The future of coworking
We took a look at the future of coworking and asked nine coworking activists and space operators for their opinions about the likely developments over the next five years. Most predicted that the concept would expand to a much wider portion of the labor market. If that’s the case, perhaps the word “coworking” will become known simply as “working”.
Coworking 101: A new definition
How often do you talk about coworking spaces? Rather often, I’d guess, since you are reading this article. While we each have a certain concept of a coworking space, our ideas are not entirely identical. What's more, these concepts are rather vague, revolving around an idea, but not pinning it down.
Exceptional coworking space models
Does focusing on a niche market improve a coworking space’s success? Or does it reduce the opportunity for cross-pollination and network building? In this second part in our series on exceptional coworking models, we look at niche spaces, as well as shared company rooms and sponsored spaces.
The infrastructure of coworking spaces
The original coworking space offered five to eight desks two days a week, along with shared lunches, meditation breaks, bike tours, and a strict closing time of 5.45pm. Today there are over 880 coworking spaces worldwide, but what they offer is considerably different from that first location.
The Coworking Project
