What is coworking?




  1. the use of an office or other working environments by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge.

    "the whole idea of coworking is to bring bright, creative people together and let the ideas collide."


Coworking is the social gathering of a group of people, who are still working independently, but who share values and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with talented people in the same space.


Coworking breaks down walls so that we can break through them in our small businesses and non-profit organizations.
