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. From August 8th to August 12th we’re going to provide 1 day of free coworking from August 8th to 12th, leading up to the big day. There’s a limit of 1 free day per registrant and coworker registration must happen on our Eventbrite event page.
What is this Coworking thing all about?
Coworking might be an unfamiliar concept to many but it’s taking the world by storm with thousands of coworking spaces now operating across the globe.
Not to be confused with business centres and serviced offices, which are not shy in using the coworking buzzword, rather the true meaning of coworking is demonstrated by those who are passionate about Collaboration, Community, Openness, Entrepreneurship and Sustainability.
It was August 9th 2005 that Brad Neuberg opened the first collaborative workspace, called Spiral Muse, and dubbed it “coworking”. He was quickly joined by other early coworking leaders like Tara Hunt & Chris Messina, who were original founders of the Hat Factory (along with Brad Neuberg and a few others), and then Citizen Space, which is still a thriving coworking space to this very day.
Stay tuned for updates on this celebration.
