Our team is ecstatic to have launched this incredible, innovative, artistic city. With amazing community, history, art, food and much more, their is always something going on. Don’t just take it from us, our amazing workspace partners, shared their favorite things about Berlin. Plus they gave us details about their awesome new space, in the heart of Berlin. Check it out below!

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!
berlinSara: 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.

Women's Only Coworking Space: Our Two Day Event

Women Supporting Women

After frequenting numerous coworking spaces around the world, we know there is a need and desire for female-only spaces. With all these fantastic, female-only coworking spaces popping up around the world, there are still almost none in Asia. After our founder, Meesen Brown, entered one-too-many male dominated spaces, she decided to create her own space. A space for women to meet, connect, chat and share tips and experiences. But most importantly, a space for them to feel comfortable, and for it to be a beautiful space that cultivates creativity and inspiration. Thus, our women’s only coworking space pop-up was born.

We hosted this coworking space as a two day event in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in collaboration with our partner, Coworker and it was AMAZING. The event was free, thanks to our team at Behere and Coworker treated everyone to their first coffee and snacks. Float Chiang Mai also sponsored the event, providing tasty and healthy vegan bars.

The event was full of interesting conversations, inspiring stories and meaningful connections. With more than 60 women from 14 countries over the course of two days, there was a great turn out. The women shared their experiences traveling, what prompted them to take the leap to start working while traveling and for many, how they started their own businesses to do so.

We held a quick introduction chat to better get to know one another, hear about each others exciting projects, and spread the word about what we’re creating at Behere. We’ll be sharing some of the women’s stories this week so stay tuned to hear what inspired them and how they created flexible lifestyles that they truly love.

To wrap up the two-day event we held drinks at a nearby rooftop during sunset. Some women who couldn’t make it during the day showed up for that and despite the chilly (70°F weather – that’s chilly for Thailand!) everyone had a great time.

Special thanks to our awesome partners and sponsors who made this event possible and to the inspiring women who attending. We’re looking forward to hosting more events like this around the world and were thrilled by the success and response of this one. We know the need for these spaces and connections with female communities is an important part of what we’re doing and we can’t wait for more to come. There will be video footage and featured stories from some the women to follow, stay tuned!
