What is CoWomen?
CoWomen is Berlin’s first community club and coworking space for women. A place where driven women cowork in a beautiful space and support each other to thrive. CoWomen also helps them unleash their potential by offering them inspiring community events, workshops to develop their skills, and exclusive mentoring. We launched this idea with a Pop-Up, and now, we’re moving to a bigger space to bring together an even bigger community of inspiring women. We’ll be filling an amazing new location in the Alte Münze in Berlin-Mitte with a welcoming community area, productive working space, a creative studio, and so much more from early 2019 onwards.
How did the idea come about?
It all began when Hannah, our cofounder, was struggling to find a place both for her newborn son, Henry, and herself. She was looking for a perfect place for her every-work-day. An idea was born. Since then, Hannah’s idea has grown into a place that offers everything a working woman needs.
When Hannah reached out for more women to join CoWomen, she didn’t have to look too far. Sara, a well-known former colleague in software consultancy, got on board and added skills in project management and community building to the team. At the same time, Kat joined to head the communication strategy having gained ample marketing experience in NYC, London, and Berlin.
What do you love so much about the community at CoWomen?
What we love about our community is that the women that come into the space aren’t just another number – not only do we connect with them all, but they do so with each other. These women are making a difference in the world and actively engaging with the community by exchanging experiences and sharing inspiration. We connect women with each other and mentors, offering them the perfect environment to help them achieve their goals and make their dreams come true.
Why do you think Berlin needs this women-only space?
We firmly believe in the positive effect of strengthening women in business and the enormous impact they can have on society and the economy. Everyone profits from more successfully working women! And because building networks is a deciding factor to achieve this, it’s what we focus on at CoWomen. By creating an inspiring space where driven women can connect to together shake up the (working) world, we want to help women unleash their potential and become the next generation of female leaders.
What is your favorite thing about Berlin?
Hannah: That it’s always changing!
Sara: No matter what you wear or what you do, there is someone crazier than you in this city. I love that feeling, and I love that this city never sleeps.
Kat: I love Berlin’s laidback vibe. Having moved from other big cities, I like the fact that Berlin has all the diversity and opportunities that other big cities have but takes everything one step slower. It’s less hurried and people don’t just live to work here.
Where is your favorite place in Berlin?
Kat: I’m a total book nerd, so Dussmann in the Friedrichstraße is my favorite spot in Berlin. It’s a huge bookstore – or better said “KulturKaufhaus” as they call it, which roughly translates to “culture department store” – that you can get lost in for hours. They also have a great English section inside!
Sara: The market at Herrmann-Platz. I love the buzz, the active and happy sellers, and the smell of fresh vegetables and Mexican street food.
Hannah: I love a little place on Karl-Marx-Allee under a Japanese cherry tree. It changes its color so beautifully in spring. From there you can look along Karl-Marx-Allee with a view of the fountain at Strausberger Platz and at the end you can see the TV tower. A place with a lot of velocity and yet so much endurance.
