The Green Room was started by a few surfers with a love for the waves of JBay. The project sets out to prove that a vibrant co-working community can make a big difference to a small town. We have an idea that interesting things happen when diverse skills and experiences from all over the world come together under one roof.
We are entrepreneurs, digital nomads or just people who prefer to get out of the house to work in an inspiring environment. Some of us are travellers, some of us are from here. We're in JBay because we all share a common mindset that a good balance between work, nature and outdoor activities is a healthy way to live.
The Green Room team provides the office infrastructure and necessities at the space, but we also lean on members to bring their ideas and good vibes. This is a community project! All rental contributions we receive from members go directly back into improving the space and hopefully, over time, making JBay a better place to live, work and visit!
We are not a traditional ‘serviced office’ or ‘business center’... We look after the building and maintenance, handle general cleanliness, keep the coffee flowing and ensure abundant, fast Wi-Fi. Many other standard office functions are “self-service”.
Sometimes tolerance is also required, for example putting up with the occasional wet, salty footprints through the front door! Try it! Perhaps you will have an interesting encounter in the process.
Sharing is more fun! We share everything. As such, we are best suited to curious, open-minded folk who are OK to work around interesting strangers.
Over time, we hope everyone can contribute to make the space better with ideas, initiatives and general good vibes!
Sharing and collaborating with other members is what will make the space fly!
