Change makers have been looking for ways to create social innovations in the past several decades. Thankfully, with the growing popularity of social entrepreneurship, social innovators and change makers are now able to gain more traction than ever on their work. Especially in the 21st century with internet, open source and crowdsourcing is now more useful than ever. People can now come together to brainstorm and create new creative solutions.
This creates new strategies, concepts, ideas, and knowledge base not only for the social innovators, but they tend to share it in the world which produce more solutions for other organizations as well. With this amount of growth in building of a knowledge base, change makers and social innovators end up solving a number of problems that seem insurmountable at first. Education, health, government, community development, and nonprofit sectors seem to depend on this innovation in social change.
At Treehouse Society, we foster relationships built between our members and open dialogue between our members. Members provide tools and thoughts for each other like an open source community. We are building a community of nonprofits, for-profits, change makers, consultants, social innovators, freelancers, artists, activists, and entrepreneurs to create a better future for our world.
Our coworking space serves as a shared workspace, innovation labs, community center, and workshop space for social innovators, freelancers, and entrepreneurs. We support more than 25 members in our community.
Why Coworking is Great for Social Innovations
Space is the platform here. Treehouse Society carefully designed a space that is functional, inviting, and energizing to get work done. Our space is created to foster social innovations. We have spaces for brainstorming, meeting with funders, networking, conferences, workshops, or just lounging so you can relax a bit before getting back to work. Our members have access to amenities such as business grade internet, meeting rooms, event space, printer, mail handling, and kitchen facilities. Not only did we design our space to be functional, we also design our space for social collision for people and ideas to collide and social innovations to thrive.
Our community began as a group of people looking for a place to work. It eventually evolved into a community that share similar value. Our community members help each other with their expertise and connections.
This happens when you mix the right people, values, and environment together. Social innovations emerge when people with different professional backgrounds talk in a welcoming and energizing environment.
Besides the space, community, and innovation component, there are also other benefits to coworking.
