Women empowerment and the rise of flexible workspaces were the key themes of the events partnered by COWRKS last season
COWRKS partnered with The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), to support the association’s ‘India Flexible Workspace Summit 2023’. The theme for the event, held in Mumbai, was ‘Accelerating Transformation of Flexspace – Trends and Innovation’.
Coworking spaces offer organizations a cost-effective alternative to long term leases. One of the sessions at the summit discussed how policy support can encourage the growth of the segment. The event also featured conversations on new workplace technologies and integration of smart solutions. The last session was about how building flexible workspaces in non metro cities can transform them into booming economic centers, thus alleviating congestion in major urban cities.
Recently, COWRKS also collaborated with Catalyst for Women Entrepreneurs (CWE) to empower women leaders from across the country. CWE is an accelerator/incubator that helps women-led startups scale up. As a part of the association, COWRKS hosted events across its centers, in which budding women entrepreneurs showcased their products and businesses to tenants via fireside chats and popups. Called ‘The LeadHers of Today’, the campaign ran for 30 days and gave a platform to 50 women entrepreneurs.
Flexible workspaces and the rise of women entrepreneurs are two major developments of 21st century business. Brookfield Properties is excited to team up with organizations that are accelerating these trends.
