With one of the lowest unemployment rate in Europe, the Czech Republic – and Prague specifically – qualifies among those countries that offer the best opportunities to get employed with competitive salary and high social benefits.
As the country’s economy expands, its main cities attract entrepreneurs from all over the world looking for investments or a chance to start their own businesses.
This is the case of Evgeny Frolov, a young Russian entrepreneur who conceived the Coworking Space Krizovatka to gather professionals from different work fields and backgrounds.
The venue is a great alternative to public coffees such as Starbucks and Costa Coffee which noisy environments don’t meet the needs of those looking for a more quiet and cozy location.
Furthermore, the current market doesn’t offer many alternatives for professionals in search for a short/mid-term office where relocating for a few months at a reasonable price. A circumstance that the Coworking Space Krizovatka takes into account, proposing a flexible timing schedule with fewer strings attached when compared to what the average competitor requires.
The place – situated in Václavské náměstí 62, a few meters from the Red metro line – has a fast Wi-Fi connection, wireless printer, a small and well-equipped kitchen plus a comfy living room nearby. Its main 3 working rooms are called Jobs (from the founder of the Apple brand: Steve Jobs), Da Vinci and Einstein.
While the first functions as a conference room where maximum 6 people can seat and operate the screen and flip-chart, the second plays the main role. Offering 22 seats in a warm atmosphere, the room displays a set of wooden-made desks and plants replacing the classic grey concrete that normally characterizes these type of spaces. It’s also equipped with a second screen, a high-quality audio system, and a small library. The 3rd and last is now under refurbishment and will need some time to get ready; it shall host between 12 and 15 people.
PlayStation, table tennis, and table football can be played with colleagues during the breaks in order to recharge the ‘mental batteries’ and get ready for a further working session.
Several seminars take place at the Coworking Space, mainly related to presentation skills development, mindfulness, marketing and startups consultation. Events meant to gather entrepreneurs from different business sectors are organized by the Space itself or can be planned by external partners by booking one of the 3 rooms mentioned above. The Coworking Space Krizovatka will then take care of the logistics + the event advertisement via social media.
