It is a new day for those in Chiang Mai, Thailand with the opening of co-working space, Pun Space. Founded by a married couple, Vichaya and Euam Sirisanthana, who birthed the idea after visiting Hubba last November. They took about a month to decide on whether they want to go ahead with it and have been planning ever since. The similar co-working space in Bangkok has partnered Pun Space, and will be using this opportunity to expand and forge a community of tech talents in Chiang Mai.
Vichaya told us that Chiang Mai is a tranquil place where there are many software developers and creative designers who would work in coffee shops or from home. Although the two founders are not quite sure what the demand is like, they voiced that they would love to give it a try and see just how it will work out.
Only two minutes from the Nimman area, the co-working space, about 200 square metres, boasts 34 seats, a meeting room with a big-screen television, private offices, booths for audio and video conferences, showers and an outdoor working space. The office opens seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m..
Pun, in Thai, means “share,” and the two co-founders plan to offer free services to everyone during the month of March, as well as to host Chiang Mai Jelly Week from the 11th to 15th of March. Vichaya shared that Pun Space users can expect a comfortable and quiet environment to work and find a great community to be a part of.
