04-12-2022 • 28 mins

During this interview, we talk about:

  • Stacey and her space, The Tribe
  • How she designed her space in the middle of rural Devon, 2000 habitants
  • Barriers female entrepreneurs and mompreneurs face in their career

1:08 – It’s a very, very, very small space, about 45 m²

3:22 – As soon as I heard about coworking, I thought ‘this is the future of work’

8:20 – I wanted to make it for female entrepreneurs because of the barriers they face in their career

10:55 – Until we had to close during the first lockdown, that was a dark time...

13:00 – After the 2nd lockdown, I had the energy to pivot to an online community

16:05 – We thought we would struggle during the summer holidays, but got surprised by a new type of member, tourists

18:30 – We don’t exclude anybody, but men who come here are only looking for a desk

21:26 – You don’t have those conversations when you work by yourself at home

23:20 – Do you plan to be more than 8 people in your space?

26:10 – Coworking got a bright future
