Coworking space, by definition, is a shared working environment designed to maximize the productivity of its tenants. Unlike the traditional office model, coworking space encourages interaction and collaboration between different professions.

Deemed as the “future of work”, coworking spaces continue to grow in popularity across the United States, Europe and Asia. According to Deskmag.com, as of 2013, more than 110,000 people work in one of the nearly 2,500 coworking spaces available worldwide. In comparison to the year before that, there was an 83% growth in the number of coworking spaces and and 117% more members.

The “future of work “is now upon us and it’s here to stay.

The Rise of the Independent Workforce
Currently 30% of U.S. knowledge-based workers are independent (freelancers, consultants, entrepreneurs). This figure is projected to reach 60% by 2020. (MBO Partners – State of Independence Report)

Most of these independents work (and will continue to work) from home.  While this can be cost effective and convenient, many experience isolation and report difficulty focusing due to many distractions.
