The Most Common Demographic Users of Coworking Spaces
But who are these people? Who uses coworking spaces and why? Are these really as trending?
To answer the first question – who? Well, everyone, every professional from every industry, irrespective of the type and size, are reaping the benefits of a coworking space. Specifically, here’s a list of the most common professionals who tend to rent out coworking spaces:-
- Creative People
Also known as “creative cities”, the very concept of coworking spaces was designed to host entrepreneurs and creative-minded people striving to break down the barrier of isolation and get out of work from home models. Simply put, coworking spaces are the perfect replacement for a conventional workplace. The only differences are that you get a lot of amenities, an inspirational work environment, and flexible terms & conditions.
According to the study of Bruno Moriset, a professor at the University of Lyon, coworking spaces are ideal for people with creative and digital jobs. He also mentioned that creativity must be organically developed through the complex relationship between working and socializing.
- “Lone Eagles” or Freelancers
Ranging from architecture, journalism, design, music/video production to legal, accountancy, and software engineering, freelancers can work for any company and from any part of the world. However, they all suffer from a lack of structure. Coworking spaces are the answer to this problem.
By helping them provide access to meeting rooms, technology, and social environment, coworking spaces not only offer them an opportunity to make themselves legit with a professional address but also mitigate the lack of stability while giving them the same level of freedom they are accustomed to.
- Entrepreneurs and Fast-Growing Businesses
Incubators, business centers, telecenters, and working “third places” are some of the most common adjectives used to define a coworking space. This hybridization of workplaces is particularly beneficial for entrepreneurs and fast-growing businesses. Here’s why…
When you are just starting out, connections are your golden tickets. The more you network, the more your business will grow. That’s the law of business. Coworking spaces offer entrepreneurs and scaling companies the perfect opportunity to build invaluable connections that can help you gain a competitive edge. Beyond connections, coworking spaces also offer flexible working models wherein business owners can grow or reduce the number of desks as per their business needs.
The List Doesn’t End Here…
The word limit may be over for this blog, but the list of people who can use and reap the benefits of coworking spaces is definitely not. Ranging from architects, doctors, lawyers, consultants, HR to media, and virtually anyone who is a carrier of projects and ideas, wishes to share them with others and favors collaboration can leverage the power of coworking spaces.
