“… In this article we will introduce you to three extraordinary coworking spaces in the Canary Islands.
1. “Cocoworking” on Fuerteventura: Founded with a great vision
“Cocoworking“ on Fuerteventura was founded by Matteo, who has a big vision. In addition to high-quality desks, comfortable chairs and fast WiFi, “Cocoworking” should above all be a place for exchange. A place where you can meet interesting people and exchange fascinating ideas – with 24/7 access. With “Cocoworking” Matteo creates a space for people who think beyond the usual work ethic and want to support productivity, collaboration and the connection to a larger goal with their work.
