Sports Startups Increasingly Turning to Coworking Offices As Headquarters
No longer is the idea of coworking a new concept for us to wrap our heads around. It’s likely everyone and their mother know at least one person who’s turned away from the loneliness of the home office, in favour of increasingly popular coworking workplaces, popping up in urban centers all over the world.
Take Moxie Sports, for example, a tech startup based in the Atlanta Tech Village offices favoured by so many local entrepreneurs and small businesses. Once upon a time, guys like Moxie Sports’ founders Roman Grimaldi and Jerry Slutzky might have kicked off their business from the basement or garage of their parents’ home.
But today, it’s all about sharing that energy and dynamism with other like-minded folks. As Slutzky points out, being able to get up and take a break and play ping pong with a fellow entrepreneur who’s also building up the business of his dreams, is what it’s all about.
Fannect, a sports app which determines the value of a teams’ fans, and which allows you to rank yourself in comparison to your own favourite team’s fellow fans, also launched via a shared office environment. Having laid their startup’s foundations at Think Big offices in Kansas City, they’re are another notable startup which swears by the advantages of working from a coworking office.
Malta, a hugely influential player in the online gambling industry and home to many of the web’s biggest sports betting sites, is known as a budding star in the European startup scene. So it’s no surprise that the concept of coworking spaces has hit it big amongst Malta’s startups and entrepreneurs, as it’s all in tandem with this upward trend.
