Akimbo Virtual Coworking

A virtual coworking space for people who would rather not work alone.

The world has turned upside down, and too many of us are dealing with serious health threats.

If you’re fortunate enough to be safe and well, it’s entirely possible that you’re now working at home.

That can be lonely. We work better together.

We've built a place where you can sit with others (virtually) while you get your work done. A place where you can take a break now and then and have meaningful discussions online together.

It begins now, it’s available for the next month, and there’s no cost to be part of it.

It’s a place for you to find community during this time of separation and uncertainty.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • A community discussion board with topic starters surrounding remote work, resilience, leading virtually, productivity, accountability, navigating uncertainty, and more
  • Video chat Zoom rooms where you can talk (or simply sit quietly) side by side with other people who are working remotely
  • Live conversations and Q&A sessions with Seth Godin and Akimbo coaches
  • Speed connecting opportunities
  • Daily resource suggestions
  • Plus, an occasional diversion during these difficult times

It’s open 24 hours a day and it’s free.

We’ll open it on March 19th, 2020 and keep it open until April 19th, 2020, conditions permitting.

No sales pitches, nothing but companionship.

How it works

An online discussion board for those interested in coworking together online. Separately and together. No pitches, no hustle, just a chance to be with the others.

Before you begin, you can take these steps to ensure you’re prepared to fully participate:

  • Download Zoom Client For Meetings on your computer and test it out by opening it up. This is the free software we will use to run some of the side by side moments, so be ready.
  • Through the free registration process, you will receive a login for our online coworking community, which runs on Discourse. There you will find all the discussion opportunities and meet the others.
  • Please fill in your bio once you arrive.
  • That’s it! Come as you are, whenever it works for you.
  • There’s no cost to participate. This is separate from our paid workshops and from our flagship altMBA. We’re looking forward to having you join us.
