AFRICA’S BIGGEST HUB FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Built on the premises of the historic Ecole Belge, located right in downtown Kigali, Norrsken is 12000 square meters of inspiration, shared resources and home to a community of impact entrepreneurs who work from East Africa’s largest hub for entrepreneurship.

Whether you're just starting up, focused on growth, or looking to join a purpose-filled community of founders, investors, talent and enablers, Norrsken House Kigali is equal parts home, knowledge center and connector.

If you're excited about building a shared future come join us! We've poured our hearts into making this a space that you'll want to come back to every morning because the place where you spend most of your time needs to be functional, adaptable and, not least, beautiful.

Become part of the solution

More than a space

Norrsken House is more than an office. It’s filled with life, collaborative areas, work areas, inspiring desk-neighbors, potential, and light. Our state of the art meeting and conference rooms adapt to your needs, and yes, all roads lead to a coffee machine.

SKYPE BOOTHS & QUIET AREA

It's not always easy to find a quiet place in Kigali, and one of the toughest things about a traditional open office is not being able to get away to make an important call or skype meeting. We've solved this by embedding small skype rooms and phone booths throughout, specifically made for when you need to make an important call or attend a conference long distance.

event space

We take events to the next level. The Kigali Norrsken House has everything you need to create a fantastic event - crowd seating, big screen projectors, microphones, stage lighting and really (really) good sound systems.

team areas

To work more efficiently, teams often times want to sit and work together. We go beyond simply sitting in the same office: reserve private spaces for the day or have an impromptu meeting in our cafe or common spaces.

OUTDOOR SEATING

Prefer sitting outside? We've got you covered! Settle down for some focus time in our outdoor pergola, or have a quick chat on any of our outdoor benches. No matter where you choose, you'll be surrounded by lush vegetation.

INSPIRING INTERIOR DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE

We hired the best and the brightest to build a space that goes far beyond just function. Working at Norrsken Kigali House will get you out of any work slump, providing you a creative space to be innovative.

NORRSKEN HOUSE KIGALI IS DESIGNED FOR ALL OF YOUR WORK NEEDS. WHETHER YOU’RE LOOKING FOR COLLABORATIVE OPEN ENVIRONMENTS OR PRIVATE SPACE TO FOCUS, WE GOT YOU COVERED.

We offer flex and dedicated desks, and private office spaces. But that's not all— Our membership includes everything you’ll need, including wifi, coffee, meeting and conference room credits, printing, and the ability to use Norrsken House as your registered address.
