Co-working is a style of work that involves a shared working environment where independent professionals and those with workplace flexibility work better together than they do alone. It is not only about the physical place, but also about establishing the co-working community that takes entrepreneurs and businesses a long way into achieving their objectives. Participants agree to uphold the values set forth by the movement’s founders, as well as interact and share with one anotherBasically, co-working spaces are the social gatherings of people who are still working independently, but share values, and are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with people who value working in the same place alongside each other.
- A co-working space creates a platform for you to meet potential clients.
- The Office Set Up allows you to enjoy desk chairs as well as enough desk room to spread out all of your computer equipment, papers, and work utensils.
- Network Without Trying- meet dozens of people with interesting projects by simply working alongside them during the day. Expand your personal and business networks with fun and ease.
- Legitimate Meeting Space- Although you might be comfortable working from home, it’s hardly a place that you’d like to invite clients. Belonging to a co-working space often includes access to conference rooms, which can lend some credibility to your business meetings.
- Pick your niche, where you can enjoy the benefits of being surrounded by people who are doing similar work. Co-working spaces are developing for just about every niche
- Learn something from events and seminars that appeal to you.
- Work more productively by surrounding yourself with others hard at work. This also increases a sense of community and trust amongst peers.
- Decrease your feeling of isolation as a freelancer/small business owner
- Freely handle your business like a boss. Avoid glares from café employees after you plunk yourself down for an eight-hour workday at one of their tables. You don’t have to feel guilty and uncomfortable about working at a co-working space.
- Co-working Spaces reduce the amount of common office overheads like broadband and printer costs and other amenities- Create new opportunities to collaborate on projects too large for your own business.
- Not having to be chained to long leases creates flexibility as you grow your business. Co-working spaces can accommodate changes to the size of your team.
- Work at a high quality office or location otherwise beyond your budget
- Absorb new ideas from other industries not usually within your network
- Co-working spaces can ease some of the stress of starting a new business and provide valuable resources and connections you won’t find anywhere else.
They’re popular for the flexibility they offer new businesses, but the real value is in their assisted serendipity: the informal conversations and the expert advice members are happy to offer one another.
