Why coworking leads to collaboration and hopefully a lot less clean water wasted!
There were many reasons I decided to open Estúdio447 Coworking Moema & English Club. Firstly, because I wanted a place to work and teach away from the home office and well away from Starbucks! Secondly, because I wanted to be in an environment where I could collaborate everyday on new ideas, innovations and startups. Today I am an English teacher, designer and entrepreneur. Estúdio447 is where I work, teach, create, learn and play. I sincerely believe that coworking and collaboration is the key to leveraging success in today's world. It is how I choose to work and if you are not already, then I invite you to begin working the same way.
A great example of exactly this happened to me just last week. Since opening Estúdio447, I became part of a small team of entrepreneurs developing a new product to help tackle the water crisis in São Paulo. The initiative is called Águawell Light and last week we launched a campaign on the crowdfunding platform Kickante. Our aim is to raise R$60,000, enough money to make this product a reality. In short, the product collects the clean water that is wasted every time you take a shower. Did you know that the average person with a gas shower wastes 6 litres of water each time they wait for the water to heat up? Aguawell Light is the solution we created for this problem. It enables you to store the clean water until the next time your water is cut off or you can put it to good use straight away by doing your washing, flushing the toilet or watering your plants at home. There are lots of other innovate features to this product, which I won't go into detail in this post, but please do check out the video above and learn more by following this link to the Aguawell Light crowdfunding campaign.
The initial team behind Aguawell began using the meeting room at Estúdio447 to develop their idea and to collect feedback from the people working here. I was one of those people and along the way I was invited to join the team and to become a part of this exciting new product. This is how coworking leads to collaboration. It's not complicated. It is just a matter of being around other like-minded people with a good idea and before you can blink, things start happening.
Estúdio447 is a place for entrepreneurs, designers, startups and creative people. Together we want to make Moema a place where exciting ideas happen. That's it! Oh and you will probably improve your English at the same time (after all, we are an English Club too). So, if you are open to learn, collaborate and explore new ideas, then get involved and come visit the people at Estúdio447.
Don’t forget to support the Aguawell Light campaign and sharing with your friends.
