The first co-working center in Turkmenistan started operating on Tuesday. The project, implemented by the "Iş nokady" business society, was launched with the support of the United Kingdom Embassy in Turkmenistan.
The opening ceremony, which was held at the Berkarar Business Center, was attended by representatives of local businesses, along with the ambassador of the United Kingdom.
Jemile Kerimova, director of the company, noted in her speech that, based on the experience of co-working centers in Central Asia and Europe, such a center, which opened for the first time in Turkmenistan, would turn into a creative space.
The British Ambassador spoke about the relevance of the "Iş nokady" co-working center in terms of improving young people. Ambassador Philpott noted that the center will provide opportunities for future entrepreneurs and creative people to start their own businesses with minimal risks.
The Iş nokady Co-working Center offers one-day and one-month packages for freelancers and those wishing to engage in entrepreneurial activities. The center provides separate meeting and work spaces.
Turkmenistan had previously attempted to open a co-working center. The opening ceremony was held in August 2018 in the hotel "Olympia". But at the moment this center is not functioning.
Co-working centers involve several companies or entrepreneurs working together in a single center, using all the office facilities. The organization of such centers began at the beginning of the 21st century. The co-working centers facilitate the emergence of new business ideas and the formation of new companies.
