WILL I BE WORKING AT NEST?
NEST will not be your "second workspace". It will be your home. Think of it as a shared apartment with people who share the same interest for making things happen, people who are driven to create things. But also people who enjoy biking, running, working out, cooking, watching a good series or meditating. Even workaholics need to get their head away from time to time this is the possibility to do that with like minded people.
OKAY, OKAY - BUT HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD I LIVE WITH?
NEST Copenhagen consists of 4 apartments with room for 20 entrepreneurs. Meaning you'll be living in an apartment with 4-6 people - Having your own room of course, you'll share a big kitchen with your 3-5 roommates living in your apartment. Everyone living in NEST will of course be carefully picked, making sure that everyone is there with the same purpose of being social with like minded people.
SO I'LL HAVE TO SHARE TOILET/BATHROOM WITH 5 PEOPLE?
No. We wouldn't want to share a bathroom with more than two people, so we don’t expect you to. There will be two bathrooms in each apartment so you’ll only have to share it with one or two people.
HOW OLD/YOUNG WILL THE PEOPLE LIVING HERE BE?
As a rule of thumb, we'll take in people that are between 21 and 35. However if you are extremely awesome and unbelievable hungry to move in - forget this rule and make a world class application we cannot ignore!
WHERE IS THIS PLACE LOCATED?
At Reventlowsgade 10, 1651 Copenhagen V. Right next to Copenhagen Central Station, close to Tivoli, the Copenhagen lakes and the Meatpacking District - SMACK downtown!
SO A BUILDING DOWNTOWN WITH 20 YOUNG PEOPLE... I SEE THIS BECOMING ONE BIG PARTY HOUSE?!
Definitely not. Of course there will be some partying, but this will be a home for some of the most ambitious and visionary young people. Everyone will be there to learn and improve themselves by living with like minded people who "work" most of the time.
HOW OFTEN WILL I HANG OUT WITH THE OTHER NEST'ERS?
Of course that’s up to you to decide. However you can of course expect to meet your roommates in the kitchen daily and the other NEST’ers at the event space. This will be the place where we watch TED talks, Game of Thrones, play games, chill, discuss the latest startup trend or exit and of course have parties!
CAN MY BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND MOVE INTO MY ROOM WITH ME?
No he/she can't. You can of course have people over and people staying a night or two in your room, but you are not allowed to "live" two people in one room.
WILL I HAVE TO DO THE DISHES?
No! We don't want you to waste time doing the dishes - we've got dishwashers.
DO WE HAVE ACCESS TO WASHING MACHINES?
Yep. There will be a cheap coin operated launderette with washing machines in the basement.
LET'S SAY I'M A REALLY TIDY PERSON. WILL I END UP CLEANING AFTER EVERYONE?
No, not at all. We've hired cleaning personnel to clean the open areas, also included in the rent. Also cleaning rules will be described in the House Rules. If not followed, and ignoring the warnings you can be thrown on the street.
WILL IT BE A CLOSED HOUSE ONLY FOR THE PEOPLE LIVING THERE?
No not at all. We want to make a house for the whole startup community. Of course with respect for the people living there, but we want it to be a place people can visit and hang out, the "place to be" for foreign entrepreneurs visiting Copenhagen. We believe that by "opening" it up we’ll get a healthy flow of great people in the building, adding to everyones network and inspiration.
HOW MUCH WILL ALL THIS COST?
The rent will depend on the size of your room. We have calculated the square meter price for all of NEST and divided that out on the how many square meters you have access to. The rent will be between 4.500 and 8.000 kr. a month including everything, rent, internet, water, electricity, etc.
For a room downtown Copenhagen in a 5 room apartment, which is part of an exclusive community that you share with the brightest people you can imagine. There will of course be 3 months rent as a deposit (which of course won't be used unless you destroy something) plus 3 months rent paid in advance, because of your 3 months notice period (meaning that when you are ready to fly from NEST you don't pay the last 3 months rent)
DO YOU GUYS EARN ANYTHING ON THIS?
No we don't. We move into the house like everyone else. And yes - We pay the same rent as everyone else as well, there is no "economic" upside to us by getting this off the ground. We really just want to live in this community ourselves!
