Coworking: what you need to know (Part One)

Since late 2005 or early 2006 a movement began which has revolutionized the way vSMEs, SMEs, Solo Entrepreneurs, Startups, Freelancers, and even Undergraduates who have some creativity in them or some services to render can get this done without having to worry about distractions or isolation arising from working at home or the huge cost of renting an office space, furnishing and maintaining it. The movement gave birth to what is now widely known as “Coworking”. Coworking allows vSMEs, SMEs, Solo Entrepreneurs, Startups, Freelancers, and Undergraduates the flexibility to work in an office environment where all the facilities are in place for work optimization and there are like minds who offers inspiration to dream big.
