The CTO story

In 2010, after more than a decade abroad, I made the move back to my hometown – Cape Town. My work had always allowed me to work remotely and so upon my return, my first port of call was to find a suitable workspace, a coworking space.

To my surprise there were none. I spent a few months looking for the perfect space and in 2011 signed the lease on a small, 110sqm office space in 62 Roeland Street and we’ve been coworking ever since. 

We now occupy a much larger footprint in the same building and have fancier chairs, but the core of what we do and why we do it hasn’t changed.

“Community is better than isolation.”

Since the Covid Pandemic we’ve seen how the world of work has changed, for the better, where employers are more willing and open to letting their teams work remotely. Cape Town Office is home to a number of remote workers who choose to spend their time in a structured space, rather than working from home. Be it for better WiFi, less distractions or to break up the routine it’s almost always the case that the loneliness from working alone can effect your mental health, negatively.

We have room for teams, small companies and of course the individual at CTO.

If you’re ready to make the change and want to explore coworking, I’d love to hear from you.
