Foodlab is defined as a Coworking for gastronomic entrepreneurs, to help improve their productivity and launch their culinary projects, thanks to a supportive community.
Foodlab is the first project aimed at cuisine, developed by Urban Campus, the European startup, specialised in creating shared and collaborative coliving and coworking spaces.
This new space is located in Madrid. In it entrepreneurs from the food industry can create, test and start-up their businesses, without the demand of a large economic investment to get things going. Located in the heart of the capital, Foodlab has spaces to carry out ‘foodie’ activities, such as ‘show-cookings’ and tastings, and host events that help shine a light on emerging businesses. In addition, many of the Foodlab members distribute their food daily through delivery platforms, as with its professional kitchen it’s the perfect environment to cook without investing huge amounts of money on opening a restaurant.
Foodlab is defined as an infrastructure-level tool that improves entrepreneurial productivity because it allows members to have a coworking space and a fully equipped professional kitchen in one place, that can be booked for hours or days, adapted to the needs of each business. It also offers networking spaces where you can engage in conversation with other professionals in the sector.
Urban Campus currently has a community of more than 250 people who share ideas, resources, and contacts to launch or boost their businesses, depending on the phase in which it is in.
