Why use a co-working space?
There are several reasons companies and individuals decide to
Working from home presents an abundance of distractions. It’s tough to work effectively when you’re close to your TV, pets, your bed, and family. Keeping work separate from home allows you to keep structure in your life, and provides a reason to get out of the house.
Becoming More Effective
An office environment creates an energy and mindset that can only come from interacting with fellow workers. According to a study featured on Office Vibe, a coworking office environment made 64% of entrepreneurs more productive, 68% of entrepreneurs more focused, and 90% of entrepreneurs more confident. In a coworking space, where everyone is busy on their own passion projects, this buzz will drive you on to make your own business a success.
It’s often said the life of an entrepreneur can be a lonely one. Working alone is isolating and can have a negative effect on your mental well-being. Interactions in a work environment are an important part of daily life. Though you’ll be working on your own business, a coworking space surrounds you with like-minded people who have picked an independent lifestyle that matches yours. It will leave you feeling energized, social, and happy.
Networking Through Coworking
Working alone places a barrier between you and people who could potentially help your business. Coworking puts you near people who might have vastly different skill-sets or solutions to problems, allowing you to “pick their brains”. If you can find a coworking space that aligns with your field of work, it makes this benefit all the stronger.
If you’re starting to consider office space, you’ll soon learn the baggage that comes along with it. Are you ready to sign a fixed-term lease? Install infrastructure? Pay utility bills? A coworking space takes care of all of that, and allows you to rent the space on much shorter, more flexible terms.
Sourcing freelance talent
For resource-strapped startups that rely on outsourcing, it can often be challenging to build a reliable roster of freelancers and consultants. Since coworking spaces usually attract freelancers across a variety of industries, they can serve as an ideal environment for startups to source talent. Whether you need help with content creation, graphic design or HR, it’s very likely that you can find a fellow coworking member who can do the job. And if your startup can’t afford to pay for these services, you can always arrange for a skill exchange that benefits both parties.
One of the main advantages of joining a coworking space is that it gives you access to a network of experienced entrepreneurs. If you are a startup founder in the early stages of launching your business, it’s incredibly valuable to connect with successful entrepreneurs, so you can tap into their expertise. Some coworking spaces even offer mentor-ship programs, and organize regular workshops or talks with industry leaders.
Another reason that startups are flocking to coworking spaces is because they offer an alternative to the day-to-day inconvenience of managing an office space. What if the time and money that you spent on office managers or general maintenance could instead be channeled towards growing your business? By handling everything from electricity bills to facility management, coworking spaces give startups the opportunity to manage their limited resources more efficiently, so that they can devote all their attention to business matters.
If you’ve ever encountered self-doubt as a small business owner you’re not alone. Stepping out on your own removes the safety net we enjoy as a cog in a larger machine. Surrounding yourself with fellow entrepreneurs allows you to push through moments of self-doubt. You can even use them as a sounding board for your ideas.
Some coworking providers offer benefits such as 24 hour access, conference rooms, on-site receptionist and/or admin services such as mail delivery, secure bike lock-ups, showers, use of participating sites in different locations, workshops and educational events, discounts from corporate partners, specialty coffees and snacks, etc.
Why choose the Business District?
Business District is for professionals who care less about free beer and more about the flagship office’s brag-worthy home in an I.M. Pei-designed building. Matt LoGuidice founded the Boston-based company after time spent overseeing his East Coast property management business out of a shared space in Los Angeles. “I couldn’t find a center that occupied the niche I wanted — a center that feels more like a boutique hotel,” he says, explaining his design sense. “We might be the only center of its type in the country where every office has an adjustable-height Herman Miller desk.”
