Hercules Coworking Space is a community for creative freelancers and self-employed people.
We have a plan to open a coworking space in Faro, Algarve, where people work, take classes, participate in events and collaborate on projects. We are ready to bring Hercules goodness to Faro on Christmas Eve 2021.
Despite being the capital of the Algarve, Faro can still be a lonely place. Tired of quarantine and isolation, we created the Hercules Coworking Space for freelancers who work in their living rooms or struggle for power outlets in the corner café. Faro has an extremely creative population that deserves a beautiful place to work, teach, learn and meet other people. That's exactly what we've built here and what we're offering to the world.
We explore many different avenues for financing, including traditional financing from VCs, investors and banks. But ultimately, these options don't reflect our mission to be independent and free, nor do they value the same things we do: we're building the Hercules Coworking Space because it's part of our life's work - we're not building it to sell it. We believe the power of Hercules resides in the community, so we decided to turn to the crowdfunding platform that supports the aspirations of individual entrepreneurs to get the job done.
Funds secured through our crowdfunding campaign will be used to build our physical space, the most critical component of Hercules Coworking Space.
