This project has not been successfully funded. Sorry!

Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Short Summary

Coworking is self-directed, collaborative, flexible work style that is based on mutual trust and the sharing of common core objectives in the same work space. The members of Skylight Coworking Space will find multiple opportunities for collaboration. We will play the role of an animator/incubator to make sure that each of our clients meet the right people in order to start and to ensure the sustainability of their businesses. With our Coworking Space, there are no limit for opportunities. These will increase obviously their well-being by working in a collaborative atmosphere and accumulate, through cooperation not competition, greater economic, social and cultural capitol more so than through that which is possible in an isolated form of work. A great quote captures the essence of what we hope to provide our clients with: “when great people are in a single room, great things can happen.” Furthermore, Skylight will also provide the necessary workshops and trainings (on entrepreneurship, management, leadership, etc…) for its members as it will ensure also the marketing of their startups through events organized by Skylight like TEDx, BIL. So this Coworking Space will play the role of an incubator in Monastir and eventually in Tunisia and the MENA region. 



What We Need & What You Get
We estimate the initial costs of Skylight Coworking Space to be 10910,85$. They will be covered by a grant of 750-1000$ from Ashoka-UCONN, 1000$ from the foundation “Tounes Ta3mel”, and the rest of the costs I am counting on you and on some fundraisers here in Monastir. 


These are the costs:

  • Space rent for Skylight Coworking Space (4500$ for the first 6 months)
  • Buying desks (1820.35$)
  • Design (1290.23$)
  • Computers (1350.42$)
  • Internet Connections (350$)
  • Couch (154$)
  • Books (245.2$)
  • Equipments for leardeship and team building workshops (1200.65$)

Through memberships, we hope to start with a revenue of 500$/month to improve the quality of the project and its services, and reach 1500$/month within 3 years. 

The Impact
In the first year of operation, the success of Skylight Coworking Space depends essentially on two factors: leading a successful marketing campaign and organizing several TEDx events to spread a new spirit of creativity, collaboration and social entrepreneurship. And helping initiate at least 10 Startups in Skylight in its first five years. In 10 years, we aim open another Coworking Space in the government next Monastir, Sousse, the second biggest city in Tunisia, and so we believe the impact of Skylight on economy will considerably raise, reaching an objective of 3-4 startups per year.

Other Ways You Can Help

If you cannot help me with funding that is totally okey. You can help me instead enlarge my network. The Coworking culture is still new for Tunisians, and so I would really appreciate it if you can help me reach Coworking Spaces all over the world (especially in the US, Europe and MENA region) for Cooperations.
