Before Simon Lyngsø founded Joes & Cos, he previously worked in the public sector and he shares his experiences when he started.
In Simon’s Own Words
I have previously worked for Metroselskabet & Hovedstadens Letbane as a Digital Product Partnership Manager for 6 years where I introduced new digital solutions into the Public Transportation via app and web. And now, I have a start up called Joes & Cos. We launched it in Copenhagen 2 years ago.
It’s a platform where you have access to different workspaces. It’s like a third working space right in your pocket where you can check in and do your work, in the meantime, meeting other people. Co-working spaces have their own culture. And we aim to make this culture strong by having co-working Wednesdays.
Experiences as an Employee in the Public Sector of Denmark
I was actually an employee in the government. It was quite nice in a way that the first time I came in the office, I had a desk which was dedicated to me. I was quite impressed by having my laptop already set-up with my name, e-mail and everything. I had a mobile phone that was connected and all the employees’ number already registered in the phone so I could call them easily. The technological part of onboarding was amazing. I remember I was just ‘Plug-and-Play’, it was great!
