Our story

"A city house where entrepreneurs live together for inspiration all day long". That was Lisa Renander’s idea when she got tired of the anti-social apartment life. Visiting Silicon Valley, she stayed at Blackbox, a startup house with 20 inspiring entrepreneurs that all triggered each other to think bigger.

Lisa Renander and Gustav Borgefalk brainstormed upon a concept that would fit Sweden and Lisa decided to execute. Together with an American investor, Rob Meadows (founder of Originate) recently established in Stockholm, she realized the concept. They found a 5-story building in the Old Town and moved in December 2011.

Since the opening more than 50 entrepreneurs from five different continents and hundreds of guests have lived in the house. Each week we receive requests from people from all over the world asking to come and live in the house.
