In 2017, we have seen the rise of freelancers, such as graphic artusts, online tutors, Virtual Assistants, Copywriters and many more. However, there are very few places, freelancers can work in. This leads freelancers to work in Coffee Shops and Restaurants. The downside is that coffeeshops only has an average internet connection speed, which is not sufficient if many freelancers connect at the same time. In addition, they cannot leave their space easily for a pee break. They will need to pack up first.
My partners in TrainingPH and I believes that there are great potential in freelancers can offer. In line with this we support freelancers, business starters and SMEs.
We would like to build an office for freelancers in the heart of Metro Manila. We are now discussing lease terms with possible locations. But we will be needing more funds to make this project a reality.
We envision this place to have
- ergonomic tables
- power outlets
- High Speed Fibr Connection
- A meeting room
- Overflowing coffee/tea
We also envision this place to be a training venue on weekends where we can cater training in aim to develop the skills and professionalism of freelancers and business starters.
