Experience of Ecoteers at the Social Impact Factory Utrecht
Since 1 July 2020, Ecoteers rents workplaces at the Social Impact Factory Utrecht. The workplaces of the Social Impact Factory Utrecht are clean and light and the meeting rooms look welcoming and neat. So it’s easy to receive clients and go into a meeting undisturbed. In addition, the location in the heart of Utrecht next to the central station is very practical, both for us and for our clients. Despite the corona crisis and the resulting reduced activity within the SIF, we have already been able to network well. For example, we started a partnership with kromkommer, a company that makes crooked vegetables trendy again by offering education and teaching materials. The ultimate goal is to reduce food waste.
