CoworKite is a co-working space startup based in Cape Town. The startup is offering entrepreneurs and startups access to community driven “workations” that range from one week to three months long.
CoworKite launched last year near Cape Town in a city called Blouberg, providing internet, offering workspace, as well as access to mentors and investors for startups. The startup also plans to soon expand to Mauritius.
The workation is tailored to meet the needs of remote workers and business kite surfers who want to avoid the cold winters in their countries and stay in the warm, welcoming Cape Town.
Close to Cape Town’s famous watersport beach is where the shared workspace is located. Blouberg offers amazing conditions for kitesurfing, windsurfing, and regular surfing.
Users can book for a minimum of one week and a maximum of up to three whole months. The workation includes weekly workshops as well as other business and community events.
Matija Rukavina, the founder of CoworKite, said, “After a highly successful first year of running a co-working office by the beach in Cape Town, we have decided to start our own three months workation program in January 2018.
“There are more retreats available for digital nomads every day, but we believe our community-driven event will attract the right people who share a passion for the beach lifestyle and watersports.”
“It will be a fantastic experience to run our first workation. Cape Town becomes the epicenter of kitesurfing in January, and it is one of the best cities to live and work remotely,” said Rukavina.
