For the last three years, Global Enterprise has been at the forefront to build up connections between the hundreds of coworking spaces which are popping up everywhere in Europe and beyond.
Global Enterprise is the initiator of the Coworking Europe Conferences, so far the biggest gathering of Coworking spaces owners, managers, catalysts and experts in the world (visit www.coworkingeurope.net).
Feasability studies, coaching, integration strategy
Global Enterprise advises public and private operators in their evaluation of the opportunity to integrate the coworking approach and experience in their strategy.
Global Enterprise produces feasability studies and contextual analysis. We build up business plans, positioning, communication and marketing strategies. Global Enterprise also provides employees and managers with trainings and coaching.
Global Enterprise already advised cities, not for profit associations, economical development agencies, business incubators and property owners in Belgium, France and Germany.
Global Enterprise also supports industry clusters and private companies in their investigation on how and why they could integrate the Coworking model and values in their operations, for social, collaboration, HR or innovation purposes.

Coworking spaces are like micro-Silicon Valleys
Coworking spaces create ecosystems, which are like micro-Silicon Valleys, where entrepreneurial and creative individuals can meet, share, collaborate an co-create new projects and businesses. Values such as innovation, openness sustainability, are dominant.
Coworking generate a new working attitude. It promote a positive mindset, where possibilities are highlighted. Initiatives are cherished. It stimulates entrepreneurship and networking with the community as well as with the rest of the world.
The coworking approach can be an engine of growth for modern economies.
Interactions between coworking communities provide a new fluidity in the trade relationships. It increases tremendously the number of new business opportunities for starting up projects.
The right physical platform for an open and innovative attitude
We think coworking will inspire the future ways of working in a major portion of the human organisations in the 21st century.
Coworking spaces create a different kind of working context, where human contacts, openness, access, readiness to share and collaborate with peers are core. Values focus on creativity and execution, rather than on the routine tasks.
