We are exited to announce the launch of the Node International Entrepreneurship Center (Build A9, 798 Road, 751 D-Park, Chaoyang District, Beijing), which sits at Beijing’s new art and creative district 751 D-Park. The Node, a five-floor building covering more than 3,000 square meters, is our new home, as well as a co-working space and an activity venue for startup community.
Built under the concept of Office As a Service, the Node is the joint efforts of TechNode and our partners of the Node management team and APEC Young Entrepreneurs’ Summit.
Dr. Gang Lu, founder of TechNode, is a true believer of the idea that life is the best incubator for startups, because only those who really lived their lives can spot the demands of everyday life. Entrepreneurship should be a joyful experience and a positive life attitude, rather than a backbreaking journey.
That’s why we engaged all of our endeavors and resources to set up the Node and located it in 751, a place far from the fanfares of urban life, moreover, we hope the artistic atmosphere of 751 can spark innovative ideas and bring forth cross-boundary cooperation.
If you are launching a startup by yourself or with your team, you can rent a working space here (1,000 yuan/person/month). If you have a team with >4 staff, we have quite a few separate office room in upper floors for rent too. What’s more important, the Node will offer valuable entrepreneurial resources. You can either brainstorm with other teams on the big lawn in front of the Node, or chat with experts and venture capitalists while enjoying a cup of warm coffee.
We name the place the Node, 极地 in Chinese because the word 极 represents the very spirit of Geek, like co-founder of Paypal Max Levchin said, Once a Geek, Forever a Geek. Additionally, Node also stands for the magnetic force that attracting people with dreams, pursuit for extreme and perfection, as well as internationalization.
