Everyone you meet will know something you don’t. Sharing valuable knowledge in the work space, reflects your loyalty towards your clients.
Being surrounded by like-minded people in a creative space is a recipe for success. Co-working spaces have become more and more common around the world, offering a wide variety of services to ensure maximum productivity.
Let’s look at this trendy New York-based space called The Wing. It is the brainchild of political and media relations strategist Audrey Gelman and former director of ClassPass, Lauren Kassan. It is a space for women to grow their businesses, to collaborate and to reach their full potential in an environment where creativity can be exchanged.
The Netherlands’ Hashtag Workmode owns two spots; in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. These are beautiful co-working environments that aim to accelerate female entrepreneurs’ careers. Offering a hub to embrace like-minded visions, the co-working locale is ideal for sharing ideas, gaining industry-related connections and tapping into relevant resources.
In Cape Town you’ll find countless inspiring shared work spaces. The ICIC (Inner City Ideas Cartel), Work & Co, Spin Street House and Workshop17. These are situated in gorgeous spaces in the heart of Cape Town.
More and more co-working hubs are popping up and we have to ask ourselves: What does this mean for the future of companies, the standard office scene and working collabs?
