In 2005 an independent worker in California conceived of a different way of working; he envisioned a place where independent workers could come together, collaborate and reap the rewards of community, increased productivity and creativity. That worker was Brad Neuberg and the word he used to describe his vision was coworking, and he was a founder of Coworking (a one day a week reserved space in another community center in 2005) and a co-founder of The Hat Factory.
On August 9th, approximately 500 coworking spaces around the world will celebrate Neuberg’s vision as part of International Coworking Day.
Join us, and celebrate 9 years of collaboration, and the shared economy!
