Coworking is an emerging trend for a new generation of workers looking to avoid the traditional 8-5 shift in a boring cubicle, or the dreaded commute.

Coworking spaces have been developed by entrepreneurs, consultants, and freelance artists seeking an alternative to working in coffee shops and cafes, or the isolation of independent or home offices. Coworking spaces offer the appeal of a progressive workspace, blended with a casual cafe like feel, while still offering all of the important things you need to run your business. (high-speed internet, phones, conference rooms). That’s what makes cool coworking spaces.
