The space you are about to discover today is one of the very first coworking spaces we met when our journey around the world began. There is an “imperfectly” written article on our blog, dated 2016, which we called “Crushing on Apocapoc”, and I can say for sure that this title is still accurate 7 years later.

Throughout the years, we’ve loved following Val, Sebastien, and Fabien grow in their coworking journey, one that has always revolved around sustainability. Convinced that there are many ways we can build a better future for all, the trio has used coworking and its model to bring together a resilient community.

Beyond everything, their focus, their exemplarity, and their beautiful ways of doing business with a purpose have been a constant source of inspiration for our team.

Whether you know a lot or not much about how sustainability can be approached at work, you are about to gift yourself a 5 minutes mastermind session on the topic.

Welcome to Barcelona, Welcome to Nest City Lab!
