We’re SwitchCube. A Coworking Community. We’re commuting refugees and home office workers. We’re freelancers and startups. We’re Solopreneurs and telecommuters. And we believe there is a better way to work.
Better than trudging through a 9 to 5 in a traditional corporate cubical. Better than trying to concentrate on meeting deadlines in a not so quiet coffee shop. And better than being cut off from the world in an isolated home office.
We’re talking about coworking.
Coworking is a movement that is sweeping the planet. There are over 2,400 coworking spaces around the world today, and these innovative spaces have become a haven for thousands of creative independents, social media consultants, tech folk, and various other types of business professionals. But coworking offers more than just shared offices and good coffee. These collaborative communities offer something special… something you can’t find in a cube. Connectedness.
How does coworking benefit you? Glad you asked.
People at SwitchCube cowork for different reasons. Some of us are contractors, freelancers, or telecommuters. Others among us are entrepreneurs or small business owners. Sometimes we work in a group, often on our own, but always do so as part of a community. Most of us got started in the home office or at our kitchen table. The experience might have been great, but only to a point. We need something different, something better … a space that’s more social than home, more productive than a coffee shop, and more human than an office cubical. That’s what coworking is, and that’s what SwitchCube is all about.
Coworking in Abbotsford, BC.
SwitchCube is the first coworking space in the British Columbia’s Fraser Valley, located near the heart of old downtown Abbotsford. Lots of us here have done the commute to Vancouver for years. But there are also a surprising number of us who are global knowledge workers, selling our services to companies and people all over the globe from the comfort of our city in the country.
SwitchCube is about offering people a choice: working together, building relationships, and occasionally collaborating on projects, versus remaining in isolation within the walls of our own homes. But we’re not just talking to full-timers who live within walking or biking distance. Commuters could also benefit from turning off the car and switching on to coworking, even if just for a few days a week.
What’s so great about coworking?
Coworking isn’t just a cute idea. It’s a surging global movement that’s changing lives and the way people think about work. Did we mention it also puts more money into your pocket? Oh, and it’s probably healthier too. Seriously. Not sold yet? Here are some of the top benefits of coworking …
Coworking is all about people.
