October 22, 2020 @ 11:00 - 14:00 UTC+0


CCCSEE is the annual gathering of brightest individuals, businesses and ideas in the Coworking & Coliving ecosystem in the region.

We started to educate and develop a strong network of key players in creative industries in the SEE in Belgrade last October, support and aid the entrepreneurial model for local economies through a series of connections and business opportunities and spread the idea of a more closely connected Balkan region.

Below is the recording of the live stream from the event.


How have our local communities and where we live change because of COVID?


How do freelancers and coworking move forward?

> What is the future of work now?



COVID-19 showed us that less is more.

Kofi Oppong (UK)

Although Kofi was homeless at the age of 17, he went on to have a successful career, at first as a JD sports manager and later a Nike town product manager.

With the knowledge gained and 10 Years working for Nike, Kofi decided to use his experience to give back to the community.

He went on to set up Circle Sports in Westminster & Kingsland High road, an independent sports store that has put 70 N.E.E.T.S (Not In Education Employment or Training) back into long-term employment since opening in 2010. However, Kofi felt that the education system was not as transparent and certain demographics struggle to have access to any information.

From this, he decided to create Urban MBA in 2014 which he describes as the University for Street Entrepreneurs!

Urban MBA empowers 16-25-year-old to start up their own business.

So far within a five-year period, Urban MBA has cultivated over 60 young entrepreneurs, helping them gain over £200,000 in funding to grow their business.

Over 200 have participated in either 6 week or 12-week enterprise programs to help them gain further entrepreneurship knowledge. Urban MBA was created by Kofi to address the 21st-century workforce…
