WTC Rotterdam is located in the vibrant heart of the Rotterdam metropolis. It is where the national and international business community connects and where you’ll find shops, bars and restaurants, art exhibitions and soon also an in-house city gym. We lease high-quality office spaces, flexible working spaces and high-tech meeting facilities. We also offer a wide range of business services.
The listed historic building is currently undergoing a complete renovation and refurnishing. The result promises to be nothing short of fantastic. Our goal is to function as the hub of the Rotterdam business and cultural communities within a few years.
“Our founder, Wim Rust, who came up with the Spaarhypotheek (savings deposit mortgage) always lived and worked in Rotterdam. The Rotterdam mentality of taking the bull by the horns and getting the job done fits Fakton well. We are results oriented, and just roll up our sleeves and get to work. We see this attitude a lot at WTC Rotterdam so it suits us well. On top of that, from our 22nd floor we literally see how the property market is developing. The attractive appearance, atmosphere and dynamism of WTC Rotterdam complete the picture.”
“We teamed up with WTC Rotterdam to set up an insurance floor. The WTC is a professional organization that wants to get things done. This attitude fits us perfectly. Right from the start our shared ‘let’s do this’ attitude got the insurance floor up and running. The floor, on the 20th floor, is now fully occupied and business is not only being done but is increasing between the companies. This is the reason that we are here. WTC Rotterdam makes things happen.”
“Its location in the center of the city and its iconic tower means that you can’t miss WTC Rotterdam. I used to come to this international spot before moving my company, Liberaxion, here in 2006. My company’s mission is to support personal entrepreneurship. We coach our clients in areas such as personal branding so it is really important for us to receive our clients in the right place that reflects our brand. The atmosphere here, on top of its international character and entrepreneurial spirit means that WTC Rotterdam is perfect for us. What is also very useful is that the WTC organizes and facilitates all sorts of network events that give you easy access to new, high quality international contacts.”
“What we like about WTC Rotterdam is that you have your own office but at the same time are always among other entrepreneurs and businesses. The atmosphere and structure of the WTC Rotterdam is very open and welcoming so you make contacts very easily. Businesses also regularly refer others to each other and you have the opportunity to tap into each other’s expertise. Apart from the service-oriented workspace with its pleasant atmosphere, good accessibility and fast internet connection, doing business at WTC Rotterdam also ensures that your company’s name recognition increases, both among other businesses and among potential clients.”
“The professional reception, good accessibility, flexible meeting rooms and friendly people make WTC Rotterdam a great place for MAX HRM to set up business. We can respond quickly here and concentrate on expanding our business. We collaborate with various entities, including the government, and can facilitate Chinese companies to establish themselves in the Netherlands. We then help them grow. WTC Rotterdam is the perfect place to achieve our goals. We can breathe here and we can grow together. WTC Rotterdam is more than just an office block.”
“My welcome here at WTC Rotterdam – which included flowers and a cake – was so warm that I knew straightaway that I was in the right place. And when you start working here, you discover that it is indeed a great place. WTC Rotterdam offers easy access to your peers and you quickly develop professional sounding boards. The open spaces, open atmosphere and the shared coffee areas help this a lot. Our floor manager, Jeroen Redder, who knows everybody and is a great connector, plays an important role in this. For me, WTC Rotterdam is a stimulating and informal place with opportunities for growth for those entrepreneurs who aspire to this.”
“A few years ago I came up with the idea to digitize receipts. It literally started with an idea and because I do not have a technical background, I had to do a lot of research first. I felt that I needed a place that would inspire me and I found it after a long search. I met the then Director of the Business Center, Frank Coomans, which was then called WTConnect. I came for an initial meeting and did not even have an email address and was not registered at the Chamber of Commerce. In fact, I turned up for the meeting empty handed. Frank offered me the chance of starting here and that’s when the ball started rolling – to such an extent that a few years later Frank became an investor.”
“WTC Rotterdam feels like coming home. I worked here before for a different company and have now located my own company, AIPEX, in this historic building. AIPEX is a joint venture between patent and brand agencies in the most important countries in Europe. We wanted a reputable place for the company that also fits our market and positioning. WTC Rotterdam both meets these criteria and has a no nonsense mentality and international orientation. Another other aspect that makes WTC Rotterdam stand out, in my eyes, is that it is very centrally located. Its combination of shops, hospitality and other companies creates a pleasant leisure and professional atmosphere.”
“WTC Rotterdam’s international atmosphere was what initially attracted us to rent a co-working space in the Business Center. Our company has grown over the years and we started to need a private space to make phone calls and have meetings. At a certain point we needed to expand and to move to our own office space. We were pleased that WTC Rotterdam helped us think through the situation and we ultimately rented a Business Room. It was so easy as you do not have to move elsewhere if you move within the WTC Rotterdam. And we could also still benefit from the WTC network, the international orientation, the central location and the Business Services.”
