"...Thus, here we are at a crossroads. Rather than just staying home in our cozy house in East Austin, we have committed to opening the design and cultural values of coworking into the broader world. We are inviting other folks, folks who are not indigenous to coworking, into the space to share the experience with them. We are opening up to the outside, explicitly, and encouraging an exchange between people from different walks of life. We want to spread the space and values of coworking to companies, government organizations, schools, and hotels, to wherever the velvet community of coworking can make the world a better place."
"Work-life balance implies you have two separate personalities – the you who you are at work and the you who you are “everywhere else.” This subtle but powerful assumption might have you scratching your head. We’re so conditioned to be different at work – to be efficient and productive (meaning: leave your values and heart at the door). At home, you’re supposed to be slower – more loving and caring with yourself and others (meaning: embody your real values there)."
We’ve moved into an age where responsible economic development is due large in part to a locally-focused view on sustainable investing. If you’re an investor looking to invest in your community in a sustainable way, we’ll help set up a meeting with a potential match, and provide support along the way to help facilitate a win-win.
In September 2014, after six years of coworking, the Conjunctured house closed its doors. If you’re looking to join a coworking community in Austin, though, there’s still many great coworking options in town. Fun fact: With 23 coworking spaces (and growing), Austin is one of the top three most coworking-dense cities in the world. After the space closed, in an effort to open the ‘coworking model’ into greater society, Conjunctured partners, Drew and David, launched The OpenWork Agency, a Coworking Strategy Consultancy.
