COWORKING PLACES TO START YOUR BUSINESS
Coworking…. What is coworking? Coworking is a new trend in a more flexible, user friendly and more vibrant working environment. Coworking is a shared office space on a permanent or temporary basis. Coworking works so that a person can rent just a desk and not a full office for indefinite period of time or just for a day, week, month or a few days per month. Or even few hours. It’s flexible. It’s desk on the go.
More and more coworking spaces are springing up in cities, both major and smaller. There is heaps of available office space that needs to be utilized and on the other side there is a large number of self employed or freelance young professionals. And putting the two together you get a coworking environment, a coworking space that is vibrant, energetic and fun to work at and use. It feels like a new world altogether.
There is no general standard how one coworking space looks and what it has to have. The general rule is that it has to have desks, chairs and internet connection. A must! However, some spaces are more office like, while some are more laid back or just like a living room back home. Also, the influence on how the coworking place looks like and feels like depends whether it is in the city, rural place or even a beach. Whatever the type or design is, the coworking is work place that is filled with positive energy, vibe, young professionals, new ideas and fun.
The benefit of using a coworking space, either on regular basis or from time to time, is the option to interact with other young professionals, exchange ideas and opinions, learn and profit from others point of view. All coworking spaces offer desk, chair, internet connection, printing facilities, kitchen, etc. Some, larger spaces, offer small office, conference rooms, quiet rooms, phone booths, fax and copy services, secretarial and business services. Actually, there is no limit on what it can be on offer.
Who uses coworking space? Young self employed professionals are main users of coworking space along with freelancers, journalists, independent contractors and people that frequently travel and during their work away from work need office, conference rooms, etc. The people that use the coworking space are work minded people, who do work and are not there for the socializing, although, socializing, kitchen and meeting other professionals is the key for the success of any coworking space.
Most importantly, coworking spaces offer the solution to isolation that many self employed and freelancers experience while working from home or from their couch. Anyway, being at one coworking space is a positive experience, meeting wonderful people, exchanging views and performing better.
