.
Our role is not as a classic coworking space: we only have 10 open-space stations, reserved for companies with a specific background. These spots are ideal for new Luxembourgish entities, for example, that can benefit from the fiduciary services available on our premises.
Furthermore, our lease contracts have a maximum duration of one year. In this way, we are always meeting new professionals and supporting a variety of companies in their development.
We have a strong network that we leverage and can support startups established abroad but looking to expand their activities in Europe.
How are you getting involved in Luxembourg’s startup ecosystem?
We are not a startup incubator or accelerator as we do not have the full spectrum of resources. However, we have a strong network that we leverage and can support startups established abroad but looking to expand their activities in Europe.
Luxembourg is a great place for startups due to its infrastructure and central position in Europe. We can provide startups with a list of key contacts, take care of all the administrative and accounting tasks, and find investors and external premises.
