Coworking rocks for several reasons, but right now, I want to talk about one in particular: collaboration.
Since Office Nomads opened in November 2007, we have been incredibly fortunate to collaborate with and converse with several other owners of coworking spaces who have been and continue to be more than willing to share their knowledge, ideas, suggestions, insights and experiences along the way. There is no way that Office Nomads could be what it is today without their incredible help.
It is because of this that Office Nomads is totally geared up for the possibility of a coworking passport system between various coworking spaces throughout the country and the world. The idea is simple: If you are a member of one coworking space and are traveling to another city, you can hook up with a coworking space there that is open to guests from other spaces in the network. In other words, it will be a network of coworking spaces that are interested in opening our doors to each other’s members. It’s the kind of unique colloboaration that happens in coworking spaces everyday. Pretty neat.
So how is Office Nomads going to participate? Simply, as usual. For all of you who members of other coworking spaces out there, know that our doors are open to you to be drop-in members whenever you’re in Seattle and need a spot to work.
To kick off the adventure for Office Nomads, we’re getting geared up to host a big team of coworkers from Suite133 in our space this coming Friday. It’s bound to be a fantastic day and we couldn’t be more excited to have folks from our sister space from Tacoma come up and hang out. If you’re in Seattle on Friday and want to meet some of the cool folks who work at Suite133, come on over to Office Nomads and join in the fun!
