Property News/ 2 October 2017

scoopoint (6)Co-working is a global movement to create innovative, collaborative and community driven workspaces that move beyond traditional work environments. Stop working alone – work for yourself, not by yourself.

In recent years, co-working space has been emerging as a new trend in Asia. This is supported by the rapid increase of remote workers and changing working styles, as new generations seek more flexibility in their job.

Co-working spaces are also sprouting up in Malaysia and a new player has just joined the fray in Penang. Located at the heart of Georgetown, disruptive co-working space Scoopoint offers amazing working environment and facilities. It is also a platform to live up to one’s passion, network, collaborate and inspire one another.

Penang is such a wonderful place to live, work and play. Unfortunately, many Penangites have left the beautiful island because of limited resources for career development, business advancement and chances of starting a business. Scoopoint aspires to change this perception to help Penang retain its talents.

Scoopoint founder Mei Tan said, “We connect entrepreneurs from different backgrounds and industries. We create a platform for them to collaborate, create opportunities and grow together as a strong and positive community here in Penang.
