What is Coworking? Coworking is a work style, where people with different professions and jobs get together to share the work place, and share, through active communications, knowledge and information for the better ment. “co”＋“working”＝“coworking” → Working together This kind of work style started in the USA in 2006. Lots of people t hen called it “ a new way of working”. The fact is even before 200 6 there had been people who worked in “coworking” style”. I ther efore think that coworking is a global “new movement” triggered b y a new label, “coworking”, put on that kind of working style.
Working as Partying Work experiences at a big company, venture businesses and as a freelance Why some people say “I’m fed up with this company”? I saw many people playing chess in the daytime along the roadside in Asia What is happiness or successful situation in life Guests meets by chance at paxi house tokyo, and start their business toget her Is there any working place where 100 % of the people are smiling? （8month↓9 days ） And finally I found out such places already exist in the world!!

Aim of Coworking To make the world a better place Collaboration beyond area/business category Think differently by accepting/know ing others’ view Understand the meaning of jobs in t he wider world
Coworking connection to the world In July 2010, almost nobody knows about coworking nor Jelly. I had the first Jelly next month, and little by little more people got to know about this new way of working. 独 I was not sure if Coworking became popular or not, but I thoght PAX Coworking can, and should be, the special place to connect with other coworkers all over the world. Beginning of 2011, I visited Vietnam and Taiwan, and gave advices to the Jelly founder and potential coworking owners. PAX Coworking was the only one which joined European JELLYWEEK outside of Europe. This makes the JELLYWEEK worldwide. I assumed the post of the first JELLYWEEK Ambassodor in Asia.
