Considered to be the "City of the Young" where almost half of its 2.68 million citizens are under the age of 24, Quezon's nickname is "QC". It is one of the most populated cities in the Philippines and has been dubbed the "City of New Horizons". You will not be short of a coworking space to invade, as they are popping up all over the city like mushrooms under a tree. The spaces are bright, funky and overflowing with interesting individuals from all over the globe as well as local professionals, startups and students.
Coworking spaces have been the answer for many entrepreneurs looking for somewhere to work from to get their ideas off the ground and to be around likeminded souls all talking the same tech language. The ecosystem is young in a fragmented region where there is little sophistication. Today the hope is that with more support and funding, the nation's talent of which there is no lack, will be able to succeed in their home country rather than having to go abroad. The market situation is rare with low percentages of computer, Internet and smartphone penetration. Then there is the problem of a 2-tier market in the Philippines - the high-end small smartphone market plus the low-end tier. Entrepreneurs have to decide whether to aim their endeavours on a global platform to begin with or to tackle both markets in their home country in one hit.
If you find yourself in this steamy bustling city you will get a giggle out of riding in a jeepney to your coworking space of choice and when its time to strap on the feed bag you will find plenty of adobo to gulp down.
