Originally a railway station, the space has been converted into a big start-up hub. The site plans to house more than 3,000 desks, over 10 international start-up programmes and a variety of events spaces and private offices. In 2018, Station F also plans to open a new co-living space to accommodate 600 entrepreneurs.

‘Our goal with Station F is not only to create the largest start-up campus in the world, but also to create a space that houses an entire start-up eco-system under one roof,’ said Roxanne Varza, director of Station F, in a recent statement.

Facebook will be hosting its first start-up incubator, the Startup Garage, as part of the space. Working with 10–15 start-ups, Facebook wants to empower data-driven businesses to develop in new and innovative ways.
