Yay! You want to live in Nest! Read on to figure out how it works and how you get in!
How the Process Works
We have 21 rooms at Nest Copenhagen and a rolling application process. This is because it’s a little hard to predict exactly when a room will become free. You know these entrepreneur types. Today they’re in Copenhagen, tomorrow they might be in Berlin and the day after that they’re probably in Antarctica.
For this reason, we keep an open “Prospect List.” To get on the list, fill out the application process below. We’ll review your application and contact you when a room opens up to see if the timing is still right. Typically, we know three months before when a room is going to become available, but there are also opportunities to sublet from residents.
The Interview and Evaluation Process
The interview process at Nest is two-fold. First, we look at your application and experience to see what kind of entrepreneur you are. We try to fill the house with a diverse array of profiles so there is no right or wrong (or left). The most important thing is that we can see your passion and gain a general understanding of who you are as a person. What do you like to do? What are your ambitions? What are you hoping to get out of living in Nest? We want you to shine through your application so that you move on to the next round of the process!
The important thing to remember about Nest is that it is a home. So, getting in doesn’t just revolve around how good you look on paper, it’s also heavily based on your personality and how you jive with the people, especially the residents who are going to be your roommates. Therefore, once we’ve evaluated the current pool of applicants, we figure out a shortlist of candidates that are invited to an intimate “interview” with the residents. We use quotations because it’s not a suit and tie answer a ton of serious questions kind of interview, but a chance for you to meet the Nesters and them to meet you. Typically, these interviews are fun meet and greets that revolve around brunch, coffee, or dinner.
So what’s the secret?
If Nest is just what you’ve been looking for, then throw us one hell of an application and show us who you are! We like people who stand out from the crowd, so write something out of the ordinary, make a cartoon or maybe even video.
