I sat down with George Gabriel, a mover and shaker in Cape Town, and a guru of all things community. I met George back in 2015 at a coworking conference representing a space he had created in Woodstock and the thing that stood out for me was unlike most, his focus was 100% on building community.
Community building is the life blood of coworking, an obvious statement you might think, but you’d be surprised at how often this crucial element is overlooked for aesthetics and gadgets. In this time of Covid-19 the relevance of community and how to build and foster a thriving community is more relevant than ever.
George shares his vision of a reimagined post lock-down economy in South Africa by using the innovation of the coworking movement and the shared economy model of Uber and Airbnb.
We talk about business and how to go about reimagining capitalism in a world post-COVID-19.
