One of the undisputed benefits of coworking is that it provides an opportunity for networking and interaction. A coworking space is an ideal place to collaborate with others, brainstorm ideas and cultivate opportunities to work together forming a community.
As Hive Coworking, we are excited to have played a role in making this happen for two of our coworkers.
On International Coworking day which fell on the 9th of August, we held a networking event at our coworking space where we caught up with Sydney Gondwe from Crypto Gaming United Zambia and Head of Operations – Southern Africa Karen Pumulo Sifuniso from Yellow Card who shared how sharing office space at our coworking space led to a collaboration.
Crypto Gaming United (CGU) is a platform that brings people from developing countries together to build a new virtual economy and earn a sustainable income, while learning new digital skills and engaging with the global blockchain gaming community.
We asked Sydney to share his experience working at the Hive and how CGU has benefited from being in a coworking space:
“For us, the best experience has been meeting Yellow Card through the ecosystem provided in the coworking space. We have also been working with communities teaching them digital literacy and how to manage their digital currency. Fortunately, Yellow Card has provided a platform for us to do so” –Sydney Gondwe, CGU.
Yellow Card is a Financial Technology (FinTech) startup focused on building a new financial infrastructure for the African continent. Yellow Card provides a platform for cryptocurrency exchange that offers the safest way to store, buy, sell, send and receive bitcoin.
Karen similarly shared how meeting with CGU at the coworking space has impacted their work as Yellow Card.
‘We are excited to have had a chance to meet with CGU. We found a closer link to communities through CGU as their work is helping us to demystify cryptocurrency for the public” –Karen Pumulo Sifuniso, Yellow Card.
As Hive Coworking, we are proud to highlight that CGU and Yellow Card, working in partnership, successfully hosted a presentation at the 94th Agriculture & Commercial Show Highlighting Web3 Technologies. You can have a look at photos from their collaboration at the Show here. We believe coworking is more than just sharing a space but creating collaborations and partnerships.
