Co-working spaces are a relatively new phenomena, and are now really coming into their own. Recently I’ve been spending a lot of time in a number of co-working spaces around Melbourne and I have been loving every single one. Each is unique, full of different people, different services, different vibes and their own special stories to tell. Working in these spaces ensure you will always be surrounded by like-minded, talented individuals and teams which can really benefit you in the short and long term.
But curing startup loneliness is not the only benefit you’ll get. Research shows that startups who work in a co-working space are Four times more likely to succeed than those who don’t. Not only that a study from Deskmag.com found that those who decided to work in co-working spaces were more likely to be motivated, have higher levels of interaction, and more than half worked in supportive teams.
Not to mention the fact that most people found that they were able to relax more at home, and 46% reported earning a higher income ever since they started working at a co-working space.
So if you and your startup aren’t based in a co-working space then you very well should be. But if you’re still not convinced let’s find a few more reasons as to why you’ll, almost assuredly, double your performance and productivity at a co-working space.
