Frequently Asked Questions

How fast is your internet?

Fast. Very fast. Good connectivity and video/voice conferencing is critical to all our businesses. This is rather difficult to find in [South] Africa. We use the fastest ISP in Africa (Vanilla), with very good peering to the UK+USA. Here's an actual Speedtest from our office.

Do you limit internet usage?

Our internet is super fast, but it is capped, so we abide by a 'no-torrenting' honour system. Exceeding our cap would mean throttling for the rest of the month. Stuart would have to stream his Kardashian videos at 240p. You don’t want that, and neither do we.

How big are the desks?

We actually put some thought & effort into this problem. Our desks are wide and deep enough so that you won’t be shoulder-to-shoulder with your neighbour, nor playing footsies with the person opposite you. We intentionally don’t pack you in like sardines.

Will I die from dehydration?

No. Every day Mary puts a bottle of chilled filtered water on your desk, in the hope you won’t perish at your keyboard.

What kind of people/teams share the space?

We have a great mix of tech companies, startups, freelancers, creatives, coders and designers sharing an open space. What we don’t have are loud salespeople on the phone all day.

What are the noise levels like?

With mostly creatives & knowledge workers, we have very manageable noise levels. We’ve settled on a semi-open-plan layout which gives you some privacy & keeps the noise in check.

Do you have parking?

There’s no more in-building parking available at the moment. Fortunately there is 'free' on-street parking nearby. Well it’s free if you dodge the self-appointed 'car guards'.

Do I need to sign a long term contract?

No, we don't ask you to sign a long-term contract. We simply invoice you monthly, in advance. We do ask you keep us up to date with your plans, as this helps us work out the desk allocations.

Can I pay with PayPal.


Can I pay with BitCoin.


Can I pay with DogeCoin.


Can I come and check out the space before I apply?
