What is Co-work Klitmøller? 

Cowork Klitmøller is – well – a coworking space and a Matchmaking Zone (hence an ‘open-ended’ coworking space) for residents and beta-residents of Klitmøller.

What are residents and beta-residents?

Residents live in Klitmøller. Beta-residents are recurring visitors of Klitmøller. We all share a deep relationship with the ocean and the surf, the light and the sand dunes, the wildlife and last but not least the culture and the people of Klitmøller and the entire Cold Hawaii coastline. Residents do most of their work in Klitmøller. Beta-residents live somewhere else and need to bring (some of) their work to Klitmøller to be able to go more often and sometimes stay a little longer.

What line of work are you in?

The place we’re building is perfect for, but not limited to: entrepreneurs, architects, writers, graphic designers, event planners, bloggers, art directors, fashion designers, photographers, filmmakers, web designers, stylists, product designers, as well as makers of all stripes.

What is a Matchmaking Zone?

A Matchmaking Zone is both a virtual network and a venue where residents and beta-residents can meet, connect, think, share and make things together. The starting point is the desire to achieve the personal, professional and social advantages of a strong network and competence community. The purpose of Matchmaking Zones is thus to create value through relationships by providing the best possible conditions for support and cooperation and, above all, the (new) products and services this generates.

So why are you doing this?

We're doing this to: 

Share networks
Learn from each other
Merge competences
Trust each other
Have fun
Make cool stuff
Do business
Earn a (decent) living

What are your values?

Besides basic human rights – and the right to a (really) high-speed internet and lots of coffee, we believe in:

Flexibility
Accountability
Vulnerability
Openness
Generosity
Informality
Profitability

Who's in charge of the Matchmaking Zone?

Until now building the Matchmaking Zone has been led by Rasmus Johnsen (rjohnsen Ltd.), who is also the initiator. We’re working on the right model for an organization and will announce it as soon as possible. The intention is to turn the Matchmaking Zone into a nonprofit with a charitable aim. The place is open to anyone who fits within the scope of what the place is intended for.

What’s the next step?

We're building an online space through which residents and beta-residents can create and facilitate a network. Furthermore we're building a house where residents and beta-residents can meet and create together face-to-face. Once we're done, it'll be easy, rewarding and fun. 

What's cooking right now?

Right now we’re developing the concept and a proof of concept. This involves everything from specifying our target groups, finding the right physical location and uncovering the right organizational setup, to initial funding and last but not last finding the right business model.  

Great! When can I start using the Matchmaking Zone in Klitmøller?
