“The evolution of coworking – from a desk and a chair, to a collaborative workspace, to a highly productive, curated community – will only continue to evolve as companies and professionals adapt to the changes in how, when and where we work.” –– Matt Cooper, VP of oDesk
Talent Garden – the first international network of coworking campuses with a focus on digital, tech and creative professionals – is set to launch their first Spanish campus in Barcelona on March 11th, 2015.
While Barcelona is no stranger to coworking – the Catalan capital is home to over 150 coworking spaces – Talent Garden puts its own unique spin on the shared workspace concept. TAG exists at the point where digital, tech and creative professionals collide providing an inspiring and productive space connected to a powerful global community.
“Barcelona is one of the most important cities in the world for innovation and entrepreneurship,” says Davide Dattoli, co-founder and CEO of Talent Garden. “It’s a multicultural ecosystem that acts as a natural bridge, allowing our members to connect easily with professionals from different backgrounds, nationalities and businesses worldwide.”
The defining characteristic of every Talent Garden campus is the space itself. Thoughtfully designed for maximum creative inspiration and productivity, each Talent Garden is created using a charming mix of eco-friendly furniture and garden-inspired elements interweaved with the latest tech hardware. Members have unlimited access to glassed-in brainstorming rooms, foosball matches, and the famous bubble chair – a staple in every city.
The carefully constructed interior design maintains an ideal balance between eclectic cozy comfort and professional functionality. This harmony is part of the formula that fosters collaboration and digital innovation among members while still injecting a semblance of work-life balance – even during those inevitable weeklong sprints.
Global Network of Campuses
This is where Talent Garden plants its flag and differentiates from other co-working spaces. They are creating a “glocal” community, where members consistently bring value to each other through creative osmosis in the everyday shared space, yet can connect across boarders to other campuses with a click of the mouse.
Although the Talent Garden Barcelona is just getting started, the global community is already 600 members strong with 10 campuses in operation throughout Europe and 6 more on the horizon for 2015. This global network – which is exclusive to members – offers immediate and unlimited access to talented professionals all over the world.
The goal is for members to be able to focus on their projects but also receive support and inspiration from the community. TAG is a space where new ideas are brought to life in a collaborative environment so designers, developers and entrepreneurs can produce their best work.
Events & Education
Because of its inspiring physical space and positioning in the creative and entrepreneurial community, Talent Garden Barcelona will play host to hundreds of events each year from workshops to hackathons to good ‘ole fashioned movie nights. In fact, they’re not wasting anytime getting started in the event community as TAG BCN will be the home of Innovation on the Fringe, officially kicking off the Mobile World Congress this coming Sunday!
Facts & Figures
The Talent Garden membership starts at €150 per month and offers a range of membership levels depending on your specific needs. Earlybirds that join before March 31st, receive an exclusive discount on their first month of membership.
Where is it?
