What is Coworking and Coliving Space?
Coworking and Coliving Space are new ways to adapt the environments that an entrepreneur or startup needs to lower expenses, willing to make a business idea viable and the people behind it feel comfortable for spending what they need having always the best possible experience.
Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity. Unlike in a typical office environment, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization. Typically it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation. Coworking is also the social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently, but who share values, and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with people who value working in the same place alongside each other.
Coworking offers a solution to the problem of isolation that many freelancers experience while working at home, while at the same time letting them escape the distractions of home. (taken from wikipedia)
We define Coliving as a new style of how to live in a community deciding by yourself what you want to share and what you want to keep private without being physically apart from a community. Coliving spaces have different options depending of the kind of community you are looking for, but normally offer private rooms with private bathrooms some have even private kitchens, with the option of sharing social spaces like entertainment rooms, patios, terraces and more. There are Coliving spaces where you also have shared kitchens, dining rooms, private bar, bike parkings and a close or insite Coworking space.
Coliving spaces are part of the evolution of entrepreneurs looking for a complete independent way to live without feeling apart of communities that may be helpful in achieving personal objectives.
What is Magicville?
Coworking and Coliving space in the same place
This is an intercultural group of dreamers with different profiles, interested in collaborating, learning and providing ideas while sharing a Coworking and Coliving space. We are a community from all corners of the world wanting to make our dreams and projects a reality.
The idea started…
In March 2014, founder Harvey Botero was able to travel to San Francisco, California, where he found cultural elements not very common in his native land of Colombia. While in the world’s tech capital, he absorbed as much as he could to later be applied on his own projects in Colombia.
While in the Bay Area, he worked for one of the city’s best coworking spaces, 20Mission. As the space’s manager, he understood the way in which new entrepreneurs, in a collaborative way, can make their startup’s ideas begin to take shape, be promoted and accelerated by using shared spaces where the costs are reduced to the point where almost any idea can be sustainable.
The key to success is minimal administrative and physical investment and by adding the opportunity of using the space as a residence, it allows you to cut even more expenses as travel and time invested in getting to work is reduced to only a few steps. This allows any startup to focus on what’s really important: the successful outcome of the idea.
Magicville is where all this ideas are combined and mixed with the Colombian culture. Striving to provide our members all the advantages of shared social spaces such as kitchen, tv rooms, terrace, conference rooms and on-site bar with the convenience of only living footsteps away from all of it.
