Our coworking community consists of freelancers, self-employed, company employees and commuters from different industries, with different skills and knowledge. Many of the coworkers are there almost every day and others come regularly on an irregular basis. One of the advantages is networking, exchanging and occasionally collaborating with the other coworkers. You could almost think that the people in the coworking space work for the same thing. Which they sometimes do! There are projects that are managed by BASIS and a team of our coworkers works together. So, you could say that they work with and sometimes for us. That’s how networking works! Below you can find all coworkers.
