Shared Office: How Co-working Redefines the Way You Work


What is co-working?

By definition, “Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity.” (Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation. Web. 12 Feb. 2016. ) Co-working allows business professionals, freelancers, entrepreneurs and the like, to have a place to work outside of their home.

Today, more and more co-working spaces are emerging offering fast internet connection, unlimited coffee and a decent place to get work done. As a consumer, to have all the above mentioned criterias checked off the list makes the decision rather easy, no questions asked.. sold! But what if there’s more to a co-working space than what we already know? What if there’s a place that can offer more than a workspace?

Acceler8 is here to prove just that. Acceler8 is hybrid workspace that offers Virtual Office Plans, Private Offices, Meeting Room Plans and Event Space. In an aim to redefine the way people work, Acceler8 fosters a community where all members get a chance to interact and build meaningful connections through community events, workshops and more.

Community Relations Manager, Bianca Cruz tells us just how they do it, “Acceler8 is more than a workspace because we are a community. There’s good camaraderie amongst our members and we always make sure that what we do, we do for the betterment of our members and have our whole community’s success in mind. We curate events that will be beneficial for our members. We make sure to offer them courses they will learn from and will help them with their businesses that’s why we have seminars and workshops about sales, marketing, and taxation which our members can attend for free.”

Aside from these events, Co-founder Mikko Barranda says, “We also make it a point to bring valuable connections to our members. For example, we have a client that specializes in marketing events, and I have a contact that does events and activations. What happens is, Acceler8 acts as the bridge to bring them together. It’s all about collaboration.”
