Our Story (so far)
In 2020, the future of work changed, forever. We were all quickly fed up of hearing “unprecedented” and “lockdown”, but then came a new appreciation of flexible, remote working. Teams had to work from home and, guess what, businesses not only survived but teams thrived. The traditional 9-5 office day has changed and we’re on a mission to connect remote work forces and collaborators back together.
Hello Swurf! – the new work surfing platform.
We’re a small team with heaps of tech and hospitality experience. We’ve brought together our collective experience to provide a venue sourcing app for remote workers looking for the perfect space to catch-up with teammates, clients or friends over a quick coffee, or escape the chaos of the kitchen. Our starting place is our home city of Edinburgh. We’ve got a great network of hospitality contacts in the city and we’re recruiting some of the most amazing venues for Swurfers to browse, book and use as work spaces when they want and how they want. It’s our mission to allow everyone to “work freely”.
We’re at the start of our journey to bring Swurfers and Hosts together and help people to reconnect and collaborate again. And once we’ve conquered Edinburgh, we have big plans to take Swurf to other cities, to build a community of Swurfers that network together and allow everyone who wants to, to work freely.
Are you ready to Swurf?
Connecting a community of remote workers
You don’t need an office to do your best work. When it comes down to it, you know how you work best. So you should have the fexibility to work in the place that’s right for you. Being able to work remotely yet still connect with others. Creating the space that supports your lifestyle and well-being.
Freedom & Flexibility
Let’s face it, life’s tough enough so let's try and keep work simple. Swurf connects people who want to work remotely with spaces that welcome them to do just that. Allowing people to work, to connect or to collaborate. No booking needed (although we can help with that too)
No Pressure. No Commitment. Your Work – Your Way.
To work from various places other than a home or an organisation’s usual place of business.
A Swurf Host is...
is already a friend
is happy to see you
will always be kind
will make you feel at home
to let you work freely
Not every venue has what it takes to be a Swurf Host. Nope. That's why we've created a Manifesto that ensures all of our Hosts support the freedom and flexibility you need. Supporting you to work where you work best.
