Love Regefalk - Coworked
Blog post #1
Describe the idea!
The market for shared offices, also known as co-working spaces, have experienced an exponential growth in the past few years and more and more employers and small companies are beginning to question the role of a traditional offices and seek other alternatives.
Owing to this trend, I see that there’s a demand for a platform that connects co-working spaces with prospective customers. For tenants, Coworked.se allows them to search, find and compare different spaces to find a perfect match. For landlords, the idea is to increase their occupancy whilst gaining market shares in the stiffening competition.
Who are you?
I’m a fourth year Industrial Engineering and Management student at LTH who spent my last semester abroad on an exchange in Singapore. I have a keen interest in entrepreneurship and as such I’ve founded two companies beside my studies. They are Beerpongkungen and Mapsery, respectively. Hopefully, I can add Coworked.se to that list after this summer.
Fun fact: I’m a triplet. My brother, Daniel, is also a Leapfrogger this summer.
What will you do during these three months? How will you spend the time?
To better understand the co-working market in Sweden, I decided to rent a desk at a co-working space in Stockholm, which is where I will spend my summer. Before I settled for a space that fitted my criteria, I tried out seven different spaces. This, I believe, has given me a good understanding of the market and some valuable connections. Moving forward, I will work to achieve the goals listed in question 4 below.
What do you expect to achieve during Leapfrogs?
For these three months, these are the three goals that I hope to achieve:
- Launch an MVP based on the findings from interviews and surveys with co-working spaces and their customers (end of June)
- Launch Coworked 1.0 and win my first paying customer (end of July)
- Reach a minimum of 20 verified co-working spaces listed on Coworked.se, of which 25% are paying customers (end of August)
