Common Ground


Our Story

Our Story

The Common Ground story started in 2016 with two people, one idea, and enough ambition to spark a community. Juhn Teo and Erman Akinci saw the potential in a growing market. After visiting coworking spaces around the world for inspiration and research, they eventually buckled down and registered their own company in October of 2016. With a small team of 8, Common Ground launched its first venue in March 2017 at Wisma UOA II in Damansara Heights.

Today, there are more than 4,000 members and over a dozen venues across major city hubs, both locally and internationally. In the short span of 2 years, Common Ground has become Malaysia’s largest coworking space. 

Our Values & Culture

We look for people with a forward-thinking perspective, a willingness to adapt and be flexible, and an attitude to work hard and persist even when facing obstacles. When approaching roles and tasks, being open-minded is just as important as being driven. We don't believe in boxing people in, so our teams are always exploring new ideas and taking ownership of different tasks than what they may have been used to in more traditional roles. Much like how Common Ground's coworking community encourages collaboration and synergy amongst its members, we also encourage our crew to embrace today's interdisciplinary approach to working.

Our core values are:
  • Direct and open communication and cooperation
  • Commitment to our team and community 
  • Ownership of roles and tasks 
  • Open-mindedness towards new ideas and projects
