Coworkite: a co-working space for beach bums


Co-working space, Coworkite has launched in Blouberg, Cape Town. Situated along one of the most popular kitesurfing beaches, their name, location and marketing emphasises the sport’s lifestyle.

Entrepreneurs can enjoy a workspace on two floors as well as fibre internet, being available for every member. Space at Coworkite also comes with free parking, meeting rooms, and access to expert mentors and investors.

The working space offers flexible packages ranging from R850 per month for five days of access, with discounts given to teams, long-term members and early stage startups.

The working space also offers entrepreneurs a space for a daily fee of R180 to see if it fits their needs and creative processes. Thereafter if they like the space, they can opt for the full-time (R2400 a month) package which comes with unlimited access to the space. Or, entrepreneurs can go for the Professional Package (R2900 per month) which offers a dedicated desk on the top floor as well as unlimited access, personal lockers and the ability to book meeting rooms.

Coworkite is also giving away one free full-time membership, available by applying on their website.

“There are a lot of creative and talented entrepreneurs in this area of Cape Town who want to work among a like-minded community without spending two to three hours in traffic every day,” said CEO and co-founder of Coworkite, Adrian Stander in a press release to Ventureburn.

Stander also mentioned that the office space is open to tech companies in the post-revenue stage looking for funding.

Coworkite will also be participating in future funding rounds hosted by Croatian seed-stage investment firm, 800 Ventures.

800 Ventures will invest in tech startups in seed stage up to R1.5-million and together with investors in our network we will participate in future funding rounds,” said CEO of 800 Ventures, Matija Rukavina.

“We wanted to create a small community driven coworking office where members can get to know each other, and where we can work closely with founders and help them in growing their business,” Rukavina continued.

According to Rukavina, many of the investors which form part of 800 Ventures network are serial entrepreneurs who have built many companies already.

“We’ve done it ourselves and we want to help others to grow their businesses too,” concluded Rukavina.
