Today, many freelancers, entrepreneurs, and start-up companies are building their businesses from their “home offices” — also known as their basement, kitchen table or garage. However, being a small company doesn’t mean you have to stay cooped up in your home (or even the local coffee shop) until you can afford to pay office rent. Coworking spaces are a relatively new and innovative solution for those who want a professional workspace, without the high price tag.
Not familiar with coworking spaces? No worries. Smart furniture solutions company, Turnstone (a division of Steelcase), has been studying the coworking movement for a few years and put together a pretty sweet highlight video.
