Not only is the space beautifully designed, Co-labs also offers their members the opportunity to work, learn, play, and upskill themselves.

Benjamin added, “Take our partnership with FutureLab for example, it’s a social learning platform that connects mentees to mentors. One of the main pain points for any entrepreneur nowadays is they may not have the support system, they might not have a full understanding of human resources or finance and the list goes on.”
