Coworking is the concept of working in an environment alongside professionals from all backgrounds. From self-employed professionals to established companies, more and more entrepreneurs are starting to figure out and make the most of the flexible and hassle-free environment offered by shared coworking spaces offers across the pond.
As they allow people to share affordable space and all the facilities that comes with it, coworking venues also provide businesses with opportunities to network with one another and work together to help each other.
Many companies started off working in a coworking environment before expanding. Instagram, for example, launched their company while working within a co-working environment before expanding; then selling their company to Facebook for $1 billion.
London has several hundreds coworking venues, one of them is CoWork Hub. Located in West London, this spacious building provides start ups and entrepreneurs with a professional working space so that they can focus on their business while the logistic of the office is taken care of by the coworking space’s management team.
At CoWork Hub, they really make it easier for businesses to grow. They do not demand a deposit when members join in, there is no minimum contract (they operate on an 1-month rolling contract basis) and members get to use meeting rooms and a gym free of charge.
Offering hot desking, virtual office, dedicated desks memberships as well as meeting rooms that can be rented out on a hourly basis for meetings, training sessions and seminars, CoWork Hub provides affordable high quality working environment.
As a work experience student at CoWork Hub, I have developed my administration and research skills. Among other things, I have worked on the company’s social media and helped with new ways to promote the business using Instagram and LinkedIn. I have also done research about bloggers who write about coworking spaces.
The open office space allowed me to interact with various businesses and find out what they do. The great thing about Cowork Hub is the support members give each other. Coworkers can use their networks and connections to promote one another.
