➡️ A little refresher
Who’s behind the featured space?
Meet Edu and Jon, the co/founders of Sun and Co.
When asked how they met, Jon told us:
“This house was refurbished in 2013, by that time Edu was by himself and created a hostel. The hostel was doing really well in the summer but not that great in the winter. He saw an opportunity to use this house in the lower season. I met him in the Spanish Coworking Conference in Valencia* and when he told me about his idea I really liked it and decided to join forces to make it happen.”
*The Spanish Coworking Conference is returning this year! If you are interested in joining the event (which is both in Spanish and English), book your ticket here and use the code CWSC_Loves_Coworkies at checkout for a 40 euros discount on your ticket!
