Avila Spaces, the leading business center for innovation in the flexible workspace market in Portugal, was granted the "Best Coworking Space” award at the South Europe Startup Awards (SESA 2019). This competition is part of the Global Startup Awards and aims to recognize the best organizations in the global startup ecosystem.
This is the second award Avila Spaces has received within a few months: Avila had already won the SESA for Best Coworking Space in Portugal. Avila Spaces was also elected the best coworking space by the users of the site Coworker.com, in December. Now it is Avila’s turn to be awarded as the best coworking space in southern Europe, leaving behind the regional winners of France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Cyprus and Spain. The two phases of the competition were based on: the evaluation of an independent jury, made up of members from several nationalities, and an online public voting system.
The Best Coworking Space award at the South Europe Startup Awards recognises Avila Spaces' leadership in the market for flexible and shared workspaces, its capacity to provide a culture and an environment that stimulates innovation as well as its services and resources made available to fast-growing technology startups.
"After a continuous investment in the innovation of the experience we provide and all the national and international acknowledgements that we are very proud of, we rounded off a hugely successful year with the Best Coworking Space in Portugal at the SESA Awards, and we are starting 2020 in the best possible way. More important than the international recognition, this award means a distinction for Portugal, which again ensures that we are at the forefront of the flexible workspaces in both Europe and the World", said Carlos Gonçalves, CEO of Avila Spaces.
The official award cerenomy SESA 2019 was scheduled for February 28th in Turin, but it was cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in northern Italy. The event was rescheduled for March 13th which might be broadcasted live on the Internet.
