Co-working. What’s in for me?

The concept of co-working has several dimensions of additional value for all co-workers. The most important aspects are Connectivity, Inspiration, Motivation and Productivity. If you want to find out more about how you could profit from StartNest, check our blog post about the success of co-working.

Why Co-working Works


In the first global co-working survey, a total of 661 people from 24 countries took part. Here’s a quick summary of the results.


A human being never stops learning and so co-workers can learn from each other by connecting and exchanging knowledge in their co-working spaces. They can connect ideas and contacts, experience and hypotheses to get closer to their target. Co-workers consider the community as one of the most important aspects at work.


Working with different people constantly has the ability to inspire. Every co-worker has a story to share that can impact others. Working with other people especially from diverse backgrounds is the engine of often unexpected ideas, which we know as “inspiration”. This inspiration lets new ideas flourish and serve as important factor to generate new momentum.


In comparison to a home office, we are much more motivated if we are able to separate work life and private life. The global study about co-workers reports an enhanced interaction with other people and a strong feeling of productivity and motivation in their co-working space.


Productivity is also increasing in a co-working space. At home or in a cafe, many distractions from flatmates, animals, family members or other café customers can destroy productivity. It is a fact that one can work more concentrated and be more calm in a focused environment.
