The building has meeting spaces, a restaurant, three bars and a 370-seat auditorium. In the incubator there are also essential services for the operation of start-ups: investment funds, a fab lab, 3D printers and public services.
The building is divided into three large spaces: the Create zone, for working, the Share zone, for chatting, and the Chill zone, for relaxing and eating. The Chill Zone opened in May 2018 with a restaurant run by the Big Mamma company and called La Felicità.
