Coworking Project by Cowo is a project willing to increase and expand Coworking through a program identified by a shared vision and logo. It’s not a franchising, there is no revenue sharing program, just a yearly fee.
Started in 2009, Cowo is now a network of +50 coworking spaces in Italy and Spain (Barcelona).
The project is designed for whoever has a professional space, and intends to share it in a collaborative and sustainable way, making a small profit.
The program lasts 12 months and offers two options:
- Basic (250 euro + vat)
- Premium (500 euro + vat)
