What is Coworking?

The idea is simple: independent professionals and those with workplace flexibility work better together than they do alone. Coworking spaces are about community-building and sustainability. Participants agree to uphold the values set forth by the movement’s founders, as well as interact and share with one another. We are about creating better places to work and as a result, a better way to work.

 

History of Coworking

Important dates can be added to the History of Coworking timeline. 

 

What is the Coworking Wiki?

The Coworking Wiki is a free, community-owned and operated resource for everyone involved or interested in the world of coworking. For many, it is the first stop in their efforts to learn more about the movement. It offers resources for present and potential coworkers, space owners and operators, and those seeking to form their own coworking space.
