Berlin-based startup Go-PopUp finds suitable vacant spaces and makes them easily available for booking. The company is a community marketplace, where brands and creative businesses can connect to landlords and commercial property owners to find temporary space where they can test, promote and develop their business ideas. They promote Pop-Up events and locations in Europe and thus the visibility of these short-term happenings is increasing. Pop-Up’s are shops, restaurants, bars, cafés, galleries and exhibitions which appear on a temporary basis and are placed in an unique environment. Since 2013, when Sven Straubinger, Dennis Boehres and Patrick Burkert founded Go-PopUp, brands and makers from all over the world can find flexible space. According to the founders, it’s not about finding any empty space, but the right one.
