Coworker Hotspots

Turn your home into an unofficial coworking space

A Coworker Hotspot is an unofficial / non-traditional coworking space hosted by someone in their home. LOTS of people who work remotely actually work from home because they have a good setup, fast WiFi, easy access to their kitchen, etc.

But always working alone from home gets super lonely. And in local neighbourhoods, there are often thousands of people working alone from home within just a small radius of each other! So we're launching Coworker Hotspots as a new feature on Coworker.com to let people host their own unofficial coworking "hotspots" in their own living rooms / dining rooms / garages (Steve Jobs style!). Sign up to get invited as a beta tester!

Aha thanks for featuring us BetaList! For anyone reading this, hey I'm Leanne from Coworker.com :) We're a global platform to find, book and review 10,000+ coworking spaces in 165 countries, and we'll be expanding the marketplace to include unofficial coworking "hotspots". Let me know if you have any questions!
That is a super cool idea, as a remote worker it would be fun to hang with people. Do you pay them for your time there?
@automateIQ i know right?? I've been working remotely for about 8 years and wish this existed before. Yep similar to Airbnb, people will set their own prices. If people have baller places and have extras to offer like podcasting equipment, green screens / home studios, etc they are able to charge higher prices.
I like that you have a waitlist and are aware of people in other countries, although I hope I won't get dozens of emails before there is a place near me, there is a community centre local to me that I hope will host a space.

I think connecting with a service like Meetup would help to kickstart interest in a specific area. I think the alternative is localised ads on social networks, but that would take significantly more admin time for you.
@ianmayman haha don't worry, deffo no emails until Hotspots open in your city! That's why we're collecting people's cities / countries when they sign up for an invite, so we don't spam people continuously as we roll it out globally. Awesome idea about Meetup - we actually already sponsor all the StartupBlink MeetUp groups for their local meetups in 100+ cities around the world, hadn't thought about tapping into that. Just emailed them to make something happen - cheers for the tip!
