Given the growing emphasis on remote work, freelancing, and digital-first job positions, the allure of coworking spaces has become stronger than ever before.

Here’s the dilemma. Today, the business environment is fast-changing, competitive, and volatile. So, companies want their employees to be superheroes to cope with it. Often, leaders promote this goal by creating a performance-obsessed culture. And it can eventually lead to employee burnout and lower job satisfaction.

Building such a culture requires the leader to consider organizational and individual factors.Continue reading “How to Create a Working Culture That Drives Performance”

Yes, we all know the tale about the guy who starts a small company in their garage or basement, has a brilliant idea, and becomes the next Steve Jobs. It’s true, most successes have very humble beginnings. It’s also true that not all garage or basements are going to magically get you a successful business. They might work in the very (very) early stages of your startup, but you can’t always meet a client at coffee shops. That’s why you should consider a coworking space for your startup.
Your home office or a coffee shop won’t be enough!Continue reading “Why You Should Consider a Coworking Space For Your Startup”

We got to the podcast 100 already, and to celebrate it we have invited Yassir Raïs, founder and CEO at Syra Coffee. At Itnig we believe in the potential of his project and Itnig invests in Syra Coffee through the Itnig Fund to support its growth. His claim is to democratize coffee, good coffee. He believes that specialty coffee should not be expensive but it should remain of outstanding quality. His success in his fist shop in Gracia (Barcelona) has encouraged him to dream big and scale the business to become the leader in the sector.
We compared the business to Luckin Coffee (over 1.700 shops) and Starbucks. Check it out here!
