Humanyze Opens European Headquarters in Amsterdam
MIT Media Lab spin-off company has opened its European headquarters in Amsterdam
Humanyze has officially opened its European headquarters in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. With its new European headquarters, Humanyze will be able to better serve its existing customers and reach European markets. In addition, Humanyze’s Amsterdam-based team will also focus on customer success, technical implementation, and sales and alliances.
Developed out of the MIT media lab, Humanyze works to improve organizational analytics and workspace design. As a result, the company has developed the Humanyze Elements platform. The platform helps operations managers, workspace specialists, and HR professionals make planning decisions, measure the impact of initiatives and more.
“Having our European headquarters in the Netherlands has been a fantastic choice. We are able to serve our European customers faster and more effectively, due to Amsterdam’s strong, multi-lingual talent pool, its fast and efficient transport options to all of Europe, and its professional groups and thought leaders in smart buildings, people analytics, and Property Tech (PropTech) who have already invited us to join the conversation.” explained Alexa Lightner, Vice President and General Manager for EMEA of Humanyze.
Lightner also added, “Moving here is a huge milestone and sets us up for rapid growth and expansion in the region.”
“Our expansion to Europe happened naturally and out of a need to support our current and future customers there. Large enterprises in Europe are being tasked with huge challenges with their people and workspace needs, and they have sought us out as a solution to enable their long-term agility and competitiveness,” said Ben Waber, CEO and co-founder of Humanyze.
The Netherlands is a Hub for European Headquarters
From its business-friendly climate to its multilingual workforce and logistics network, the Netherlands is the ideal location for European headquarters. Humanyze joins several U.S.-based companies to have recently set up European headquarters in Amsterdam, including Brain Corp, Symbiont, Rakuten Medical.
Additionally, the Netherlands connectivity and access to European markets make it an ideal choice for headquarter operations. In fact, companies can reach 170 million customers within 24 hours of Amsterdam or Rotterdam. The Netherlands is also a perfect springboard into the European market due to its connectivity and world-class infrastructure.
