Where we go, people come together.
Coworking is taking off around the world, with over 15,000 cowork spaces operating and over 120,000 fulltime coworkers running their businesses from these spaces. Coworking offers people an affordable, flexible, and inspiring space to work.
We started Desk Cowork on the 2nd of March 2016 with a vision to connect the unconnected. To bring together awesome people who had no physical location to call their own. As home workers, entrepreneurs and people who just can’t sit still, traditional office spaces just weren’t right for us. We started our business in the heart of Old Town, Swindon with a tiny Start Up Loan, a beautiful space and a group of awesome people behind us.
We didn’t really know what we were doing, but what we did know was that Desk had to be founded on a desire to bring people together and build communities. The principle that people do business with people is also deeply ingrained in our culture, a culture in which you become friends with your coworker and networking is just a wonderful by-product.
Desk was founded by Matt when he returned to Swindon living abroad to find it almost impossible to meet other entrepreneurs and people with big ideas in one place. Having felt lost in all that he did, the logical step was to create a home for the great people that make our world go around. The Go-Getters.
We now have 2 amazing cowork spaces, and our community just keeps growing. Our website is built by members, businesses flourish in our space, and friendships are made.
