What is Mindpark?
Mindpark is a creative zone. It contains:
- co-working space
- event location
- conference space
- public café
- business incubator
We are located next door to Lunds University Campus Helsingborg, which makes us very student-friendly, as well as right next to IKEA Headquarters, which makes us very big corporately, but we also have a business incubator, which makes us very startup-friendly. We are a melting pot of different people, ideas and ambitions.
Creativity & Productivity
These two words are our most important guidelines. We believe in creating an environment and community that is both creative as well as productive. It is in that mixture that great people thrive, great ideas are executed and the future is formed.
Where is Mindpark
Mindpark is located in central Helsingborg, in an old factory. Here, where previously shoes and rubber balls were produced, is now a hotspot of creative and service industries. The old factory has been refurbished and Mindpark has a remarkable design – a design that emphasizes the place’s industrial past as well as creates a great and open atmosphere.
What is Mindparks history?
Mindpark was started by Joakim Jardenberg and five major newspapers, as an adventure to take the traditional media in even better way to the digital frontier. Over time Mindpark changed focus, and became a blog platform for all things digital. Now Mindpark has become a physical manifestation of the guidelines that it has always followed, when SHIP was changed to Mindpark.
Joakim Jardenberg is now has the role of senior advisor and resident here at Mindpark, and you can follow him directly at jardenberg.se. Karsten Deppert is now the founder of Mindpark’s physical manifestation.
What was this SHIP?
SHIP was our physical location’s name before it changed to Mindpark. SHIP, just as Mindpark, has a past that has changed. Being started by Niklas Madsen and Emil Breman, together with the City of Helsingborg in 2007, to later become the headquarter of the H+ project and to being what it is today and has been for the last couple of years – a hotspot for entrepreneurship, creativity and productivity.
When our facilities were created the design and layout of the facilities were a central part, with Niklas Madsen as the central creator. It became a place that feels warm and bright, and success was achieved in creating an area that was both large and open as well as personal and small – all at once. A great design that still inspires us every day.
If you are interested in learning more, being a part of the Mindpark spirit or just want to have a tour of our facilities – don’t hesitate to contact us.
Take a virtual tour
Here you can take a digital tour - which does not fully convey the community and creativity atmosphere, but gives some kind of feeling at least. You can take a tour of the second floor and with the office spaces and most of the meeting- and conference rooms on our virtual tour page as well.
