What is Coworking, and what does Coworking mean and can I please have a definition….
Coworking is about community, networking and sharing ideas. Individuals or companies who cowork share a space and share values, but do not necessarily share the same background or profession. Coworking spaces offer flexibility to freelancers and small businesses reducing the financial commitment to a long-term contract on office space or the responsibility of a lease on a property. This enables particularly start up businesses to focus on their business development and networking.
Coworking spaces stimulate communication, collaboration and exchange of ideas. Coworkers support one another. There is a very strong sense of community and belonging to a group, as well as a feeling of pride associated with it. The coworking space community is the principle distinction and attraction to freelancers from a serviced office or working from home.
