So an observation … women are dominating this entrepreneurial space. I spent a great evening, colloquially called ‘Fuck Up Nights’, where women shared their mistakes, failings and learnings as people and entrepreneurs in the start up space. Each had a tail that we could ALL relate to, each were humble and usually had a funny self-depreciating twist on how they reflected on and what they learnt from the experience.
It just may be that co working spaces suit women, as they aim to get stuff done within a supportive environment. I’m not saying resourceful and impactful men won’t engage and thrive in this space too, but this week has clearly shown me that the environment created has been created because woman are equal contributors.
The other observation is just how amazing it is to see early 20’s to mid 30's women (and men) but particularly women just thrive in this place. Newly graduated women who want to get out into the world and make a start on their careers, being interns, working as educators in the schools here with under privileged and disabled children, or just starting and playing in a small project- no fear and getting on with it. …I'm very inspired!
