Co-Living or a “Sandpit” for Future Entrepreneurs. First Experience from Poland.


Nowadays, the Western world seems saturated with the myriad of enhancements for entrepreneurship development. Also, in Eastern European countries we observe a growing number of initiatives at different organizational levels, aiming at accompanying potential future entrepreneurs in their efforts. Meanwhile, there is one novelty, never before offered on the Polish market – the first co- -living space, launched in Gdañsk. Therefore, this article aims at presenting the idea of 4COs (co-living, co-working, co-habitation, co-development) initiated by a group of young social entrepreneurs from the Tricity as “Clipster” at the end of 2015. For better understanding of the novelty of this venture on the Polish market, the author analyzes similar initiatives worldwide. This paper is also an attempt to assess the challenges and results of this initiative thanks to the qualitative research methods – structured interviews with its first participants and with its leaders. Additionally, the author suggests some improvements and possible future developments of this initiative.
