In our last community meeting we had a talk about the new trends and challenges discussed during the 2015 Coworking Europe Conference, held in Milano, Italy, from 11th to 13th of November.
I was there as BCNewt’s founder and CEO, catching every opportunity for us! The main topics were:
Collaboration: how can cooperate a coworking in Barcelona with big corporations? A few case studies were mention in Milano, like Italian Tiscali telco, and its coworking project Open Campus. As Barcelona is home of many innovative great companies, particularly in 22@ District, where BCNewt is based. This is a work in progress for our community!
Co-living: imagine yourself living in a building with dozens of entrepreneurs, sharing more than a workspace in Barcelona, your room, kitchen, washer machine and more. This is a new trend in big cities with expensive flats and offices rents, like New York or London, and probably, some day, also Barcelona. We just figured out how this lifestyle could change our lives, in a positive or negative way, and how we could take advantage of this.
Organization: the new European organizations of freelancers and coworking spaces are struggling to face the new era of the on demand economy. As from the the beginning of time, has its benefits, but also, the dark side. Regulatory proposals, to make freelancers‘ life easier, and promote unused spaces to create new coworking spaces, are some ideas flowing in the air.
