We’re business owners too. And we understand the need for a productive work space for the rise of freelancers, entrepreneurs and start-ups in Honolulu.
So we created, KouWork.
KouWork is collaborative space that’s transforming co-working in Honolulu. No more coffee shop-hopping, searching for seats and sockets, and dealing with distractions. Just a safe, inspiring space to come together, create and make amazing things happen.
Naming a business isn’t easy – just ask anyone who’s tried. After finding a variety of perfect names (that were already taken), one of our founders thought of the Hawaiian word, “kou.”
Kou is an old name for Honolulu. “Hui aka nā maka i kou,” means, “The eyes (friends) will meet at Kou.” Kou is also a shady tree that’s a favorite of wood workers who polish its rough bark into a glass-like shine. Finally, kou simply means “your.” So KouWork literally means, “Your work.” With that, KouWork was born.
A communal workplace to come together, work smarter and let your big ideas flourish. That’s what KouWork means to us. Find out what KouWork means to you.
