Co-working has become more popular in Cebu. A few years ago, I used to work in Cebu’s first co-working space, Location 63, which was owned by Chris Ducker, an international blogger and entrepreneur. Back then, the term co-working was such an alien term. As someone who has worked with different foreign start-ups, the importance of co-working cannot be denied. For start-ups and freelancers that want to grow, it is important to be part of a like minded community that shares different expertise, ideas, and skills.
My favorite thing about co-working spaces is it provides a platform for creative minds to get together – from podcasters, web developers, web marketers, writers, digital entrepreneurs, marketing experts, etc. There is so much you can learn from these digital nomads.
What are the co-working spaces in Cebu?
Apart from being a co-working space, A Space Cebu is considered to be a true creative hub for Cebu. They are a known venue for events that showcase music, art, and creative talent. For the artists and the aspiring ones, this is home.

The Tide has long been a popular co-working space. In fact, there was a time The Tide used to be the only one I could recommend. Located in the city’s tech hub, IT Park, no wonder it has become a popular choice for many.

For something lighter on the wallet, IndustriRoom deserves a good look. Spacious with elegant interiors, it is also promoted as a student lounge due to its proximity to universities.

From the name itself, you can already see the word “cafe” and not co-working space. However, it is not your ordinary café. It is a co-working café! Yes, you heard that right – a co-working café. Let’s admit it, many of us end up working in cafes too. A cafe that embraces the co-working ethos sounds pretty good to me!
