Coworking is a new way to work. It is also a very old way to work. History shows us again and again that when human beings with diverse talents collect and practice those talents in a place that serves as a melting pot of ideas, amazing things happen. There is a greatly increased chance that the intersection of those ideas, expertise, and resources will create delight, fulfillment, and the sort of creative energy that produces a quality of innovation that you can never accomplish alone or as a cog within an organized entity.
That is the old (yet relevant!) part of coworking. But there is so much that is new about coworking. The 21st Century's economy is shaped by two great movements: technology and globalization. Around the world, these movements are changing the workplace in dramatic and surprising ways. In exponentially growing numbers, workers are being released from the geographical confines of the traditional workplace. Today, we have greater ability to create the means for this co-mingling of ideas than ever before, and to achieve things by working together in new, intelligent ways. We seek to harness the latent power of the innovation-driving, economy-driving forces by establishing a place, a beacon, where people can interact, in person, and virtually, in the spirit of bringing together what we know in order to achieve something greater.
