Meet the Members:
We are all human beings. We work together in an elegant way, with a certain joie de vivre. Fosbury & Sons – what’s in a name – is the work of more than one individual. The synergy is within us: some of our Members are also our business partners and vice versa. Now is the time to put a spotlight on our Members! We talk to Alinda Wit from Lovevery. A beloved member of Fosbury & Sons Prinsengracht.

Alinda Wit is General Manager, Europe at Lovevery. When she discovered Lovevery, she was so impressed by the products and the proposition, that she decided to quit her job as CFO of Danone's Growth and Innovation division and introduce the concept to the European market.
Lovevery is a US start-up that creates toys and playthings based entirely on extensive scientific research into the various developmental stages of young children. They currently have three employees, with additions to the team joining in December as they'll expand the European organization. The company launched in the US in 2017, and since early November the first two products - the Play Gym and the Block Set - are available in Europe. They have been members at Fosbury & Sons since May.
Why Fosbury & Sons?
"We needed a flexible option that would allow for our future growth. We also wanted to be in the midst of other start-ups so we could foster connections and share ideas. When we visited other co-working locations, we didn't get that special inviting vibe we get here."
What do you like most about Fosbury & Sons?
"The Prinsengracht location is not only very central, but it is also a very pleasant workspace - many large windows which bring in great light, multiple seating arrangements, and all the conveniences we needed as a small business. Also, who doesn't want to have a view of the Amsterdam canals and the most beautiful art while they are working?"
What is your favorite working spot at Prinsengracht?
"You can typically find us on the second floor on the Prinsengracht side. Large spacious tables allow us to social distance while we still work together. We are looking forward to being able to work from the internal courtyard again in warmer months!"
