What is it?

Over two days, EXPLORE the key elements to make your coworking business a success and to impact your community positively and sustainably.

  • Small group, energetic and inspiring workshops developed by leaders within the coworking movement

  • Join others who are on the same journey as you and make valuable connections that will reduce isolation and boost morale

  • Gain access to years of expertise, custom-made tools and tried-and-tested techniques

  • Learn what it takes to create and grow a successful coworking business, and how you can make it happen!

The team behind the Coworking Accelerator has been pioneering collaborative, people-centred coworking for nearly 15 years, and are experienced in incubating new businesses. We have distilled our experience to help grow the leaders of the coworking movement so that together we can build resilient enterprising communities around the world.

Who is it for?

EXPLORE Coworking Workshops are designed for leaders and decision makers who are starting or growing collaborative, community-focused coworking spaces and who want a faster, safer route to coworking success.

If you share our Coworking Commitments and Core Values, this event is for you.


People unleash their potential and become resilient when they develop a true sense of belonging.



People and businesses grow and endure when talent, relationships and opportunities are nurtured.



Communities thrive when people, spaces and places create a joined-up ecosystem.

What will participants get out of it?

You will learn from experienced, successful coworking space operators and receive key insights to help shape your coworking business model using the Coworking Canvas. Through focused inputs and in-depth discussions, energetic group learning and inspirational peer support, you will create a workable plan to develop your space and figure out what will make it great, or even greater!

You will develop:

  • An increased understanding of the business you're entering

  • A honed focus and direction for your coworking project

  • A grasp on the process of building a coworking community

  • Skills and knowledge for faster and more efficient business growth

  • Better quality service delivery

  • Higher customer attraction and retention rates

  • A network of like-minded peers

Investing in your capacity building now will pay dividends. You will save time, money and hassle by capitalising on dozens of years of combined coworking leadership and delivery experience from our team. Not to mention of avoiding the headache of learning ‘absolutely everything’ from scratch!

We are proud to say that 100% of participants from past events would
whole-heartedly recommend
