The Goa government is going to promote the “culture of #WorkationGoa” through co-working spaces to be created on the beaches, state Tourism and Information and Technology Minister Rohan Khaunte said.
Benaulim beach in South Goa district and Morjim and Miramar beaches in North Goa district have been identified for setting up such co-working spaces. “We want such people who would opt to work from home to come here and work from these co-working spaces and also help us in the IT ecosystem,” he said.
T-Hub is an innovation intermediary and business incubator based in Telangana. Based on the triple helix model of innovation, it is a partnership between the Government of Telangana, three academic institutes in Hyderabad and the private sector. “We need spaces to develop Goa like the T-Hub. We have already started advertising to seek spaces to create co-working spots.” the minister said. The Goa government is going to sign a Memorandum ofUnderstanding (MoU) with the Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK) for the purpose. Khaunte also said the tourism department was planning to set up shacks, having modern facilities including Wi-Fi spread across North and South Goa districts.
