We want to creat a coffeeshop for young freelancer journalists in Vienna. A place to share, network, work and learn. We help young freelancer journalists to find their way in the branch and form a network with other freelancer journalists. In addition to cake and coffee, there will be a wide range of info material and workshops on a variety of topics - from tips on finances to writing workshops.
🏋️♂️Motivation - WHY we’re doing this
As young journalists, we know the feeling of working alone - without colleagues to brainstorm or exchange experiences with. We want to change that and offer all journalists a place for exchange and further education. As a self-employed journalist, you often face bureaucratic challenges and find little information and contact points. Therefore, we would like to offer a range of courses, for example on finances and taxes, but also on how to improve your writing skills.
🧑💻Persona - WHO we’re serving

John (29) is a journalist from Austria who is already in the business. He doesn't want to work alone at home, so he is searching for a co-working space.

However, the structures of the association are a bit entrenched and there is an annual membership fee. That means who is not a member, has no access to the services and the community. And personal, non-binding meetings, as they would be possible in our coffee shop, do not exist either.
