Some of the biggest updates you may have missed from across the coworking world this week.

There’s so much happening across the coworking world, that alot of interesting things get missed. 

We’re going to see if we can provide weekly summaries of the biggest updates, wins or rumours from across the sector.

We’re committing to try it out these This Week In Coworking (TWIC) posts for a couple of weeks, and with your help (see how to contribute below) we may be able to make this sustainable.

Here we go!
