Bangkok’s first co-working space, Hubba, is popular among Thai entrepreneurs and freelancers. Located in the very happening Ekkamai area, Hubba is 300 square meters in area and can fit up to 70 people simultaneously. The co-working space now has 60 active members and co-founders Amarit Charoenphan and Charle Charoenphan expect to hit 150 members by March. Some of the startups housed at Hubba include Creativemove, Infinit Closet, Computerlogy, and Pheromone Studio.
The walk from Ekkamai station to Hubba feels a little long, especially under the hot sun. But all is forgotten when you arrive at the homely ground of Hubba. It even feels a bit like a house, which makes it cozy to work in.
Hubba doesn’t just stop at Bangkok, and will soon be expanding to Chiang Mai. Amarit told me:
We are expanding to Chiang Mai via our partnership with Pun Space due to our belief in the potential of the city, given the large amount of talented graduates in programming, large expat freelance community setting up tech and web companies. We plan to expand to four spaces in 2013.
Besides running the co-working space, Amarit and Charle also act as event organizers, helping organizations such as Thumbsup and e27 to run events locally in Thailand. The duo also run events like Startup Weekend, Startup Outing, and Jellyweek 2013, which is happening this week.
So if you’re in Bangkok and looking for a cozy space to work, head over to Hubba:
