Our Journey

Founded in 2018, we’ve crossed a fair few things off our bucket list over the last few years here at Keep Co. Scroll down to learn about where we began, what we did along the way and how things turned out.

Our founders joined forces

Both on a mission to create a community-centric and creatively inspiring coworking space at the same time and in the same place, Keep Co co-founders Anna and Korske were introduced by mutual friends.

Jul 2018

The first members

Our 12 original founding members gathered at the pub to chat all things coworking - what they needed, what they wanted, what they were missing and how we could make it happen.

SEP 2018

NewActon Pop-Up

Funded by the City Grants Program, Keep Co trialled its first ever coworking space in the vibrant NewActon precinct with 8 desks, 4 weeks of workshops, a temporary kitchen and a pop-up shop of local goodies.

Dairy Road begins

We opened the doors to our first Dairy Road workspace - a converted 280sqm blank canvas warehouse with towering white walls, beautiful natural light and loads of potential. 22 desks, vintage furniture, a very small kitchenette, and loads of plants.

Planning for Stage 2

Needing more room to grow, we began planning our expansion in to a new warehouse conversion in Building 3.3 Dairy Road with the support and guidance of Molonglo and the award-winning design expertise of Craig Tan Architects.

Partnership with Ninetwofive Interiors

We joined forces with the amazing team at Ninetwofive Interiors to create a unique hybrid showroom and workspace arrangement – their furniture on display and in use within our coworking space.

COVID-19 begins

The world is forced in to lockdown as we battle an unprecedented global crisis. Amidst the chaos of cancelled projects and lost work, our community rallies together for digital coworking, catchups on Zoom and client referrals.

Mar 2020

Construction begins

Against all odds, we carry on with our plans for Keep Co 2.0. Framework is going up and facilities are being laid across our new 650sqm workspace in Building 3.3 Dairy Road.

Oct 2020

Keep Co 2.0 opens

Better late than never! We finally open the doors to our dream workspace: 42 desks, 8 offices, 5 meeting spaces sitting amongst 650sqm of beautifully and carefully designed coworking space with some incredible neighbours to boot.

Our Mission

At Keep Co, our purpose is to form a purposeful, creative community that inspires positive social impact and supports new and exciting ideas.

We believe in creating a sense of belonging. Connections, not transactions, make for lasting and impactful relationships in work and play – and they lay the foundations for a purposeful community (and world!) that gets stuff done.

Our Values

Keep Co is undeniably for-purpose and proud. Our four core values help us stay motivated, inspired and accountable as our community grows and we adapt and respond to the way we work and live.

Impact

We are change makers that want to make an impact and inspire others to do the same. We want to help people thrive in their passions and ignite positive social change in their community.

Sustainability

We believe in taking care of our environment, our people and our community. We strive to create positive impact for our collective future.

Service

We believe in building genuine relationships that support, encourage and inspire stronger communities. We stand for and with our community to do great things.

Sharing

We encourage open sharing of ideas and knowledge. We believe in the value of individuals sharing their skills without reservation to create better solutions and stronger communities.
