Our Team.

Leaving the business etiquette at home.

Meanwhile, we have liberated more than 37,500 event participants from boring meeting routines, but we are still far away from reaching our goal. Every day, we combine hospitality service with an outstanding feel-good atmosphere, design aesthetics and functionality. There’s one thing the team is absolutly sure of: Everybody deserves an unforgettable team event!

smartvillage – An ecosystem of NEW-WORK enablers.

We see ourselves as business enablers for the working world of the future. With our sustainably-grown ecosystem of outfitters, event managers, architects, and new-work specialists, we design agile working environments that challenge the status quo of seminars, workshops, and corporate events. We are convinced: home office or the “classic office” might be suitable places for productive work, but we’ll need a hotspot for physical encounters, communication, and creativity as well. A place like smartvillage. 

Our history: From coworking to a hotspot of agile meeting-culture 

We’ve always been ignited by the idea of redefining the way people work with each other. When we started our coworking adventure six years ago, we were pioneers for a new understanding of work. We replaced hierarchical thinking and business etiquette with empathy, unconventional designs, and collaboration. The vision of our founders: Creating a place for interpersonal interaction and better collaboration that feels like “home”.  

Three years later, we brought the “community character” of coworking to the meeting world and radically turned the traditional meeting industry upside down. At this time, we had no idea how quickly we would reach our goal of establishing smartvillage as second home for teams from different branches. Today, our workshop campus in Munich – opened in 2018 – is a well-known meeting point for exciting encounters, openness, and genuine experiences. With our 2019-opened second location in Finland, smartvillage already offers two individual spaces for unforgettable event experiences. Shaped by people and experiences. Designed for future-ready work.

Our values

smartvillage is #HOME. 

We are who we are – away from roles, hierarchies, and masquerade. We’re strong when we trust each other. One team, one goal. Our guests are part of the story and contribute to the uniqueness of our locations with their own personalities. 

  

Our passion is #REAL. 

We enjoy hospitality service and respond professionally and individually to each of our visitors. We are drunk with joy because of what we do. Authentically, we give our best every day and inspire the smartvillage community with our passion.

We are grateful for our privileges and committed to complete climate neutrality as one of the pioneers in the meeting industry. Our Sustainability Task Team is working hard to make smartvillage a greener company and develops projects that have an equally positive impact on employees, our environment, our society, and our customers.  

 

#BOLDLY, we design our future. 

We are pioneers for unconventional and innovative business ecosystems. We are driven by opportunity and potential. Challenges ignite our creativity. We take risks in order to continually reinvent smartvillage and remain successful.
