9 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Coworking Space

Written by on November 16, 2016

Coworking spaces seem to be popping up with the hypersonic speed here and there, but choosing the right coworking space for you can be tough.

According to Deskmag’s forecast, there are already around 10,000 locations around the world with more than half a million people working in them in 2015.

In coworking, you usually pay less than you would pay renting an office, as you have the opportunity to choose between several membership plans. While saving money, you gain flexibility and mobility, and have a chance to socialize with other small businesses, freelancers and entrepreneurs.

People who use coworkings tend to find their work more meaningful, to have more control of it, and feel that they are a part of a community at the same time. In addition, some coworkings provide extra discounts, open bars, free coffee and tea, and other perks to keep you happy.

All that probably explains the rapid popularity of coworking spaces. But how do you choose which one is best for you?

Take a look at these 9 important questions that you have to ask before choosing a coworking space.

The best coworking space for you

When you’ve researched coworking spaces in your area, whether in Edinburgh, Bangalore, London, or anywhere else, you’ll get a good idea of what the best one is.

Maybe it’s one that gives you great support in tech, arts or business. Maybe it’s one that lets you work with like-minded people, and even collaborate on projects. Or maybe it’s one that just lets you breathe more easily, have a good cup of coffee and get to work in peace.

Those are some important considerations, and ones only you can decide on. But with some research and asking the right questions, you’ll find your perfect coworking space.

Good luck!
