11 Surprising Benefits of a Coworking Space

James Hunt has worked in coworking spaces all over the world, from London to Bali.  He looks for ones that offer more than just a place to focus and a reliable internet connection. “I use coworking spaces wherever I travel to find and meet ‘my people’ – the entrepreneurs, the digital nomads, the people who don’t want to work in normal offices,” he says.

Like many others, Hunt finds the camaraderie and community forged in these work spaces as valuable as high-speed internet. “Having a sense of community at a coworking space is so important, so I try to prioritise going to places where community is promoted,” says Hunt. Indeed, his latest project, LiveWorkFit brings together entrepreneurs who want a coworking space, plus a community to support their efforts to be healthy.

If you’ve toyed with the idea of moving your business from your kitchen table or coffee shops to a more formal space, here are some surprising benefits coworking spaces may offer.
