How do plan works ?

Once you subscribed a plan, the badge at the upper right corner will indicate you how many days you have left in your plan. badge copass coworking plans

All you have left to do is to find the spaces you want to work from and go there. When in the space, go to the space’s page on Copass and click on the checkin button, just like before! If you still have some days left in your plan, you’ll see on the confirmation popup that the checkin is included in your plan.

Plan-Checkin

 

Confirm and Voilà! Now, if you go to your transaction & invoice sections, you’ll see that those checkins are marked as included in your plan.

Subscribing today, when would my plan start and end?

Copass memberships activate upon purchase. They are monthly recurring memberships and will renew each month on the same day of the month that you signed up. This means that if you subscribe to Copass on the 13th, your membership will renew on the 13th of each month.

What if I used all the days included in my membership but need a few more?

No worries ! When you’ve run out of days, you can still use your Copass account! You’ll automatically switch to the pay-per-use system. Extra days will be charged on your credit card until your plan renews.

Can I cancel or change plan anytime?

Yes! There is no long-term commitment for Copass. You are welcome to change or cancel your membership, as long as this is done at least one day before your cycle renews.

Plan-Editing

 

Will I be able to get into every space I want?

Absolutely. The best part about Copass: we’re in more than 300 cities in 75 different countries around the globe, and you are welcome to use your Copass in any of them! Your Copass membership simply does not cover accommodation costs for spaces offering it.

Can I go as much as I want in each space?

Yes. There is no limit to how many times you can go to one space. Many of our members have a favorite space where they spend most of their time. Do as you please!

How can I be sure I’ll get a desk in spaces I go?

Spaces can choose if a request is mandatory or not before coming. Most spaces do have the capacity to host you at anytime but we recommend that you respect the request policy of the space to get the best experience possible.

Request status

Some spaces do not always have staff members everyday and you want to be sure somebody will be there to host you. In many spaces though, you can simply drop in without prior notice and seat wherever you want.

I’am already a Copass member, how can I subscribe to a plan?

That’s pretty simple: just go to the Copass plans page or to your account section, select the plan you need and follow the steps.

We hope you’ll love those plans as much as we do. We want to hear from you! Let us know if you have any question or have an idea to make it even better. Your feedbacks make us better everyday. Keep on fueling us.

Happy Copassing.

Your Copass Experience!

cover-your-copass-experience

Hey you awesome Copasser – how’s it goin’ ?

We were wondering: after all this while – how have you been enjoying Copass, revamped? We’re curious to hear about your Copass experiences. To see what you think of the way we do things now.

In the past months, Copass entered a new age. We got a brand new look, with some fun new features, upgrades and updates galore. After launching publicly and many extensive post-developments, we’ve learned tons of great things from users. Now, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what works, of what needs fixing and of how we can improve – and we’ve acted on it. But there’s still always more to do!

Accounting for all of your advice and great feedback, we simplified how you use Copass, how you pay for it and lots of other goodies. In a process of continuous trial and experimentation – we want to hear from you to see how we can take it even further! Take a read and see what you think, what comments / questions do *you* have on these updates? :)

Copass Camp San Francisco: A Californian Adventure + GCUC

5879220466_21803f6d3b_b

May 4-9. We’re headed to California. We’re doing GCUC USA.

We’re playing a trampoline dodgeball tournament.

We’re going whitewater rafting.

Are you with us?

After years of making friends and connecting to communities in France, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Italy, and further afield – we’re finally making it out there (and we mean far out, man): the Wild, Wild West.

Well, maybe not the Wild West of those old western movies (in fact, for the landscape we’d bet that our Fuerteventura Adventure is much closer!) but instead, the dramatic cliffs, beautiful beaches and scenic mountains of beautiful California.

The Coworking Spain Conference 2015

Marc Hemisfèric, Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias – City of Arts and Sciences, Valencia (Spain), HDR The Hemisfèric was inaugurated in 1998 and was the first building in the City of Arts and Sciences to open its doors to the public. It is a spectacular construction designed by Santiago Calatrava, with an ovoid roof over 100 metres long that contains in its interior the large sphere that constitutes the projection room (cac.es). HDR from five bracketed exposures (1EV steps), on a tripod.

We’re very happy to be collaborating with Coworking Spain during their April 24-26 conference! We’ve been there each year since the very beginning, and it’s one of our favourite “meetings” around coworking in the world.

Coworking Spain is a strong force, and an prime example, for coworking as a movement in Europe and around the world. They are probably the best national network in Europe! These guys have built great momentum in Spain around the concept of coworking, and have led to the sharing of people and ideas between collaborative workspaces from Seville to Barcelona, Bilbao to Gibraltar.

The First “Copass Camp” – Lisbon

10609701_652028861561877_945052665359706774_n

The First “Copass Camp.” Now you’ve heard all about it. But what is it?

And more importantly… what’s the point?

We live in a world where all of us are inundated by invitations every day to workshops, meet-ups, seminars, conferences, networking events, barbecues, coffee sessions, lunch break-outs, brainstorming breakfasts, and more. There is no denying that these activities are great for bringing people together, for forming new ideas, for facilitating new connections and forging new relationships. But at Copass, we usually feel as if something is missing.

It’s the human element. Exchanging business cards with someone else creates a bond of “friendship” as much as becoming “friends” with someone on Facebook. In many cases, it is acknowledging another’s existence by the easiest and most base means possible – where your relationship is little more than codified in a thin paper card or a series of social media likes. Friendship, as much as Facebook leads us to believe it, is actually a much more intimate exercise, involving real people in real places sharing real experiences.

The first “Copass Camp” is a way of leveraging the power of technology to build communities that mean something to us, rather than to build communities that signify something to others.

The Ouisharefest seen by the Men in Blue

From the 5th to the 7th of May, Ouisharefest opened its doors for the festival’s second edition. In very little time, it’s become a world-renowned event, with more than 1,000 people from across the globe gathering in the beautiful cabaret sauvage in Paris for 3 days of talks, sharing and, most of all, fun.

“You know something is happening, but you don’t know what it is” Bob Dylan

Ouisharefest has a very special vibe. Something that is hard to put into words. It’s an important and “serious” event, as it connects the most relevant players in the collaborative economy, yet you never get the feeling that networking is the final goal. It just happens. A lot. But it happens in a very natural fashion. People start chatting while building an opensource beehive, while cooking together or while listening to live music. We become friends first, and then talk about what we do later on.

Ouisharefest is critical in supporting and amplifying the progress of the collaborative economy.

Eating our own dog food… and loving it

Back to work

When we started working on Copass, we did it because this is the way we wanted to work. We wanted to be able to work from anywhere and connect with the most interesting people in town, wherever we went. And that’s exactly what we’re doing right now. We’re eating our own dog food, so to speak, and we love it.

In the past month, we’ve worked from 10 different spaces, in 6 different cities (Berlin, Torino, Grenoble, Lyon, Paris and Lisbon) and 4 different countries. Building Copass while copassing around has been incredible. We discovered amazing spaces and met loads of great people, from a guy building open source meteorological stations to a group working on the optimization of energy consumption in smart cities, and even a few people who are making their own movies…
