This has turned out to be a great success: the low accommodation costs enable start-ups to invest in growth and in expanding their business. As a result, a number of start-ups are now so successful that they have become regular tenants. The coffee corner is the social heart of the building; a meeting place for students, entrepreneurs and locals.
Over half of the companies that moved into the building are connected to the UvA. The diversity of start-ups creates a wide variety of products and services. For example, the Sex matters Foundation provides training and workshops on gender and sexuality, and Leeruniek is developing a dashboard that allows you to easily adjust a personal curriculum, depending on the student's level at that moment. Anywyse brings together education and a popular medium, making summaries of books available through podcasts.
With this accommodation concept, the UvA creates social added value to The University Quarter where BG5 is located. This area is undergoing a major transformation until 2025: it will be house an open city campus where the Faculty of Humanities and the new University Library will be located.
