Join the likes of Decathlon and Procter & Gamble and open a Workero developed co-creation ecosystem space
No company can do it all alone
Whether it is about learning from best industry practices, Linking with supplier (skills) or developing/inventing the next product/service update, there are always more smart people that do NOT work for your company, than that you can ever hire. On top of that, the speed of change is so high that every company has to make choices around what their internal core expertise has to be and where the outside world can help.
Be the ANCHOR in your ecosystem
The speed at which technological innovation and development is taking place is increasing constantly. Meanwhile, the largest challenge we face as society today - think, global warming and water shortages - are ones companies can’t solve alone anymore. By working in ecosystems anchored by the most pro-active players, companies can thrive together.
Bringing everyone to the table (not necessarily yours)
Strong connections come from truly working and being together in the same space for several hours per day or week, not just for a few hours in sporadic meetings or video conferences. However, although being open and connected has its benefits, it is important to do this securely, by still keeping certain physical and security barriers in place, creating ‘internal’ and ‘external’ spaces. Within Workero we have a lot of experience in this field, and often, we find that companies are already taking more risks today than they would in an organised co-creation space set up by us. Allow us to take care of this concern for you, leaving you to focus on the matter at hand: innovating and collaborating.
Leverage the community
Great eco-systems go across all players within an industry, bringing together academic institutions doing research in areas relevant to your business, innovative startups, think tanks, other corporates, interest groups etc. By uniting these in your co-creation space regularly, you can build a sense of community and belonging, in turn stimulating collaboration. This forum also allows you to share the biggest challenges your company faces, and invite a broad-thinking community to suggest ideas, connections and solutions to help you speed up your innovation process.
Clients such as Procter & Gamble, Decathlon and many more…

We have developed the digital tools and technology
From booking and processing payments through to security clearances and reviews - we will take care of the business side of things.
We provide the physical know-how
This is part of our core DNA – a true expertise in setting up a Workero Co-creation physical space. Did we already tell you that our roots are in the largest Rental Office Space provider in Belgium, so trust us on this one.
Our digital tools also facilitate clear communication. Whether you are looking for a private space to discuss internal projects, or you are wanting to reach out to a larger community to create a digital ecosystem relevant to your business’ needs, we can provide an online space for you.
Keep focussed - Enabling you to keep focussed on what you do best
Nobody knows your business and Innovation processes like you do. Our target is to NOT get involved with these (unless requested), but rather allow you to outsource most of the other tasks that come from setting up a Co-Creation space.
Hence you focus on what you do best, we focus on what we do best, the fastest and least disruptive way towards having a world class co-creation space & community – digital and physically.
Get the word out!
The more you are willing to share with the outside world – in terms of needs and opportunities that you see, the more that “outsiders”” can help you – from Academic parties through to disruptive start-up’s, and creative companies or simply organisations that already have solved your challenge but for a different industry/application – its amazing how often the wheel still gets reinvented. So let us know what you would like to engage on, and we help you get that word out to the (innovative) world!
