In the big wide world of shared office space, coworking existed long before the phrase became trendy. And while there were coworking groups as far back as the 1960s, today the idea of sharing space and resources shines brighter than ever, giving entrepreneurs and service providers a single environment in which to work, socialize, and make connections.
But choosing a coworking space over other options (private desks, private suites, getting your own lease, working from home) can be tough.
How do you know if you’re ready for coworking?
1–12: Coworking sounds super cool, but for some other company!
You’ve already got an awesome space, a solid team, and all the perks, benefits, connections, and funding you could dream of, or you’re not even past the “getting a good idea” phase. Coworking is still trendy and amazing, and may have awesome events you'll still want to check out, but it's not the right fit for you...yet.
13–24: Coworking is a solid option!
You’re missing out on some key components, and can’t fill those needs in your current setup. It’s probably time to start searching for a coworking center near you and talking to their team about transitioning to a new space. Once you tick a few more boxes, you're going to want to move fast and start reaping the benefits of the coworking movement.
25–36: Coworking is a must-have!
You are hurting for hires, famished for funding, barking for benefits, and pining for perks. Lucky for you, there are plenty of cool coworking spaces in your area, and you’re ready to move in today. There’s no time to waste!
