In the world of coworking, there are places where launching your startup is easier than others. Rainmaking Loft is definitely one of those.
On the morning of August 2nd, we went down to Christiana neighborhood to visit the Rainmaking Loft. Working out of the Berlin one, having visited the London one, I was quite curious to see how different Copenhagen would be from the 2 others. Believe me, I was not disappointed on that 🙂
Christian, the General Manager of the space, gave us a full tour of what has been recently elected the best office space of Denmark by Nordic Startup Awards. To me, the Rainmaking Loft Copenhagen has done an excellent job in showcasing Denmark strongest strength: interior design. Every single corner of what used to be “the space where the Royal Danish Navy equipped their men for battle” has been thought through. Beautiful furniture, high ceilings, light rooms, space, a lot of space: this is what the Rainmaking Loft is all about facility wise.
The most interesting part comes now: Rainmaking Loft is a space where you meet people. The 40 startups that sits there in Copenhagen have the ability to network and get connected to relevant investors thanks to the events organized by the core team. From seminars dedicated to corporates who want to get close to startups to meetups where you can learn how to grow your business. With events, the place suddenly changes from coworking space to dot connector between the old and the new economy. With the Rainmaking Loft, you get the opportunity to be challenged by people who try to understand your business and who ask you questions you might not have encountered before.
Last and least, the heart of the Rainmaking Loft is its tight community. Like-minded startups work next to each other and support each other. The Rainmaking Loft team call them “Heroes at work”. They created a space where those Heroes can create, fail, learn, meet and succeed. I got inspired after seeing the place and chatting with Christian about how the Rainmaking Loft caters the need of its Community.
We ended up our tour in front of the mirror where you can read the Rainmaking Loft Manifesto. And if you ever wonder why I am holding on a brick, the answer is: Christian is planning to print the logos of each team that sits here on it and build a small sculpture out of them. How cool is that 🙂
Christian, if you read this, thank you for your time! It was great to get inspired by you guys!
