Entrepreneurial Hive is a Coworking space located in the Abrahamsonska house of commerce, built in the late 19th century and with a grand view over Harry Hjörnes Plaza. The Abrahamsonska house of commerce was at that time one of the most central buildings in Gothenburg and in accordance with ideals of the renaissance it was located at the plaza where all important streets meet, also called the heart of Gothenburg. Today is the plaza a vivid place and just outside the doors you will find a magnificent variety of restaurants and stores.

Behind renascence walls you will find a Coworking space  with an interesting mix of historcal and modern design. Our space has nine meeting and conference rooms and one large event area/ lounge, 14 fixed workdesks, and 50+ flexible co-working seats. We also have a communal kitchen. In our conference rooms you can have workshops, seminars, coaching, meetings, trainings; and in the lounge you can have everything from kick-offs, company events, and other celebrations. All rooms are carefully furnished and equipped with everything you need to work or have an inspiring event for you and your customers

Entrepreneurial Hive is open to the public from 9:00am-5pm on Monday- Friday, but evening events and memberships that include 24/7 access mean that the building can be buzzing with activity anytime.
