Thinking about joining Locus but not sure if coworking--or this particular coworking space--is right for you? Below are some of the reasons people choose Locus Workspace.
In a coworking space like Locus you are surrounded by other people who are there specifically to work. The energy and sense of focus is contagious. Locus also hosts events to help with professional development, and provides tools to facilitate goal achievement.
IDEAL FOR TRAVELERS & DIGITAL NOMADSIf you're vising Prague for a business trip, you're on a vacation when unexpected work comes up, or you're a digital nomad looking to live and work in Prague for a more extended period, Locus provides an ideal alternative to a hotel business center, an Internet café, or trying to set up your own office in a foreign land. Not only is the office equipment more professional, but the environment is more enjoyable and gives you a chance to meet other people living and working in Prague. Memberships are possible for as little as one day or by the month, making it the perfect office for digital nomads and other working travelers.
If you've relocated to the Czech Republic from another country, or if you're Czech with international work or ambitions (or just want to practice your English), Locus is the ideal place. Although Czech is spoken by many Locus members, the primary language in the space is English and the vast majority of members are from different countries around the globe. This makes Locus an ideal place for learning from others about laws, norms, and other tips for setting up and doing business as a foreigner in the Czech Republic, as well as for making international connections and learning about doing business abroad. There's a Czech-accountant member who specializes in small business accounting for expats, there are Czech language lessons for reasonable prices on the premises, and there are a variety of Czech-oriented books in English, including Czech literature, language learning books, regional history, and travel guides. While Locus's focus is creating a productive workspace, it also serves as an ideal center for expatriate integration into Czech life and work.
Along with the central concern with facilitating social connectedness that is common to most coworking spaces, Locus is largely unique in its emphasis on helping members achieve their work-related goals. Do you need incentives to work a particular set of hours each week? Want to limit your time spent surfing the web? Wish you had a "work buddy" to meet with on a regular basis? Or want to participate in an intensive work retreat where you tackle a long-held research or writing project from start to finish? Locus was created to help provide these kinds of social/environmental supports. If you have other goals or needs that a workspace environment could help you achieve, just let us know and we'll see what we can do.
Locus seeks to foster a wide range of independent workers, committed to the idea that we all benefit from the range of skills and knowledge that comes from embracing diversity. Following are some examples of the types of independent workers Locus was made for:
