With the rise of remote capability and flexible professions, many pioneering businesses are now opting to share offices and communal spaces within convenient distances from both the CBD and their favourite amenities – and for good reason.
What is Co-working?
C-Base, one of the first co-spaces ever created, was founded in Germany in the 90s. It was initially designed for scientists to come together and exchange methodologies, technologies and digital projects. From there, the idea inspired members to collaborate and bounce off one another for the purposes of scientific advancement.
In 1995, approximately 10,000 people were utilising shared facilities such as ours. Fast forward to 2020, and an estimated 2.2 million people were enjoying the benefits. In 2021, that figure is set to further skyrocket.
These set-ups are generally membership-based suites where a range of different (often small) organisations or departments, start-ups, freelancers, small business owners and other personnel operating remotely come together in a communally shared environment.
But these days, co-working is so much more than just a shared environment. It builds partnerships, promotes collaboration, explores new ways of doing things, inspires innovation, enables opportunities for making new contacts and delivers a place to be as creative as you can be among other like-minded professionals.
