Peper in je Pand acquires ./utrecht
Utrecht startup community expands by 10,000 sq/m
./utrecht (Dotslash Utrecht), an Utrecht-based startup hub, is going through a significant change and expansion of its community this year. On 1 April, Peper in je Pand took over Dotslash and moved its offices from its previous location at De Stadstuin. This means that Dotslash Utrecht’s office space will grow by approximately 15,000 square meters at Europalaan 100 and 400. Since it opened last year, De Stadstuin, has continued its growth strategy and will shift open three new locations in 2019, including its first location in Rotterdam.
Dotslash Utrecht is more than an office space. It’s a lively community where entrepreneurs meet corporates, investors and entrepreneurs to accelerate the growth of their startups. Jelle Drijver, owner of Peper in je Pand says, "We are pleased about this opportunity. In addition to the expansion in square meters, we will also continue to look for new partners. Our goal is to connect with others to strengthen our ecosystem. Annebel van Rijn, who previously worked at JIM (Jaarbeurs Innovation Mile), is joining us as a Community Manager, which will also strengthen our team. '
Rabobank, Capgemini, SHV, Deloitte, Philadelphia, Walvis, the Municipality of Utrecht and StartupUtrecht are already part of the Dotslash network and community.
