BASE10 was started back in 2017 by entrepreneurs two Uppsala based entrepreneurs Jason Dainter and Kristofer Klerfalk. The pair, who were passionate about igniting and enhancing the startup scene within Uppsala, felt that there was a lack of entrepreneur led spaces where startups could come together and meet each other, work, attend events, and find ongoing opportunities and support.
Fast forward to today, and BASE10's 'pilot' version currently located at Klostergatan 10 in Uppsala was a huge success. with 500+ members joining to date, and many thousands attending the 60+ startup events held per year, BASE10 has become the beating heart of the startup community.
In late 2018 BASE10 secured additional financial support from Uppsala Kommun and Region Uppsala and has now announced that a lease has been signed to relocate BASE10 from its existing building to Juvelen. Juvelen is Uppsalas newest architechturally impressive building located right on the central station. BASE10 will operate approxinately 1300 sq meters set across 3 floors and all spaces are being custom build and designed for BASE10 from ground up.
The move will take place on 1st November 2019, and the vast majority of startups currently renting space at BASE10 will be moving over with us, along with some new startups joining us. An example of the layout and available rooms can be see in this document and a walkthrough of the space showing where each room will be can be seen below.
Private rooms are reserved for those building startups with strong growth potential, but BASE10's hotdesk plans (space in shared rooms) are available to a wider audience. See this page to read more on our membership types.
As part of the new venue BASE10 will open a dedicated events space on the 1st floor, which will host approximately 100 people (with seperate mingle area, coffee area, as well as equiptment with stage, screen, mics etc). If you are interested in hosting an event at BASE10 and utilising our network to promote it to many thousands of startup entrepreneurs then head over to our Events page which has more information on the booking process.
