CoworkingDay 2013

Page history last edited by rachel 5 years, 11 months ago

On August 9 we celebrate International Coworking Day, a day to celebrate coworking and share our stories.  Although taking place in many different ways throughout our history, we generally consider August 9th to be coworking’s birthday.

 

It was on that day in 2005 that Brad Neuberg opened the first collaborative workspace, called Spiral Muse. He called it “coworking” and encouraged others to share the idea, remix it, and start other spaces. He was quickly joined by other early coworking leaders like Tara Hunt and Chris Messina, who were original founders of the Hat Factory (along with Brad Neuberg and a few others), and then Citizen Space, which is a thriving coworking space to this very day.

 

Planned for 2014:

 

BetaCowork in Brussels has a week of activities planned including

 

  1. Guest of members and former members can cowork for free the full week. 
  2. Highlight open doors to encourage people to cowork at least for a day.
  3. Breakfast to kickstart the week. 
  4. Event to introduce yourself and get help. 
  5. Mega lunch & sangria a gogo.
