In the quest to discover the most happening coworking space in the world, Kowrk floated the third season of Koolest KoSpace contest. This zero entry fee competition invited applications from shared workspaces around the world in an endeavor to discover the trendiest and the most user-friendly coworking hub.

Kowrk concluded the third Koolest KoSpace contest for coworking spaces around the world.  The coveted title required coworking spaces to compete against each other for their uniqueness, quirkiness, efficiency, networking opportunities, amenities, packages, and infrastructure. The manager and users of the collaborative places could nominate the space if they believe that their space has been making a difference.


The innovative competition which ran during the months of September and October received an astounding response from the shared workspaces sector across the globe in the form of entries from coworking spaces located in 40+ cities.

These entries were submitted across 3 different categories (not mutually exclusive).

  • 75% entries for great amenities (10bps increase YoY)
  • 75% entries for useful networking events (5bps increase YoY)
  • 95% for the helpful team (10bps increase YoY)

As the coworking industry is growing, it is standardizing. Most of the spaces (new or old) are paying special attention to user experience and are offering most of the desired amenities and growth opportunities. The’Wow’ factors two years back are basic expectations today. As this industry continues to grow, spaces will need to innovate in order to stand out.

Winner Selection Process

The winner was selected by a panel of advisors who evaluated the nominated spaces against stringent benchmarks. Each expert selected 10 top spaces. All those spaces were then rated on the prescribed parameters and a winner was selected based on the weighted average score. This neck to neck competition compelled Kowrk’s experts to select 4 coworking places for special commendation.
