What are the benefits?
Surrounded by freelancers, entrepreneurs and small businesses, there are plenty of networking opportunities in co-working spaces with like-minded people who are also trying to build a business. Need digital marketing advice? There could be an expert in that field sitting right next to you. Bouncing ideas with a fellow hot-desker you’ve met could turn out be your next business partner or investor.
Meeting new people and the potential of learning something new? What’s not to love?
Flexibility and cost effectiveness
Co-working allows your startup to be flexible as it expands/changes. You can use the space as and when you need it on a daily or monthly basis without being tied into paying rent for months at a time, allowing for an easy gateway to changing plans. It is certainly a flexible option for a startup whose operations are going to be unpredictable.
Struggle to get motivated working from your own home? You’re not the only one. Surround yourself with like-minded working professionals in a co-working environment and you’ll find it easier to get stuck in. The fact that you’re paying to be there is motivation alone!
