Common Ground, Malaysia’s largest co-working space, is pleased to welcome Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO) as its first anchor tenant. EO engages the world’s most influential community of entrepreneurs, with a strong local presence built through it’s Malaysian chapter.

EO is a global network exclusively for entrepreneurs, its Malaysian chapter supporting 164 members across the country. EO Malaysia will be moving into its new headquarters when Common Ground opens on the 1st of March. As part of the partnership, EO will be hosting events on-site and facilitating mentorship and engagement programs.

Also coming to Common Ground are several of the region’s leading venture capital firms, including Jungle Ventures, KK Fund, East Ventures and IMJ. Common Ground’s versatile office setup serves as a convenient base for venture capitalists, enabling a great degree of work flexibility as they travel across markets.

Co-founder of Common Ground, Erman Akinci, commented “We are excited to welcome EO to Common Ground. Our members come from different industries and diverse backgrounds, each bringing their own unique expertise and skillsets. This enables us to create a vibrant ecosystem within Common Ground, connecting entrepreneurs, advisors, investors and service providers in the one space.”

Common Ground is currently the largest co-working space in Malaysia, situated in a 17,000 sqft penthouse in Damansara Heights with breathtaking panoramic views of Kuala Lumpur city. It will feature over 50 private offices along with an extensive communal café and lounge area. The space is easily converted to a versatile event space that will allow both members and outside parties to hold seminars and talks, designed to encourage group knowledge sharing and community building.

Fellow co-founder, Juhn Teo, adds “Whilst there is an increasing number of firms offering co-working offices for rent, our size allows us to offer a far more vibrant network and community. This allows our members to get exposure to a vast range of potential and opportunities. We expect to showcase great examples of collaboration as we bring together an exciting group of entrepreneurs across the region.”
