Coworking is known to have numerous benefits, from alleviating isolation for remote workers, to creating job opportunities and placing value on human connection. Users often state that they feel healthier and happier when working from a Coworking space, as they have more professional and personal autonomy, in addition to their work and overall relationships becoming more meaningful.

But (and it is a big but) even the coolest Coworking Space can be the wrong place for yourself. This is why it's so important to find the right one for you. Our invited speakers will introduce you to the difference between a good, a bad and an ugly coworking space, so that you can get a better feeling what you should care about when you choose a coworking space for your freelancing activities.

Speakers list:
– Benno Dopjans | Freelancer & Coworker
– Katy Zühlke | Head of Coworking & Community, Betahaus Berlin
– Tobias Schwarz | Coworking Manager, St. Oberholz
– Philipp Hentschel | Founder, Welance

After the four talks there will be a fishbowl discussion moderated by our friends from Coliga. They will also do some video interviews with freelancers who want to talk about what drives them.


This event is part of the European Freelancers Week 2016 which is a series of events and actions created by and for independent workers, held in different locations across Europe from October 17 to 23, 2016.

The St. Oberholz Friday Afternoon Coffee event will take place in the new St. Oberholz Coffee Lab in Zehdenicker Strasse 1, just five minutes away from Rosenthaler Platz.
