The idea behind the name of CoworKite was inspired years ago during a trip to Cape Town, where we often travelled from Europe and Johannesburg for both work and kitesurfing. Our team eventually settled permanently in Cape Town. While we enjoyed entrepreneurial vibe in CBD and there are some cool coworking spaces, we definitely didn’t appreciate having to drive after work in peak-hour traffic to the Blouberg beach to catch some kitesurfing time. On most days, we would miss amazing winds or simply get there after sunset. Disappointing ourselves day after day made us come to a strong conclusion – we absolutely needed a coworking office by the beach in Cape Town. So we created the space for all business kitesurfers and called it CoworKite.
It took us months and months to find the perfect space that fulfilled all of our requirements. It was important for us as entrepreneurs and kitesurfers ourselves to have access to high-speed fibre-optic Internet, comfortable seating, and a well-designed space where the like-minded community can share ideas and improve productivity. Those features, as well as the ability to take a short walk to the beach to release some stress with a bit of kitesurfing, makes up the perfect formula for an extraordinary co-working location.
