What is ‘Co-Working’? Why is there so much hype around it? What makes it so interesting for early stage startups? Questions and so many more questions. Asking questions is easy, finding answers is a different ball game altogether.
The knowledge and experience of your peers and even short, informal interactions around the printer or coffee machine can spark new ideas. It does! Co-working makes it easy to find these answers. That is our definition of Co-working. This is the highlight, this is what creates the hype.
There was a time when consultants, freelancers and entrepreneurs were stuck alone in their home offices or fighting for space at the local coffee shop. Co-working spaces can be usedby anyone, and not just early stage startups, for a very nominal amount of money. Andyes, co-working spaces are definitely a boon for the early stage startups, as startups usually have limited funds that they should use wisely. Thanks to Co-working, all that has changed – and it’s definitely for the better.
We’re sure you’ve heard of co-working. But it’s much more than just resources and a place to do business. It’s a community – and it’s the future of how business is going to be done.
People don’t want to work in tiny cubicles anymore. Working from home can be isolating – and coffee shops can be distracting. But when you co-work, the inspiration goesthrough the roof. You’re surrounded by a ton of passionate people going for a dream.A great Co-working space is a collection of minds inspired by the dreamsthat brought them together. As a member, you benefit from the brand that creates the space, the ethos it aspires to, and the people it attracts. Not only can a great space provide great ideas, but the association could also lend credibility to your otherwise unknown startup.
Amenities available at different Co-working spaces range from free Wi-Fi to coffee to weekly seminars with high-profile guest speakers and shared staff members, such as receptionists. But the unstructured exchanges that take place at the coffee machine are the real deal.
