Each and every day, more and more people are discovering co-working. The movement is not only a great alternative for independent workers, but it has been proven time and time again to be a sustainable and clearly identified solution for entrepreneurs and freelancers looking to build a network and collaborate with like-minded people. Even research has shown that the modern workforce prefers to work together in community office environments and this is why co-working spaces have been opening up everywhere.
Funky Co-working Friday is a Macedonian initiative that strives for the promotion and popularisation of co-working culture in Macedonia by organising a co-working event each Friday at a different location in Skopje. It has quickly become popular among freelancers as it has proven that joining their professional and social resources has brought benefits for all parties involved. The event starts every Friday at 12:00 and offers a relaxed and informal working environment.
What I like the best about it is that the initiative has played a great role in building the local start-up scene and supporting the independent work as entrepreneurial choice. So next time you are in Skopje on a Friday and need to work on your project, go to Public room or check their Facebook page and see where they are at.
