MOTIFE can help you build a team and find a suitable workspace for it anywhere in Poland. We have a strong specialization in Warsaw and Krakow – the two cities with the largest tech talent pools in Poland – and also support capability creation in cities like Wroclaw, Poznan, Katowice, Lodza, and the Gdansk-Sopot-Gdynia Tri-City metropolitan area.
Once you’ve decided on the city, we can help you pick the right operating model from the following options:
A class-A office space in a modern office building – a fresh, blank canvas that can be adapted to complement your vision and company culture.
When you have a long-term vision that you are ready to commit to and are keen to make your Poland hub an important part of your global capabilities.
A furnished or partially furnished class-A office space in a modern office building – to help you get started more quickly than with a conventional lease.
When you want to start quickly with a shorter-term ready-to-move-in option that provides your new team with a professional environment while leaving flexibility for the future.
A designated space in a serviced office, procured on flexible terms. Locations typically feature reservable meeting rooms, professional-grade wifi connectivity, and all essential modcons.
When you have a distributed or small team, are just getting started, or if your team works remotely, and you want to provide a professional space for occasional use or team meetings.

We can help you with everything from articulating your needs, through to moving into your office space.
We share with you insights on the characteristics of different Polish cities and the principles of the real-estate market in Poland. We work with you to articulate your current and future needs, share relevant examples, and capture your requirements and preferences in a briefing document that will inform our search.
Based on your brief, we connect with our local partners, and conduct research to find options that meet your criteria and are available, or soon will be. We present you a shortlist of options in the form of a report containing photos and up-to-date information about costs and availability.
After receiving initial feedback, we organize viewings of your preferred locations, which can take place physically or remotely.
Once you have selected your preferred option, MOTIFE can support you in negotiations to help you reach a satisfactory arrangement. We then liaise with stakeholders on your behalf to arrange the signing and formalization of the contract.
Once all formalities are concluded, the MOTIFE Operations team can help take care of logistical aspects associated with moving in. On request, MOTIFE can support basic fit out of the facilities and connecting you with trusted local vendors, such as utility providers, IT vendors, and more.
