If an Inploy freelancer likes their CO-55 experience, they'll take a 10% discount on all packages.
Due to routine, bureaucracy, and underappreciation, many employees around the world have drifted away from corporate life and turned to freelancing. The case is the same in Cairo, if not more intense; especially after the recent financial crisis and continuous budget deficits and downsizing.
Nestled at the bustling intersection between Heliopolis and Nasr City, CO-55, Egypt’s state-of-the-art co-working space, is joining hands with Inploy, a platform connecting freelancers with clients. The partnership entails that freelancers on Inploy’s platform would have exclusive access to 20 private offices that the 1,200-square-metre co-working space houses. So far, CO-55 shelters a handful of startups which include Lemonspaces, Glee, and Everest Minds. Sizes of the offices range from 10 to 30 squared metres, with a corresponding set of storage cabinets complimented with 20 lockers.
When it's not bustling with events, the shared space between the "willpower" and "collaborate" walls is usually filled with hot desks waiting to be occupied with solo entrepreneurs and freelancers who grew sick of waiting on the WiFi to connect at coffee shops while spending their savings on cappuccinos.

You can find CO-55 at 55 Makram Ebeid St. Nasr City, Cairo.
