Last year, I did an internship in a coworking space in Hong Kong (the Hive). I enjoyed the entrepreneurship mind I felt there, and I really think it was a great workspace for entrepreneurs and startups. For the same reason, I’m about to start a 6 months internship in another coworking space in Toronto (Foundery), in few weeks.
I discovered that most of entrepreneurs have never heard about these spaces, even though they might be interested in. So I decided to explain in this article what they are, to whom they are dedicated, and what they can offer.
What is a coworking space?
It is a working space, designed as an open area where entrepreneurs and startups can work. Workers can rent a desk for a day, a week or a month for a lower price than a traditional office. These workspaces are designed to inspire and to improve creation, productivity and sharing. Some of them can also offer dedicated and locked office, as if it was an office rental.
