Benefits of a Coworking Space for Startups

09 Mar, 2018
A Coworking space is an office space shared by a heterogeneous group of freelancers, small business owners, solo entrepreneurs and independent professionals. Each worker rents out his or her own desk space and enjoys the services a Coworking space has to offer. “Coworking spaces are booming these days and the turnout has been great so far”, says Sneh Bhavsar, founder of Uncubate, the Best Coworking space in Ahmedabad the heart of the city. There are a multitude of reasons behind choosing a Coworking space over renting an office.

1. Basic Amenities
Free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, lighting, sanitization facilities, and resource books for reading, tea/coffee and a water dispenser save you from overhead cost and help you focus on the most important thing - WORK!

2. Networking
Since a Coworking space is shared by a multifarious group of individuals from different walks of life, there is a fair chance of building contacts which may help you to expand your business as well as give you ideas on how to run your start-up or business successfully.

3. Culture
Working from home can get monotonous, distracting and frustrating beyond a certain point. A dedicated space will keep you motivated since you will be surrounded by like-minded individuals who are dedicated to their work. It gives you the feeling of a community. “The lunch table conversations range from politics to food, and birthday of every member is celebrated in a grand way”, says Ruchika Mahajan, a Product Analyst at Uncubate, Ahmedabad.

4. Education
Learning about something that complements your profession from your co-workers is the greatest advantage of a shared office space. Some Coworking office spaces have regular training workshops on marketing and consultancy where you can absorb new ideas and learn new skills. Uncubate has a business consultancy called Stimulus within its own space for novice as well as experienced entrepreneurs to go and seek help.

5. Office romance
Since the members are not bound to a singular organization, love can always be in the air.
