This month we chat with Steve Munroe, who after living in Bali, Indonesia, for years fulfilled a need in the community by opening Hubud, one of Bali’s first coworking spaces.

At the time of Hubud’s launch, coworking spaces were a foreign language in Bali, though now, 5 years later, Hubud serves as a hub for transient and permanent digital nomads who are looking for creativity and connection.

Being a digital nomad comes with its pros and cons. While on one hand you’re given freedom, you also tend to feel lonely with a longing for human interaction. Striving to provide that human element, Steve is happy to be “this kind of anchor, the safety net, a trusted brand” as a coworking community in Bali.

With the goals of promoting growth and excellence for its members, Hubud not only acts as an office space and social “clubhouse” for its members, but also promotes learning by offering frequent workshops in topics such as marketing and technical skills. Through programs from New Member Orientation and monthly memberships to Startup Weekend and Launch 30, this coworking space shows that the recipe for a successful coworking space is balanced between dedication and strategy, as well as making connections and being part of a community.
