We give you 7 reasons to work in a coworking space

Coworking spaces are growing. In Portugal, mainly in great urban centres like Lisbon and Porto, shared working spaces are increasing every day.  However, contrarily to what was initially the trend, not only freelancers seek places like these as an alternative to home office. Nowadays, the number of entrepreneurs and even corporations adopting coworking is soaring and there are several reasons to justify it.

Ideal for professionals from different sectors, who want great infrastructures at reduced prices with multiple services available, coworking spaces are here to stay. Here are 7 advantages of becoming a member of a coworking space.


1. Possibility of “renting” an office at a lower price

A coworking space allows those who work on their own to have an office space that provides comfort and an environment that encourages business. For example, if you’re a freelancer tired of running to the local library or the closest coffee shop, this can be an excellent option. In addition, due to the income instability, it might not be easy to compromise on a rental of a standard office space. Besides, the “open-space” philosophy is an advantage to engage with other members.


2. Worry-free

For those who prefer to focus all their attention on the business, setting free from the burden of dealing with logistics, coworking spaces are perfect. Besides services like water, electricity, internet and printers, you won’t have to worry with lengthy services’ contracts, cleaning, maintenance, etc.

In these spaces, you have access to all the necessary services for the development of your business - a comfortable and fully equipped space, often with reception, mail handling and phone services.

These amenities have been attracting a lot of companies (even international), that choose renting fixed desks or private offices in coworking spaces for their employees.


3. Double the motivation and productivity

For many, working from home has advantages, like comfort, saving time and the possibility of saving also on the monthly expenses with office space and meals. However, for others, home office is a synonym of a decrease on motivation and constant procrastination.

A lot of people say they can’t focus while working from home. Due to the aloneness and permanence in the same environment, motivation tends to plummet. The consequence of the lack of stimuli is, evidently, a nosedive on productivity.

A coworking space, shared with members from different industries, can work as an extra injection of enthusiasm. Therefore, if you’re creating your own start-up, take into account the possibility of moving into a coworking space. Having a motivated team will help you achieving the success you’re aiming at, sooner than you can imagine.


4. An environment where creativity is contagious

Working on your own often causes creative blocks. Being integrated in an environment where others are creating and developing their own ideas, stimulates creativity considerably. Even if the industries that members of the community work in are different, a workplace with more movement encourages diversity and the exposure to new concepts and work methodologies.

A coworking space allows its members to be in permanent contact, and constant exchange of ideas and experiences, setting up a very dynamic environment.


5. In a coworking space, sharing is imperative

Besides creativity, “open-space” fosters a more dynamic and collaborative culture. The possibility of sharing an office with other brands aligned with your goals and values, facilitates the creation of advantageous synergies which has been attracting a lot of companies to coworking spaces.


6. A network that grows day by day

The opportunity to create networking, due to the community environment that the majority of these spaces share, is another huge advantage. You can meet different people almost on a daily basis and engage on the activities these spaces often organize such as: talks, products’ launch, investors’ meetings and workshops.

This environment is very favourable to increasing your contact list and that is also the reason why entrepreneurs choose coworking spaces.


7. Professional environment

For quite some time, coworking spaces were associated to laid back environments, very focused on young and independent people. However, nowadays, they go way beyond that.

In a coworking space, it is possible to find a very professional environment, despite the casualness. The interiors include distinct areas dedicated to office work, meetings with clients/suppliers and leisure.

Besides, it is important to mention that your possibilities don’t end on shared desks. You can choose a private office to work with your team and take profit from the fully equipped meeting rooms and phone booths.


Coworking is, undoubtedly, one of the biggest trends in nowadays work market. If you’re looking for a place to work, either by yourself or with your team, an environment to share space and knowledge can be the best fit.
