Campfire offers more than just workspaces

Members become part of a collaborative community.

Campfire Collaborative Spaces are industry-focussed workspaces equipped with tools and services to enable members to grow. Campfire, which believes an office is much more than just a place to work from, provides the following: flexible and multifunctional creative spacing for professionals in any industry; community formed by connecting workers across office locations; and benefits including discounted deals.

"Besides having convenient locations and sleek furnishings, what sets Campfire apart is that its centres are industry-focussed," says co-founder and director Wang Tse. Campfire’s first space in Kennedy Town is based around the tech vertical and startups, whilst the second location in Wong Chuk Hang is geared towards high fashion and houses upcoming labels.

"This approach will also be applied to the next three centres, which are opening by July this year," says Tse. "In a crowded co-working arena, Campfire’s offering is well received by tenants and investors alike. Being industry-focussed, our centres stand out in allowing for more relevant networking opportunities, events, and collaborations."

The business was co-founded by Tse, Albert Fung, and Brian Fung, who all saw the potential of co-working in urban cities like Hong Kong. After 10 years in private wealth, Albert linked up with Tse and Brian, both serial real estate entrepreneurs, to utilise their natural synergy in coming up with a co-working business that investors can get behind.

Tse shares that they have recently finished their first seed round of funding, securing US$6m in investments from various experienced angel investors from the real estate industry. "Given the capital-intensive nature of the business, Campfire is looking at raising more money in order to launch more differentiated industry-focussed centres to help more businesses in Hong Kong and Asia scale rapidly," he says.
