So you’ve decided to join the next generation of entrepreneurs and give coworking a try. But with dozens-if not hundreds- of options out there, how do you choose the best one? Don’t worry, the team over here at Kowrk has got your back!
Choose a space that best suits your working style.
The big, cutting-edge coworking space with beer on tap might be awesome, but it might not necessarily be what’s best for your company. Working on a bean bag chair is cool and may be a dream come true for a lot of people, but it might not be the best place to get some work done for others. Maybe you need a quiet space to work. Or perhaps you prefer a seat with a view of the grand outdoors. There are plenty of coworking spaces that can meet your specific preferences.
Make sure you like the culture.
While the work of a digital nomad might be independent or entail self-employment, your working environment does not have to be secluded. In an office, company’s culture is everything, and coworking spaces are no different. Before making a long-term commitment to a coworking space, work there for a day and see how it feels. Is there a friendly atmosphere? Is the staff helpful? How are the other entrepreneurs working there? These are all questions you must ask before taking the plunge.
You wouldn’t book a hotel without checking out the reviews first and coworking spaces are no different. Except moving your business to a coworking space is a way bigger commitment than spending a week in a hotel so it’s even more important that you do your due diligence first. Check out the amenities offered, pictures of the coworking spaces, and most importantly- reviews by people who have already been there. Make sure that you are getting a coworking space that best suits your working style and has a culture that you like!
