What is coworking?
Coworking is a style of work which involves a shared working environment, yet independent activity. Typically it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation. Coworking is the social gathering of a group of people, who are still working independently, but who share values, and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with talented people in the same space.

The coworking movement is being fed by today’s economy – technology allows us to work anywhere, any time; layoffs have led to a surge of start-ups and freelance workers; the green movement encourages a decreased commute. While there are many tangible benefits to coworking spaces (shared wifi, printers, reception, rent, conference rooms, etc.), coworking goes well beyond this. Quality of life is improved by building relationships, heightened productivity, easy commute, and the amenities of a city just footsteps away. Coworking allows us to choose where, when, and with whom we work.
