Another opportunity to receive Business Scholarship at Coworking Space

Meraki Workspace opened application for its Asteri Scholarship again.

Asteri is a 3-month hot-desking scholarship for an upcoming business star in the community.

Having been open for a year now, Meraki is a shared office space providing permanent, designated desks, hot-desking options as well as meeting spaces.

Susanne Lorenz, co-director of Meraki says, ‘”Our first round scholarship has been very successful. It had been received by Sharonn Pirie who runs FuturesNZ.com. A carreer and employment service business, working mainly with teenagers in the Cambridge community. After completing her scholarship, Sharonn stayed on as a hot-desking member as she knows it works very well for her.”

This scholarship is intended for a person who would greatly benefit from being able to use the Meraki space but wouldn’t be able to without the scholarship. At the space, the recipient will be able to use as their office, with 24 hour access, 7 days a week, unlimited, high-speed internet, office equipment and kitchen facilities as well as designated spaces to meet with clients and connect with other likeminded business people.

The scholarship is an application-based program awarded to one person for three months at a time.

This round of the scholarship is also a celebration of the first birthday of Meraki Workspace. Lorenz and her business partner Emma Emery-Sinclair want the workspace to be used by different organisations, businesses and individuals alike and want to create opportunities for everyone to benefit from it.

How to apply for the scholarship

Applications can be completed and submitted online at www.merakiworksapce.co.nz and are open from the 5th February – 16th February 12pm.

The recipient will be announced Monday 19th February 12pm via email and Facebook.

Business Scholarship Launches on International Coworking Day

Meraki Workspace has launched The Asteri Scholarship - a 3-month hot-desking scholarship for a budding business star in the community.

Opened in 2017, Meraki is a shared office space providing permanent, designated desks, hot-desking options and meeting spaces.

Susanne Lorenz, co-director of Meraki says, ‘We set up the workspace to support the local business community by creating a place to work from, meet clients and other like-minded business people. We also have a high emphasis on supporting the wider Cambridge community.”

This scholarship is intended for a person who would greatly benefit from being able to use the Meraki space but wouldn’t be able to without the scholarship. At the space, the recipient would be able to use as their office, with 24 hour access, 7 days a week, unlimited, high-speed internet, office equipment and kitchen facilities as well as designated spaces to meet with clients and connect with other likeminded business people.

The scholarship is an application-based program awarded to one person for three months at a time.

The launch coincides with International Coworking Day, which is celebrated on 9 August to recognise the merits of coworking. Coworking has become a worldwide trend over the last couple of decades with an estimated 1 million people working out of coworking spaces in 2017.

Co-founder Emma Sinclair, has been a local business owner in Cambridge for over four years, and can clearly identify the benefits of this concept. “For me, coworking ticks so many boxes for an entrepreneur in the start-up phase – it’s more than just a physical space, it’s a small village of likeminded people – a network of support and expertise.”

How to apply for the scholarship

Applications can be completed and submitted online at www.merakiworkspace.co.nz and are open from the 14th - 31st August.
