About VABN The office experiment in Frankfurt

In Frankfurt am Main, we are creating the ideal work space for young tech companies: VABN.

After the property’s remodeling, selected startups will test this new, maximally collaborative, flexible and creative office – while paying zero rental fee for nine months (service fee included)!


Room An office dream becomes reality

Located at Rödelheimer Strasse 45, some 570 m² of office space is completely up for a complete transformation.

The result is a co-office which meets the needs of young founders: designed by upcoming interior architects, selected by a competent jury, and realized in cooperation with experienced partners.


Startups Start up rent-free, with all extras!

VABN offers room for up to eight teams who want to take off: secure for your startup nine months of free work space with our rent-free “flatrate” offer, and access consultation services and tools to found, code and grow – in Frankfurt’s new dream office! Are you a young or aspiring startup with an innovative idea for the world of finance or insurance? Apply in August 2016, and move in in January 2017!


News Stay up-to-date!

We have been creating our VABN project since spring 2016. As a national real estate company we want to gain a better understanding of the future of work. Which is why we are redesigning and rebuilding a complete office, and experimenting with young tech companies in real life how their office can best support their endeavor. We will regularly share updates, progress, and knowledge in our news section.

About Aurelis

Aurelis is a nation-wide operating real estate company with two business areas: In our asset management area, we manage and optimize our real estate portfolio, and let open space and properties to commercial tenants. In our development area, we turn undeveloped or unutilized sites into building land, with the aim of selling parcels of land that are ready for construction with planning rights. Once demand is secured, we complete the value creation process and realize our own building construction projects. Our special strength lies in identifying opportunities inherent to a property. Expert teams represent our business areas in all regions as well as in our headquarters. They are familiar with our projects and the respective real estate markets and work together on a cross-discipline basis.
