This year is the 11th anniversary for coworking and we at co+Lab want to celebrate International Coworking Day on August 8th 2016 in a BIG way.
The emergence of a ‘Coworking space’ provided a great networking platform that balanced independence of self-employment with involvement in a community of working with others. This appeals to entrepreneurs and freelancers, leading to a widespread adoption.
When you become a member of co+Lab you have the opportunity to join a global fellowship of Digital Nomads by accessing a large network of coworking spaces under the Coworking Visa program. You are free to travel the world, enjoy your life and still grow a successful business on your own terms.
It’s with great gusto that co+Lab welcomes Justin Goodhew to the team, taking on the role of Community Activator. He’s a relative newcomer to Kelowna who is passionate about supporting creative entrepreneurs and championing big ideas.
If you’ve ever been trapped into the oppressive cubicle-farm or have to scramble to get the best seat in a noisy coffee shop, this is old news. For those who are hardlined about their fantasy of the office of solitude, here are some excellent reasons to consider trying coworking, before signing that 10-year lease.
It’s amazing how small changes to a space can make a HUGE difference. We recently equipped the co+Engine event space with new tables and chairs, making it suitable for meetings with up to 15 participants.
co+Lab has launched a community spotlight series called “Inspired and Innovative”, or I&I, that highlights the amazing work of our local professionals, entrepreneurs and game-changers. For round three we caught up with mayoral candidate and change maker Colin Basran!
