Mereka Connect, in its simplest form, is a booking platform meets knowledge center. Developed by a team with years of experience in operating a makerspace coupled with passion for tech-driven social innovation and education, Mereka Connect was born from the realization that a lack of accessibility to resources and expertise was severely hindering ideation and innovation.

There are two core services which currently can be offered via Mereka Connect: Experiences and Spaces.
It's very simple - verified Hubs can host Experiences (e.g. workshops, talks or events) and list Spaces (e.g. makerspaces, art studios or co-working spaces) on the platform. To facilitate the process, Hub admins can invite their team members (referred to as Experts) to manage the services they list. Learn more about onboarding as a Hub here.
At the same time, registered users can browse through and book these Experiences and Spaces. This is their chance to upskill, reskill, gain new knowledge or simply have fun! Learn more about booking services on Mereka Connect here.
