Cape Town, 22nd July 2021– AfricaWorks – a leading pan-African coworking company with a presence in 8 cities across the Continent – announces today that Carry1st, Africa’s leading publisher of social games and interactive content will establish its game development hub at the AfricaWorks branch in Cape Town, South Africa.

AfricaWorks Cape Town is conveniently located in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD. The space offers a flexible and collaborative workspace for Multinationals, start-ups, SMEs, remote teams, and freelancers. AfricaWorks Cape Town covers 2,000 sqm of shared spaces, communal areas, 231 private offices, lounges, 4 meeting rooms, and event space. On-site amenities include a cafe, ample parking spaces, Wi-Fi, 24-hour access, and an uninterrupted power supply. This is the perfect space for people who lead a busy life and need a central place to conduct business. The location is a key reason behind Carry1st’s decision to set up their game development hub at AfricaWorks Cape Town.

AfricaWorks has experienced record growth since its launch in 2019: from 1 single coworking space, the Company has expanded into 10 spaces in 8 cities across the Continent, with companies like L’Oreal, Universal Music, Toyota, Glovo, etc. as its members. The increasing demand for good quality coworking spaces from Multinationals, SMEs, and startups in the African Market has been instrumental to the growth of AfricaWorks. These entities rationalize their operational cost through the AfricaWorks turnkey system of professional corporate flex offices that empowers companies to accelerate business opportunities and drive innovation.
