Austin, Texas: home to a diverse landscape of coworking spaces, the Global Coworking Unconference Conference (GCUC), and the Coworking Space Ship’s first stop on its North American tour. It starts with a treasure hunt roving all across Austin, and ends with a party at Conjunctured coworking space.
9am-5pm: The Coworking Treasure Hunt
We have prepared a self-guided tour for you in the form of a Treasure Hunt as a part of day two of the GCUC. Follow our map and visit as many of the coworking spaces in the Austin area that you can to collect the coworking clues, for a chance to win 3 one-month tickets (up to €250/US$330 each) to any coworking space or spaces in the world, and other prizes.
The Coworking Treasure Hunt will lead your exploration of the diverse landscape of coworking in Austin.
As Austin is large and the terrain tough, it may be advisable to make a friend, team-up, rent a car, take a bus, divide the task, or simply run!
So far nine spaces are on the map: Conjunctured, CoSpace, GoLab Austin, HubAustin Coworking, Link Coworking, Perch Coworking, Soma Vida, Space 12 and Tech Ranch.
On Friday 9 March they will be ready for all visitors with smiles, information, mini-tours, and of course the ever important clues. Maps and further information coming soon.
The winners will be announced at the closing party.
6pm-11pm: The GCUC Coworking Closing Party
All conference participants are invited to Conjunctured for a final evening of information, mixing, mingling, connecting, live music, and cheers over some locally brewed beers – on Deskwanted & Deskmag of course. The party is free and open to everyone – half of the tickets are reserved for GCUC participants, but also all local coworkers and people who are interested in coworking can take part in for free.
