Remote Collective: How Coworking Spaces and Remote Working are Changing the Way We Live, Work and Connect

Not that long ago we released a post that outlined who we are, what we’re about and what do we care for as a company. In other words – the vision we have about the future of work, and the mission we’re on that will take us there.

We feel personally responsible for making sure that the future of work comes sooner rather than later. The coworking community has given us so much, and we feel responsible for trying our best to help the whole industry grow faster and smarter.

Coworking is an ecosystem comprised of many pieces

But even though most of our interactions on a daily basis are with coworking operators, we also get the chance to speak to people and organizations that, like us, are not operators themselves but (also like us) believe in this brighter future of work the same way we do.

Those people come from various backgrounds and industries – be it real estate, technology, hospitality, and entertainment, or even filming. I personally think that we’re very fortunate to have all that talent and energy focus on our industry – that’s a sign that we’re finally starting to get into the adolescent years of coworking.

But to get there faster, the efforts of those amazing people need to be supported by companies like ours. That’s why we’ve decided to invest a considerable amount of our time and resources into bringing as much of those people into the light as possible. Help them share their knowledge and work with the industry.

From coworking people, for coworking people

We’ll make sure that we don’t stop doing webinars with industry experts and interviews with coworking operators. We’ll aggregate the knowledge we gather in all kinds of resources including videos, ebooks, whitepapers or whatever content format suits you, our audience, best.

But this post is dedicated to something very specific – its purpose is to introduce an amazing initiative that we fell in love with the moment we heard about it.

It all starts with 2 amazing people – Brittnee Bond, a coworking consultant who has built, launched and scaled spaces for the last four years, and John Sullivan, a documentary filmmaker who has worked for Discovery Channel and National Geographic for the past 10 years.

They came together rather by chance but have now started something that will significantly impact what the future of work might look like.

Introducing the Remote Collective Documentary Series

Brittnee and John unite forces to create Remote Collective – a documentary series, aiming to showcase how remote work is changing the way we live, work, travel and connect with each other.

They believe that people shouldn’t be stuck in an office to do their job and hope to show the world what it’s really like to live and work remotely.

The team at Remote Collective is on the road to 8 countries in 3 months, visiting and filming coworking and coliving spaces, and talking to people from different coworking communities to find out more about their work style, and the motives that stand behind that choice.

Imagine a full season of “MTV Cribs” style episodes of touring coworking and coliving spaces covering everything from space design, community, and the surrounding area.

Expect also deep-dive interviews with space founders answering questions around scaling, team management, and sales and marketing.

We’re honored to be the main sponsor of the Remote Collective initiative and offer great thanks to Brittnee and John for joining forces with us!

How the idea about Remote Collective was born

Brittnee and John have been traveling and working together since 2017.

For months, they’ve been discussing the idea of filming their travel and work life, because they both had the strong belief this would have a huge and beneficial impact on many other people around the globe.
They wanted to show the world what it’s really like to work remotely and to increase the awareness of this work style.

To showcase coworking and coliving spaces from around the world, and their remote working communities.

To encourage people who are thinking of getting started working remotely, to make that step.
To share tips and advice so others can benefit from them.

And this is how and why Remote Collective was born.

It started with no budget, but with pure love and dedication to the idea.

“We had our passionate idea, our skill sets and our credit card. No one gave us permission to do this. We decided we were going to create it and we carried this vision with us.”, Brittnee shares.

She reveals that the secret of success is to believe in yourself, then to get started and spread the word. And eventually, it will all come into place!

We believe that too!

Because it didn’t take us much to understand that Remote Collective is a project we want to support and contribute to! We felt that with the first email lines we exchanged with the Remote Collective team when they reached out to us.

Not only do we share their values, purpose, and vision, but we’re impressed by the passion, that those two amazing people have for what they do.

And we’re grateful and proud we can support them on their mission.
