Company Culture in Coworking Spaces influenced by “Foursquare” and “Groupon”?Veröffentlicht am 26.

Very often when we speak of the culture in coworking spaces, we think of the way people communicate and relate to each other. We believe that shared values will attract the right people that we like to share our workspace and ideas with. Most of the time we find though that we run our own business or do our own job in parallel to this coworking space culture. I therefore ask myself what happens to the coworking culture when people that previously worked by themselves join in the coworking space to form a company? Can something like a company culture develop in a coworking space? When Brad Neuberg started coworking with Spiral Muse in August 2005, he wanted to “replicate exactly what it is like to work at a cool company” like Google. Since then many companies have started up like Foursquare (Start 2009) and Groupon (Start 2008) that have the potential to be as influential as Google (Start 1998) in the internet and maybe on coworking culture as well. On Monday at this years DLD, Dennis Crowley (Foursquare) and Andrew Mason (Groupon) gave an insight into their company cultures and the way they see the development of their business models of ”social, local & E-commerce”. Please comment whether you believe there is a new company culture that comes with these two firms and whether this culture will influence coworking culture.
