What is Kowrk?
Kowrk (pronounced as co work) is a platform that enables The Future of Work™ by connecting users with coworking spaces, business centers and other providers of shared offices.
Finding the right coworking space or shared office is a long, arduous process that involves searching the web to discover potential spaces, visiting several locations and negotiating terms with shortlisted providers. Evaluating the fit of a space with one’s working requirements and style is more difficult and requires making predictions based on hearsay or what is observed during the visit.
Kowrk simplifies this process and makes finding a coworking space or shared office as simple as finding a hotel room. Our Founder, who has managed the Asia-Pacific offline business for the world’s largest hotel booking platform, Hotels.com, has embedded the best practices from this industry into our platform. Our deep insights into the nuances of connecting users and providers of perishable real-estate inventory have enabled us to grow rapidly across Asia’s largest coworking markets.
Why use Kowrk?
Kowrk helps you find, compare, book and review coworking spaces and shared offices. All the spaces listed on our platform have been vetted through personal visits. Hence you see not only professional snaps, but also photos taken by users of the spaces. Users can leave feedback about the coworking spaces. This ensures that what you see and read on Kowrk is what you can pretty much expect at the space. Thus we have eliminated the need for you to visit a space before booking. Just like how you would book a hotel.
Here is a quick video to explain how and why to use Kowrk.
