“It was 2018 when we started looking for a home for Dierks+Company, our advisory firm for Health Care and Life Sciences. We wanted to be in Mitte, close to Charité, close to all stakeholders in Health Care. We were looking for something that was modern, had a feel-good atmosphere, had many communal spaces yet allowed for retreating into your own office. I looked at 30, 40 objects, some were run-down, others 45 minutes outside the city center or had no elevators.

When we were offered the Helix Hub, a whole building with 8 stories and 3500 square meters it became clear, that we’d have to rent out – actually create a whole community around Health Care Innovation. We knew that if we said yes, we’d have two babies: Dierks+Company and Helix Hub. We did not know then how well they would tie into each other – but of course it was a lot of work!”
