Co-working spaces are booming across the world in recent years and it is no surprise that it will significantly disrupt the traditional way of buying private office spaces. Let us demystify the reason.
Research shows that 65% of the Indian population is below 35 years of age - that's an incredible number of youths and they do not aspire to buy/own the house or even a car.
Sociologists say it is because of the financial crisis which is surely one of the reasons but the fact is they have a completely different set of values than their parents - they are less likely to care for stability and prosperity - all they care about is flexible, financial and geographical independence.
Why buy a car if you can take a cab (that too with a driver)? Why buy a house when you can rent it out? - Now you know why UBER is valued at $62 billion and Airbnb at $31 billion because of rising in the gig economy and co-working spaces are no different.
Let's quickly look at some of the benefits of a coworking office:-
1) Tempting cost:
