5 Great Reasons your Startup Should Consider a Coworking Space

Coworking is nothing new. It’s been around since 2005, empowering remote workers, freelancers, and startups with a dedicated space to do what they do, and more besides.

Startups can derive a lot of benefits from a coworking space. Here are five great reasons your startup should consider a coworking space – if you haven’t already!

1. It’s an affordable way to establish your business

Coworking isn’t like conventional office space. It’s open-concept, for the most part, but today’s coworking spaces provide you with a lot of professional benefits, including:

  • Physical business address
  • Fast internet
  • Professional office equipment
  • Free coffee
  • Access to administrative staff
  • On-demand meeting rooms

Coworking members have access to all of these amenities for a price that is often a fraction of the cost of a traditional office space. Your membership is pay-as-you-go, so even if you’re only in the area for a short time, you still have access to everything you need to get the job done.

2. Grow at your own pace

Startups are often headed up by one or two individuals. But what happens if your idea suddenly explodes and you need more desks? In cases of scale, a coworking space has you covered. Add two or ten employees and only pay a small per-person membership to have access to all the great amenities you have been enjoying.

3. Extra hands when you need them

Your coworking space comes with many perks. One of them is a professional office staff to help when you need it. Say you’ve got to send out marketing packages to potential clients or investors – the coworking office staff has you covered, taking over your reprographic tasks while you get back to innovating, selling, or otherwise working your magic.

4. Building community

One of the biggest drawbacks to working on your own is just that – you’re working on your own. Nobody to try out your pitch on, nobody to bounce ideas off of, no sense of community. Working out of a coworking space gives you the ability to work closely with other people who are as driven as you are. Even if they don’t work in the same niche, chances are they are involved in something just as vital, and you already have one thing in common: your motivation to succeed. A community of like-minded others has the potential to grow in numbers and strength, giving you a range of skillsets to draw from and a critical eye whenever it is needed. If you’re having trouble meeting people, many coworking spaces host regular networking events where you can meet the people that share your space in a more informal environment.

5. Work-life balance

Most entrepreneurs know the pain points of working out of ad-hoc spaces. Your home, with all its interruptions, might be somewhat lacking when it comes to getting things done. A coworking space, while not completely free of distraction, is a space dedicated to work. Being able to leave your personal life at home and your work life at the office will most definitely provide the work-life balance you need to lower your stress level, feel better, and achieve more.
