Coworking spaces are about bringing people together who might not normally interact, or who might work in a more lonely environment (from home at your dining table, or in a coffee shop).
We want to provide much more than just a desk, so we use an app to bring everyone together…yes that’s right, we said app: being a forward thinking business, we knew it was important to have a modern solution to communication. When you join you’ll be given out (iOs and Android) app: it’ll enable you to live chat with anyone who is a member at the space: it’s our communication tool for keeping you informed of all the cool events that are soon to be happening at Raw Space, and it’s a chat platform: every member has their own profile, and you can message members to arrange collaboration, decide where to go for lunch, and simply to introduce yourself: Community is an integral part of what Raw Space represents, so we’ve gone about enabling community in a modern way.
We’ve worked hard to find a team of experts who can help our members and these people can offer professional and personal help. All members have full access to our heroes, who have their own profiles for communication in our app.
How do you get to know about me?
Part of joining Raw Space is completing our questionnaire: it covers some professional and (totally non-invasive) personal questions so we know more about you, the industry and business you work in as well as what your hobbies are and what you want to get from the space.
With this information, our team can carefully consider who else in the space might be useful for you to know better, helping you to get more from the space: from someone who has ‘been there got the t-shirt’ in your industry, to a chess or badminton partner.
Sam Hicks is Raw Space manager. He works within the space, hotdesking like all of our members. It means he understands the ins and outs of Raw Space. He’s there to greet you, to help with any question you may have, to help orchestrate the events and your time in the space.
Sam is smart and understands that Raw Space will never be perfect, but he is committed to iterating the space and seeking to improve it every week.
To keep these developments frequent all members will have a weekly and monthly questionnaire comprised of open questions that aim to simply find out what you want from the space, what you like about the space to help Sam nurture the needs of each individual.
To put a face to the name you can expect to see this face in the space from Monday to Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm and can easily see his diary and make a special appointment if necessary on the public calendar on the website and on the mobile application.
Help us make decisions at Raw Space
We need your help: we have a dedicated suggestions box, and will involve you in crafting the design of the space and the style of the events that we have. the more our members assist, the more useful the events will be.
We ask our members what sort of events they would like to see and what topics they would like to hear about. We then measure turnout to determine the events that have demand.
Raw Space are successfully connecting with a growing number of businesses who are happy to give Raw space members a discount.
