Three members of the ‘Norte Bloggers’ dropped by Calle Uno Co-working and collaborative space on a Saturday night to propose a collaborative event in Baguio to be held on April 2017.
We pitched that Calle Uno hold The Storytellers’s Summit Baguio leg to the owner, Ace Estrada and the idea is welcome to him.
According to their website, Calle Uno is “located in a bustling commercial-residential area in Quezon Hill, along Naguilian Road in Baguio City, our working space of 1800 square meters is spread over three storeys. The building is a grand old mansion lovingly restored to its former 1950s glory. Its best feature is the beautiful brick arches sitting at one end of the spacious grounds. It offers spaces and rooms designed to flexibly serve multiple purposes. Its ambiance ranges from the laid-back atmosphere of a cafe to the seriousness of purpose found at a campus library.”
I found my happy place in Calle Uno. The thing that I was dreaming to have since I was small. It was their walled bookshelf that I wanted to build in time for my precious books.
Calle Uno is more than just your ordinary co-working space. The team behind it through Ace Estrada and his family is revolutionising this industry in Baguio. The Baguio market is just ripe for this kind of business and I was impressed with its long-term goals.
Calle Uno is also a launchpad for food startups and one of their mini kitchens can be rented to launch your food business. What is more interesting is that food start-ups have a ready market such as the members and their patrons to test their minimum viable recipes.
Calle Uno also has uniquely designed food trucks from old Volkswagen cars locally called “PENDONG” where concessionaires can sell food, do cooking demos and soon launch an online TV cooking channel under the Calle Uno brand.
It is indeed exciting. And It is refreshing to see people finally getting IT, the technology and disrupting the co-working industry to stay on top of your game.
Calle Uno aims to build a community of tech start-ups, budding food and tech entrepreneurs, artists, online professionals, virtual workers and what nots.
Visit them and find out how they can help you build your career and your dreams.
I was instantly awarded a membership by the owner, Ace Estrada who happens to be my province mate.
