LOHAUS is China’s first social enterprise coworking and event space. Established in June 2013, it is also one of only a handful of social enterprise coworking and event spaces in the world that devotes 100% of its profits to social impact activities. LOHAUS is not a charity dependent on donations, nor a government-funded social welfare organization, nor is it a co-operative only for its members’ benefit. Rather it is a 100% investor-funded for-social-profit enterprise where its members have a positive impact on society through their use of the LOHAUS facilities. LOHAUS receives no government funding of any kind and competes with other private enterprises on a level playing field. LOHAUS is also short for Loft (or Lifestyle) of Health and Urban Sustainability. It is a life philosophy that expresses a desire to be healthy, happy, and in balance with the environment (which can represent both the natural and artificial, such as our urban cities). At LOHAUS, we hope that both independent professionals and office workers can learn new ways of thinking, and doing, their work in a healthier, happier way. By doing so, you improve your own effectiveness and performance, and LOHAUS gives you an environment in which to learn more. For more information, please read the LOHAUS Manifesto by our founder.
