I first heard about The Sett a couple of months ago over a coffee with 2 great chaps, Don Muller & Trav Gale who work for a cool company called Appletree Catalyst Agency. Both these guys have been amazing influences in my life over the last couple of years, so I knew this was going to be an awesome spot.
The Sett is an Agile Workspace based in Umhlanga in Durbs. What this means is that anyone who is anyone can work there for a daily fee. Included in the price is Free WiFi, Coffee, light beverages and some snacks during your day. They also offer printing facilities & also have a meeting & training rooms on site, which you can book for any client meetings or training sessions you need to have while you there. Basically, it is an office away from the office.
The rates are really affordable as well, and will more than likely work out cheaper if you were to hire an office. You can use the prepaid option which is R150 for the day, or purchase bundles of 10 (R1250) or a monthly unlimited package for R2200. They also have rates for hiring out of boardrooms or meeting rooms. Check out the full rate sheet
I can see myself using this quite a bit when I need to have a dedicated office for the day or have to have meetings. All in all an great concept, and I can’t wait to see it grow & expand around South Africa !
