There is a lot of evidence to show that coworking and shared office space has a positive impact in the community and for businesses. Many people thrive in coworking spaces, because it gives them a sense of community and often means they have the ability to make their own schedule (we’re open 24/7, so you can work all night or start your day early – it’s up to you). There are a host of other benefits to coworking, too, like breaking out of your comfort zone and meeting friends, investors, and potential business partners. These are the softer benefits, and these are important to your own personal well-being and that of your team or clients.
We also know that as an entrepreneur or business owner, you have costs to think about too. As our Co-Founder Nam Vu explained in his personal story of 20 years of entrepreneurship and his journey of building businesses with his wife in coffeeshops and their garage, sometimes the cost of coworking doesn’t seem to make sense. Why should I pay for coworking when I can work from coffeeshops or, as we’ve seen during the COVID-19 response, when I can work from home? Nam explains the clear cost/benefit of choosing coworking or an office space in the chart below. While it might seem like an unnecessary expense, you can see that what you get is so much more than just an office.
Below is a Sample Cost Calculator for a typical 100sf office space – as an Office Member you get 24/7 access to all the coworking areas so you can decide when you need to have quiet, focused days in the office or collaboration days at the shared spaces.
