Here is an iwibdus guide to coworking spaces across Dusseldorf and what you can expect from them*.
Our Shared Office Space in Kaiserwerth.
This small office doubles as a shared co-working space for women who want a flexible place to work and just a desk for the day. The space is equipped with wifi and drinks but you have to bring your own laptop.
There are 4 permanent desks and 3 flexible desks that are allocated through an online system – so you can book the desk when you want to.
The two of the founders of iwibdus are leasing the property so it’s our unofficial home!
Your Kitchen Table
Your kitchen table can be the start of a shared coworking space! If you are bored and think that you need support and joint thinking time with other women – then offer up your kitchen table to other women in the network. Use our facebook page to connect and ask for help. The network is all about women helping women – that’s why we are here!
The network started at a kitchen table. What will you start at yours?
Regus is a great resource to review what Dusseldorf coworking spaces can offer.
They have spaces all over the city. The Medienhafen, KO, Düsseldorf Airport and Königsallee. I haven’t listed them all here but they tend to get cheaper the further out of the centre you go.
They let you choose the package that is right for you – so you can have an office or just use a coworking space. You can have the address as your business address to look more professional and they have a full time receptionist. They offer networking and social events as part of the packages.
MY VIEW: Personally, I found the spaces were incredibly professional and easy to use but they were expensive if you wanted flexibility. The people change everyday and therefore are not very friendly. I wanted somewhere with more consistent people to build relationships.
Easyoffice is a comparative website and pulls together all the available choices across Düsseldorf. This website literally says the same thing as the other websites and asks you to log in to get a quote. MY VIEW: I would go directly to the company websites and then the location you like. You get a better feel for how you (and your customers) are going to be treated by the manager and the receptionist.
159 have flexible desks, fixed desks and meeting rooms. They can offer you the address as a fixed working address and other perks. They are based in Altbau auf der Hansaallee 159 in Düsseldorf/Oberkassel and are on the U74 and U76. They are near the Japanese International School. MY VIEW: The place is clean and fun. Great for a young professional.
This place is highly recommended by members of the network. You can get desks, offices, meeting rooms and even spaces for large conferences. They are based in Rather Straße. They claim they are the first place to offer coworking spaces in Düsseldorf. MY VIEW: Definitely have a look around. The network is usually right!
