What is Coworking Space
Coworking space in a nut shell is an open plan office space where people from all industries come to perform there day to day business tasks.
Coworking space gives entrepreneurs and freelancers access to all the facilities of a normal office space but, you have no lease and do not have all the costs that go with setting up an office like, internet, telephone, furniture, receptionist, cleaning staff, security etc.
Spaces are open plan, and you only pay for the space you need through a monthly membership fee. This gives you access to the facilities like, internet, printers, landline telephones, on-board receptionist, coffee stations and more. Best of all you will have the flexibility to grow or downsize your business as contracts are monthly.
Being part of a coworking office space gives you the opportunity to socialize, brainstorm and share knowledge with fellow entrepreneurs and freelancers from other industries.
Having a shared space, a sense of community and increased networking opportunities with goal orientated professional, are just a few more reasons you should choose coworking spaces.
