Coworking has many advantages for individuals who currently work at home and for startups. In places like New York City and San Francisco, where traditional office space is very expensive, shared office space is an increasingly popular option with added benefits, in addition to affordability.
For startups and freelancers, shared office space offers considerable networking opportunities with other professions in common areas and cafes. A web developer may find the person sitting next to them needs a website, while a startup may find the ideal person to market their new service in the lounge.
Working in a professional environment makes freelancers more productive. Getting dressed, instead of staying in pajamas, and getting away from all the distractions at home fosters efficiency and offers a better balance between work and family. Being surrounded by peers in a coworking environments also eliminates the isolation some people experience when working at home each day.
In New York City, Workville, which features all types of shared office space, is conveniently located in a luxury office building on Broadway.
