Let’s face it; not everyone knows what coworking is yet. In simplicity, CoWorking is a new type of working model generally used by Freelancers, Remote Workers, and Digital Nomads. But CoWorking is so much more than that. But before we go further on the topic, Let’s take a look at how a few companies and people define coworking:
What is Coworking? ~ Wikipedia
Wikipedia says coworking is “a social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently, but who share values and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with people who value working in the same place alongside each other.”
What is Coworking? ~ Google
In Google’s dictionary terms coworking is a type of work that includes “the use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge”.
What is Coworking? ~ CoWorker.com
Coworking is not just about the sharing of infrastructure and cost, it is about belonging to a community, accessibility and sustainability. Coworking is the new way of working and sharing. Coworking spaces are designed to provide a productive and collaborative environment for their dynamic inhabitants, and created without corporate constraints on what is perceived to be an “office” environment offering flexible memberships to suit most needs.
This tells us that CoWorking Space is not just about the way we work. But, it is now a movement on towards building a community of people sharing ideas, helping each other grow, expanding your network, and, most of all, collaborative work.
