Today’s Killer Startup: Copass
Copass is “the first global federation of collaborative spaces.”
Why It’s A Killer Startup:
I. Love. Coworking space. Let me say that again: I love coworking spaces. I’m actually sitting in the extremely lovely Impact Hub in Antigua, Guatemala, as I write this. Aah, the difference in my quality of life since I eschewed working from home and from coffee shops. I love being able to bring my own lunch, having a great community of people to talk to (especially important when you’re a motormouth like me), and being able to go up and use the bathroom with packing away all of my stuff. (Seriously, it makes a difference.)
But finding a coworking space isn’t always easy when you’re moving to a new country every few months. That’s why I’m pumped to add Copass to my arsenal of digital nomad tools. Copass includes 412 coworking spaces around the world and is still growing. You can get a peek into any of those spaces via their clear, interactive map or even have one-to-one chats with space managers to get directions and that all essential local insider knowledge that would normally take you months to get on your own, before you get there.
When you join Copass, you get some major benefits at their participating partner spaces. Benefits include free days for new members, up to a 20% discount on fees and a one-click check-in option that charges you the discounted price. No need to deal with money or payment options; do it all directly from the site.
Copass even offers a list of copassers in your newly chosen workspace who are willing to host newcomers like you. Stay tuned for integration with AirBnB and Couchsurfing to further simplify the hosting experience.
Dear #digitalnomads: You really, really need this. @WeCopass
