What's a /Space and why is it so special?
A /Space is a multiple day work retreat focusing on a dedicated topic. The program is partly curated by us. Attendees bring and work on their own projects but are invited to share, present and involve others. Imagine a combo of a conference, a TED event and a co-working space - with the warmth of a living room and without the rush of a one-day-happening, It's a workation next to great (surf) beaches in company with a bunch of good inspiring folks. And the best: Enter it into your accounting :-)
