who we are the shedco

Would you like to work in a place where you feel special?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this is the coworkingspace for you.

Behind it we are Carlos, Gonzalo, Kepa, Manuel and Martina. Our aim is to accompany you on your professional journey, doing everything possible to make your working days run smoothly, always with a smile and the warmest personal treatment.

Here you will not find an intern to assist you. We, the promoters of this space, are the same people who are there for you and who support you in your day-to-day work. We understand the difficult and at the same time stimulating world of entrepreneurship, and we want to accompany you in your success.

We theshed - Team

Now, we want to be honest. The Shed Co is not for everyone who is looking for a coworkingspace.

 

If what you want is a coworking space where you are offered every day social events, craft beer and a soundtrack in the bathroom, with the result of having a good time probably at the expense of your productivity, this is not your place. We were born before coworking became an industry, before the advent of real estate and multinationals transformed coworking spaces into impersonal, hyper-luxury offices.

Of course they have their advantages, but we assure you that in these centres you will not be able to go and have a coffee with their founders and promoters, sharing knowledge and concerns.

 

The Shed Co is not your place either if you are lost with your business and what you want is a miraculous panacea with which to find thousands of clients. We don't have a magic lamp to multiply clients and turnover, but what we can offer you is a professional environment, in a prestigious neighbourhood, where you feel supported and have all the facilities to be more productive.

How it all began

We theshed with the beginnings
We theshed with the beginnings

Back in 2012, on a terrace in the traditional Chamberí neighbourhood, we wondered what we could do with a 200 m2 office space we had at our disposal.

 

Our dear architect Elena Gonzalez Torres (who eventually designed the space) told us about setting up a coworking space . "As what?" we asked in amazement. When she explained this new model of workspace to us, it seemed like a somewhat peregrine idea, but the concept we created in our heads resonated and excited us. That's how, more than 9 years ago, The Shed Coworking was born.

 

The beginnings were hard, we found it difficult to explain this new concept, too modern at the time for the privileged area in which we settled. In the eyes of our neighbours we were more like a hippie commune with a Nordic style. Even our closest friends doubted that anyone would want to pay to work here.

 

But we strongly believed in what we were doing. And today we can proudly say that we were one of the first spaces to open (and survive) in Madrid, and that we have created a workspace model where our clients only take care of their business; we take care of everything else.

Our name: The Shed Co

When the "Great Recession" hit the US and Canada, small prefabricatedsheds began to proliferate in the backyards of homes. These sheds were laboratories or offices of professionals who had chosen to turn a problem into an opportunity and used these spaces to mature their projects.

 

That is why we have not only chosen the booth as one of the essential elements of our image, but we have also acquired one to install in our offices (do you know where?).

 

The other reason for the name is that shed also means " shedding ", the process of renewing the antlers of one of the most majestic and haughty of animals: the deer. Unlike the antlers of other species, the antlers of deer fall off each year to be replaced by new ones and grow in size and ramifications according to age, diet and social status.

 

Like deer, we human beings have the capacity to remake ourselves. Personal and professional transformation is a basic necessity in this era of great change. Hence the name and the other essential element of our logo: the skeleton of a deer.
