The All New Coworkies! And How To Connect With Your Fellow Freelance Heroes

The All New Coworkies! And How To Connect With Your Fellow Freelance Heroes

We are speaking with Pauline and Demetrius of Coworkies Platform. They’re connecting people in coworking spaces

with networking. They have visited 210 coworking spaces in 23 cities.

Pauline and Demetrius explain the platform overview of Coworkies and how it works and best of all it’s free for

people to use. They share information about coworking spaces with pictures and the availability of the spaces.

They explain how the platform shows which type of professionals and events connected to your profession are at the

coworking spaces that you may want to choose. They are trying to get people aware of all the tools that they are

using to provide them suitable spaces.

Click on the links in the notes below:

It is almost a year since Coworkies wandered into @WorkHubs here in London and they have been busy tweaking and evolving their platform since then. 

What we are especially excited about right now is our discovery that when you add your event on Facebook it also shows up on Coworkies – without you doing anything!

So you can add your European Freelancers Week Event On Facebook and it will show up on the Coworkies Site.

We talk about many other ways Coworkies can help freelancers who work in coworking spaces connect in the show.

Things you should be doing this week!
