It has been one month since I arrived here, the U.S. and three weeks since I started to work here at Citizen Space where I am working as an intern from Japan. When I heard about the concept of “CoWorking” I was really excited. “I’ve never heard like this idea in Japan!” Today, I would like to write how I feel in this office now about this new concept “CoWorking” from my point of view.

Coworkify: Job market for co-workers in the world!

Posted on 09. Feb, 2012 by in Coworking, Internships, Japan, SOMA, Startups

Co-working spaces are filled with two Ts. Tasks and Talent. What if we you could buy and sell these two Ts with all the co-workers in the world? Anew Facebook app called Coworkify is aiming to do just that. This app, developed by Japanese team, creates a job market place for co-workers, allowing users to post wills and wants.

Wills: Post your skill or talent and how much you’re charging.

Wants: Post your request for help and how much you’re willing to pay.

Coworkify will only allow access to users who are actually a using co-working space. This creates a link and trust between users.

If you don’t understand my poor English, just watch this video :)

I addition to those features, the owner of a co-working space can use this app as a Co-worker Relationship Management(CRM) tool.

It all started from Coworkify winning the grand prize at Startup Weekend Kyoto 2011. Now co-working spaces from all over the world are reaching out to them, waiting for its launch. Citizen Space is one of them too!

So sign up for Coworkify for more update from here! They are also looking for partner co-working spaces to test their beta version.

My first post on Coworkify will probably be … “I will teach you how to speak Japanese in Citizen Space for 10,000yen!”  um, anybody?!
