The story of Coworkies started back at the end of 2015. Pauline was managing a big coworking space in Berlin, where Dimitar worked for a startup accelerator. Through conversations and experiences we started noticing the needs of coworkers and started tinkering about Coworkies.
Since 2015, we've embarked on a global journey to deeply understand coworking by personally visiting and engaging with the people who drive it. This has allowed us to directly grasp their views, understand their needs, and gather insightful feedback. Today we have visited 500+ spaces in 53 cities.
As we've traveled, we've chronicled our experiences by blogging and starting a coworking magazine, filled with in-depth articles and interviews about the diverse spaces and cities we've seen. Encouraged by coworking space founders, we've now taken on the challenge of publishing a book, sharing these global coworking stories with the world.
AW250CS was successfully published due to a community crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Now, people from all corners of the world can discover the founding stories behind the people who make coworking happen daily, from New York to Tokyo. Order your copy today to explore the diverse world of coworking and its global impact.
