Nikola Weiser and Herwig Zöttl founded Raum13 because they were unhappy with their home office and small office. They were getting cabin fever, craving a creative space for exchange. So they created Raum13, a workplace that actually met their workstyle and needs. The fact that this would allow them to offer a creative work environment to other freelancers made the concept even more appealing. It’s clearly more fun to work in a community than sitting at home alone in your little office. Coworking is motivating, creative and lets you learn from others. Whether you need specialized expertise, help with your pricing or feel stuck with one of your projects – Raum13 has enough people providing the right answers, advice and fresh ideas.
The starting point for Raum13 was the Choch3 Creative Community Coaching by KAT (Kreativwirtschaft Austria), CAST-Gründerservice Tirol (now SAT Standortagentur Tirol – startup.tirol), the Austrian Economic Chamber, and the Tyrolean Economic Chamber. This is where Nikola and Herwig met and made Herwig’s vision come true.
Meanwhile, Nikola and her partner ventured on a new path to Germany, where they took over the Sonnentor resort. Herwig’s wife Katharina has joined Raum13 to run the administration.
