Teresa Jackson, Founder & Director Collabor8te (UK)

Teresa Jackson is the founder of Collabor8te, an independent coworking space in Glasgow, Scotland. Launched in 2014 out of a desire to work alongside other business owners, she hadn’t even heard of coworking at the time of opening the doors of the original space but saw an opportunity to provide city centre business workspace at an affordable price for small companies like her own.

For as long as she’s been in business, Teresa has believed in the power of small businesses working together and strives to create a friendly, professional, and welcoming space to enable business owners, remote workers, and entrepreneurs to achieve more as part of the Collabor8te community than they can alone. The many business and social events held throughout the year lead to new businesses, innovation, and friendships.

Service-led, but with the lowest possible impact on the environment, the business uses small local suppliers, and renewable energy sources and recycles everything possible. Our commitment to being sustainable was cemented earlier this year by proudly achieving B Corps accreditation.
