The beauty of coworking spaces is the community they build and the collaboration that they nurture - helping startups find the right networks to get them where they want to go. Other than facilitating relationship building on a daily basis, events are a fantastic way for coworking spaces to help their members. Whether by hosting talks or simple movie nights, events help bring coworking members together outside of working hours.

So, continuing on our series of finding the top events in coworking spaces around Southeast Asia, here's our shortlist for the month of July. Remember to bookmark this page as we'll update it throughout the month when we discover new events.

Join Asia Society Conversations: Internet Survival Guide on July 31 at Acceler8 to learn the dos and don'ts of the internet and how to effectively, and appropriately, communicate across screens.
