Co-working is becoming the new norm that brings many benefits for an entrepreneur. You do not need to worry about details like coffee or toilet paper supplies that don’t have an impact on the business itself. Let us introduce our customers from up north, Crazy Town, a community of entrepreneurs that help each other grow.

Co-working spaces are more than just a facility or a way to save time from mundane routines. Also, even though places like Crazy Town tend to be roomy and stylish, it is still more about the collective, the mindset of being there for one another. The thrill of sharing the journey and getting pointers to make the rollercoaster ride of running a business a bit less bumpy.

Nuppu Laaksonen, one of the community managers at Crazy Town, says: “It starts with meeting each other and starting a conversation.” as she talks about the events happening in Crazy Town. “Just this noon, I could see people exchanging business cards and plans to help each other while enjoying lunch.” So it is continuously happening, she confirms.

Crazy Town has facilities in Jyväskylä, Tampere, Hämeenlinna, and Pori. There are plans of opening up also somewhere around the Helsinki region.

Seravo is also part of the Crazy Town community. Although there are also conversations between the Crazy Town team and Seravo as their website upkeep partner, the discussions typically revolve around education and advice. People from Seravo are regular attendees and speakers at the morning coffee events held weekly at the Crazy Town main hall in Tampere.

“The fact that we haven’t had to be in touch with Seravo about the website is a sign that everything works smoothly,” adds Nuppu.
