While co-working spaces have mushroomed in Beirut in recent years, a new concept tailored to the independent workforce is currently being pioneered by a tech hub in the city. Inaugurated in January, the first venue powered by antwork is located along Spears Street in Beirut's Hamra district, and is already home to 16 startup companies and around 180 freelancers and co-workers. Rather than a real estate project, antwork is firstly a tech product that its creators hope to export at the rate of four venues per year, with their sights set on Europe as well as the wider Middle East.All registered users, including startups, freelancers and occasional users, can also access the common space, which includes meeting rooms that can be booked through the app.The creators of the antwork model aim to power other venues around the world with the same technology, enabling antwork users to have a flexible office space abroad as well. Mirum, a digital agency working in 45 countries, chose to relocate its Beirut office to be part of the project.
