Share Your Space Launch

Share Your Space Launch

"Share Your Space is a parent-friendly shared working space. We love the shared working spaces that already exist in Dunedin. They allow entrepreneurs to escape the isolation of working from home, get away from at home distractions while enjoying the community and collaborative benefits of surrounding themselves with like-minded people. We also get that bringing small children, toddlers and babies into a working space could be disruptive for people trying to work. This is our solution."
