On August 9, 2017 we celebrate International Coworking Day, a day to celebrate coworking’s birthday.
It was on that day in 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.
Not to be confused with business centers 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.
To celebrate we are opening up the doors for anyone to come down to Springboard for FREE for a full day (9am-5:00pm)
Meet some of our incredible members, learn about the startups and meet remote workers. Use the space to get some work done. You’ll truly get an understanding of what coworking is all about and the true power of collaboration.
For bonus points, if you stay long enough you’ll be able to join us at 5:00pm for our FREE appetizers and drinks!
Already have an office? Why not talk your boss into working out of Springboard for the day – you can tell them it will help with productivity, how can they say no to that?
Bring your friends, bring your colleagues, bring your neighbours because everyone is getting free coworking on the 9th of August!
