Three entrepreneurs, KC, Kent, and Mason were running a homestay business at the same time they were studying at the local University.

The choices available? Cafes, libraries, homes and coworking spaces, but each had limitations such as the surrounding noise, lack of flexibility to have group meetings, and accessibility from their own neighborhoods.
While seeking a good workspace, they were inspired by the concept of “study rooms” and “shared spaces” which is popular in South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore.
