What is a co-working space? It is a social and semi-informal working environment that is shared by several individuals, all from various organizations or companies that allows them to work independently, yet thrive on the synergy of working in the presence of other like minded individuals.

Most co-working offices are bright and more playful than buttoned down in professional appearance, usually featuring a comfortable communal living room area, a break room or kitchen area stocked with complimentary beverages and a conference room available for rent by the hour.

Some co-working spaces are staffed with a receptionist in case of visitors and are not just comprised of work desks with free Wi-Fi but also with individual offices and cubicle-like spaces.
