There’s no place like CTO
Working with awesome people, all the time.
In December a digital nomad called Jacob arrived in Cape Town and needed a coworking space. He’s been on the ‘road’ for a little over a year now, spending a month or more per Country before he moves on to the next, utilizing all the tools you’d imagine from Coworker.com, Air B&B to Uber.
Digital nomad 101
Jacob chose CTO as his base for the six week period he would spend in Cape Town. Why? Well, we’re open 24hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year… no really, we’re open to members all the time. His hours of work fall somewhere between South Africa and the United States and so you can imagine the phrase ‘burning the midnight oil’ coming to life here.
Coffee & Beer
In true digital nomad style, Jacob figured out the key essentials from how to make the coffee to where the beer fridge was, because these are important ingredients to a productive work day. On the 31st of December his company rolled out a huge software update and to ensure nothing went wrong, Jacob was in the office holding the forte! Hashtag commitment, right there.
All the feels
When the time came for Jacob to leave Cape Town, we said our good bye’s and off he went. What came next, well that just blew me away. I always ask members to write a review on their experience of CTO but given that we’re all busy people it doesn’t always happen, so when I got the Google notification that a new review had been left… well, rather than me tell you, here’s what Jacob said.
I’m a digital nomad, traveling the world, one country per month. I’ve seen my fair share of co-working spaces – the good, the bad, and the ugly. CTO is, hands down, my favorite co-working office at which I’ve had the pleasure of working. It’s just the perfect blend of business casual that lends itself to the most optimal work environment. As I write this review from a co-working office in Peru, that’s decent, but isn’t CTO!
Now you can understand why I say that I work with awesome people, all the time at CTO. Coworking and being the host of a space like CTO, is just the best job.
