Playing Hard At WORQ


I have been working with the team at WORQ for the past one month, and I have been really fortunate enough to have experienced a developing culture that is steep in the interest of the community, members and their growth. The startup team is deeply invested in the business and the wellbeing of the members, and every one of us, as lean as the team currently is, are working together to make that happen. That is a beautiful thing for sure. Having the founders participate in multiple community-led initiatives, and seeing them play games along with the community, is something exceptional for the members here at WORQ.

The team at WORQ listens really carefully to their members and their needs, even working closely with them to develop technology products and processes for the future of the community. No doubt, this should be a practice for any co-working space.

A co-working space like WORQ should be a place for communities and like-minded people to build great things together. A co-working space should become what it honestly is for the community it serves, and not just be that space for people to work in.

I genuinely believe in the founder's vision of improving the productivity of entrepreneurs, freelancers and businesses, thus having an impact on the economy. Like many startups, it will take time to build culture. WORQ is clearly on this path of building a great one.
