What is The Company and Why Cebu?

The Company is a multi-location co-working space first founded in 2016 in Fukuoka, Japan by productions company Zero-Ten Co., Ltd.

We are honored for The Company to believe so much in the potential of Cebu to have opened two of their branches here, one in Mandaue and another now in the heart of metropolitan Cebu in Cebu IT Park.

Choosing Cebu is a no-brainer for the investors: Cebu is a top tourist destination most known for its pristine beaches and warm hospitality. The overall working environment here is good and healthy for creative collaboration and business relations. Cebu is also among the fast developing cities in the region with a thriving creative background and community.
