(to know why we called tuesday “tuesday” in the first place, skip to the bottom)
Things are afoot! Corona or no corona, the things, they just don’t do the stopping and tuesday coworking, as a thing, is in line for a change-up. The brand, the name “tuesday coworking”, will be continuing as is. However, the business partnership that oversaw tuesday’s creation back in 2016, will soon be redrawn and in that process, we’ll be taking our next step to becoming a fully-fledged, no-flies-on-us, deadly serious company company-style company. That’s right, we’re in the process of becoming a Limited (Ltd. or “GmbH”, if you feel like flexing your language brainses)!
“So… tuesday coworking Ltd., right?”, says you. “Not quite”, says I. At the beginning, we were slightly hamstrung by our finances. The only things we could offer with our bootstrapped budgeting were desks, chairs, coffee and a smile. While there was definitely a community, we lacked the technology and amenities to really offer something above and beyond. Over the years, however, we slowly but surely managed to expand our spaces so we could involve our coworkers’ more in the decision-making processes and implement what they requested for their spaces (hence the nap room as voted for by tuesday’s members). This slow progression meant we were able to maintain healthy finances, while providing new features and improvements on a near-to-monthly basis. Over time, we were able to offer so much more than just comfortable chairs and sturdy tables.
That’s why (coinciding with tuesday’s fourth birthday (and special offer)) we’re calling our new parent company: “MoreThanADesk GmbH“. We feel it sums up exactly where we are, what we stand for, and, as a name, it’s probably less confusing than “tuesday” 😉
“And what’s so MoreThanADesky about tuesday“, you ask?
“I’m glad you asked!”, I reply:

“Ok, that all checks out… but you’re still called “tuesday coworking”?”
Yes, our brand name is “tuesday coworking” and will remain so until such a time as we get bored of explaining how we’re actually open every day of the week, which brings us nicely to…
….why is tuesday called tuesday in the first place?
Things are afoot(ball)! Indeed, much of the things we love are football-related, like the first ever Coworking Space Football Five-A-Side Tournament we organised back in 2018. Much of this stems from the founder, John’s, love of football, which he always played with his team, Hasenheide Hotspurs, you guessed it, on Tuesdays!
That’s one half of the story. The other half is that Tuesday is considered to be the most productive day of the week. Ergo, when you come to tuesday, then everyday is like a Tuesday (in productivity terms). Simples!
