Episode 28: Coworking Services – Deskpass
Deskpass provides a monthly “subscription” to local coworking spaces. Launched in 2016, Deskpass now offers 70 workspaces between it’s Chicago and Los Angeles network. I speak with founder, Sam Rosen about the platform, model and his plans for the future of coworking.
About Sam Rosen
By the age of five, Sam Rosen was most likely to be found behind his Mac trying to get all those ideas out of his head and into the world.
Born and raised in Chicago, he’s spent the better part of the last decade starting businesses all centered around people and design. Formally trained as a designer, these days he spends more time at the business end of things. He prides himself on a keen ability to connect great people with lovely ideas, spaces and other great people all with the goal of making meaningful work and hopefully making the world a better place along the way.
