Indonesian co-working and co-living chain Freeware Spaces today announced its rebrand to wellspaces Group, effective January 1, 2019.
With the rebrand, the company also announced its new set of brands in its portfolio:
workwell (co-working space and serviced office)
wellspaces Group currently runs four co-working and serviced office facilities with a plan to launch 10 more in 2019. The company works with building or space owner to manage the coworking facilities. Indonesian startups that had begun its operations at workwell facilities include Bukalapak, Urbanesia, Sayurbox, Ralali, eFishery, and Kumparan.
dwell (co-living houses)
Co-living will be one of the company’s main focus in the coming years; it has teamed up with a team of hospitality industry experts to transform Indonesia’s existing concept of rented rooms.
wellkitchen (co-kitchen and food market)
Targeted at F&B startups, the facility aims to connect founders with potential customers, suppliers, vendors, and other parties to collaborate with and help their business grow.
wellsociety (members identity and loyalty rewards programme
In addition to loyalty rewards programme, wellsociety also includes a mobile platform to connect members with each other, give access to wellspaces’s facilities and services, and customer relations management.
In an official statement, wellspaces Group CMO and Co-Founder Fritz Aradhana Dylan Prabawa explained that the company does not want to limit itself into one type of portfolio.
“We see a great opportunity of spaces in Jakarta alone with low to no occupancy to be altered into a revenue stream,” he said.
Prabawa also stated that the rebranding process began with his appointment into the company six months ago.
wellspaces started out in 2012 as Freeware Spaces. One of the earliest co-working spaces in the country, the company began by running a facility in Antasari, South Jakarta, with an oil and gas company as its backer.
The facility serves as an incubator for early stages startups, providing free work space for these companies.
