The newly formed Coworking Alliance of Asia Pacific (CAAP) has partnered with Mingle, a startup ecosystem which runs the oldest coworking space in Mumbai called Bombay Connect to host the first Coworking Unconference India! Set for Sept. 28 – Oct. 1 in Goa, attendees can expect all the prime movers and shakers from the world of coworking and innovation spaces in India.
Kicking off with the theme ‘Startup Nation’, CU India is looking to boost support for the emerging startup scene in India, and the roles that the coworking movement has in supporting the growing ranks of freelancers, creatives, and entrepreneurs that are driving India’s growth into the new economy. With over 500 coworking spaces in India, it is among dozens of other countries experiencing incredible growth, as reported by Deskmag’s 2015 Coworking Survey.
“The coworking movement and the tech industry are a natural fit. Coworking spaces provide the space, community and events that bring people together to facilitate collaboration and accelerated growth, acting as an anchor for the ecosystem. Bringing the conference to India reflects the emergence of the India tech scene and the ways we can support it with strong spaces and dynamic communities,” explains Steve Munroe, Founder of CAAP and Hubud, Bali’s first coworking space.
Programming includes Coworking Academy, best described as a one day boot camp for new operators, or those looking to open a space as well as an excursion day to explore some of the world famous beaches Goa is known for.
