FAQs

What is The Base by CyprusInno?

The Base by CyprusInno, the world's first Social Impact Generator™, combines the elements of a coworking space, accelerator/incubator, innovation center, meeting/office space, and multimedia studio. Located in Cyprus' UN Buffer Zone, it is the first space of its kind in the world located in a demilitarized zone. A Social Impact Generator™ is an ever-evolving, multi-purpose space that enables the co-creation of social and economic impact in various fields of focus by bringing together both the private and public sectors, as well as civil society, via a hybrid platform of digital and physical tools. The Base by CyprusInno was a peace-keeping forces military container transformed into an innovative, peaceful, comfortable, and inviting space for the entrepreneurial communities of Cyprus.

Specifically, what kind of common spaces do you have?

We have four themed rooms that make up The Base by CyprusInno. The first is our coworking space with various types of seating and a snack/drinks corner which also converts into an events space that can host panels, fireside chats, workshops, networking events, and more. The second is our sound-proof multimedia studio which is fully equipped with studio mics and a plug-and-play 4-channel mixer. The third is our ideation lounge furnished with bean bags and a soft floor for brainstorming, creative meetings, or just a quiet place to relax. The final room is the conference room which is u-style board room seating with whiteboards.
