In this episode of GatherGeeks, David Adler, C.E.O. of BizBash, and Beth Kormanik, editor in chief of BizBash, hear from Sacha ElWakeel, co-founder of Love Child Social House, a unique, 1960s-inspired coworking and social space in Toronto. ElWakeel shares why the venue is a place people can be all day—for work, play, speaker series, events, and more. The group also discusses what coworking spaces offer that other event venues might not, how brands and corporate planners are utilizing the spaces, and the business challenges involved in monetizing the concept.
