Technology has transformed the way people work and, as a result, office space for rent and work surroundings are changing too. This has led to the rise of co-working.

What is co-working?

Co-working is defined as “the use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge.” And ultimately, the age of the millennial has arrived and co-working spaces have been popping up all over.

“Co-working can be traced back hundreds of years to artist and writer collectives and other communities of practice.” ( In 2005, technology was making the aforementioned activities possible in new and never-before-seen ways and so, Brad Neuberg gave the word ‘co-working’ a whole new meaning and definition. It became more of a movement than a concept. Co-working upholds certain values such as “community, openness, collaboration, accessibility and sustainability”, and we see this in many of the co-working spaces that are available.
