and our workspace.
Penbrothers opened its doors in December of 2014 in Manila with the hopes of connecting the world to the Philippines, and the Philippines to the world.
Penbrothers was born from a need to meet a new demand and opportunity generated in the startup community, mainly, the co-working sector, with an innovative approach to remote working, offering manning and payroll solutions, beyond a shared working space.
Over the last couple years, Penbrothers has successfully expanded into 3 offices and housing over 40 international and local startups, organizations, and entrepreneurs. This is the Penbrothers ecosystem and where companies use the space to grow, scale, and engage collectively.
Penbrothers’ clients have access to services such as recruitment & staffing, support for employment, payroll, tax compliance and employee benefits.
Cost advantage is the principal value at Penbrothers. By understanding the challenges startups constantly face and the reasons to their failures, Penbrothers sought out an action to aid expanding organizations with talent management and manning services so that clients can concentrate on their business to the core.
Starting as a necessity of what was missing in Manila, Nicolas and Gui used their 15 years corporate and startup working knowledge, to create Penbrothers. Experienced about global business practices, such as in Japan, Australia, US, Philippines, Switzerland or China, the “More than a Co-working Space” concept opened its doors in December 2014. Locally they adopted Gabrielle, who added Filipino management knowledge and cross culture experience. The rest of the team consists of professionals who complement and assist in strategy, operations, human resources, IT, marketing and business development.
“It is amazing to see what we have evolved to, from a small simple office, to a vast multifunctional space. Experience taught us that people produce their best work in an environment where they can strive — that has become our mission.
