BNP Paribas’ Innovation Zone at our US headquarters in New York was featured in a recent photo essay on Bloomberg.com entitled “A Look Inside Wall Street’s Innovation Labs”. The essay provides an inside look at in-house innovation spaces among some of the major banks and exchanges in the U.S.
Located on the 30th floor at 787 Seventh Avenue, the zone provides a central environment for staff, clients and partners to come together and develop cutting-edge ideas and solutions. The design of this 5,000 square-foot space is industrial inspired, consisting of a collaborative open plan layout with a large pantry, a social space offering flexible work areas and a dedicated incubation space called “The Lab.” The location includes lots of seating space, free drinks and vending machines full of snacks.
The Innovation Zone made its debut in September with the Bank’s first Blockchain Bizhackathon event in the Americas. To take a look back at that event, click here.
