Like all the best ideas, Spark CoWork was born over a coffee. A meeting to discuss work projects, quickly turned to the challenges of working from home.
While we both loved the flexibility it offered, we both craved the personal connections and collaboration that comes from working in an office – we knew we weren’t the only ones.
Coworking spaces are popping up all over the world. The idea of a coworking space in Port Stephens had been discussed for many years but no one had ever taken ownership of the concept. As the doers that we are, we decided it was time to make it happen.
As the African proverb says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Our vision is to build a community of local businesses that all go far together!
We have strong values at Spark, we live by them and encourage our community to do the same.
SUSTAINABLE – economically, socially & environmentally. Our business model is sustainable and by supporting local businesses we are creating a sustainable local business eco-system.
PERSISTENT- we have tenacity, persistence and resolve. We do what we say we will do and thrive on finding creative ways of solving problems.
AUTHENTIC – we like to keep it real, be genuine, accurate and reliable.
RESPECT – we treat everyone with respect and expect our community members to do the same.
COMMUNITY – we are all in this together, we support each other. The community is core to Spark and everything we do.
