David Walker, with 16 years of leadership in the coworking industry, is recognized as an early pioneer who significantly shaped the movement’s evolution. Beginning his coworking journey in Austin in 2008, he co-founded one of the world’s original 50 coworking spaces, two years before the emergence of industry giants like WeWork. This venture expanded to three locations within six years, making a significant contribution to an industry that now encompasses over 30,000 spaces globally.

In 2014, Walker co-founded OpenWork Agency, the first full-service global coworking consultancy. Following a decade of working with real estate developers and investors all over the world, David launched CoworkingConsulting.com in 2023, establishing a collaborative partner ecosystem and platform for coworking development stakeholders. His efforts have significantly impacted the coworking industry, helping deploy coworking businesses in diverse locations such as Kenya, Singapore, China, the Bahamas, Dubai, and many locations across the United States.

Born and raised in the Lonestar State and a proud University of Texas at Austin alum, David spent 20 years living in Austin and now resides in the mountains of Prescott, Arizona, with his wife and two sons. Committed to transforming traditional work models into dynamic ecosystems of collaboration, David’s aim is to redefine the future of workspaces through enhanced community engagement and innovation.
