The co-working idea is simple: independent professionals and those with flexible workplace work better together than they do alone. Co-working spaces are about community-building and sustainability. They also share the values of collaboration, openness, accessibility. Co-working offers a solution to the problem of isolation that many freelancers experience while working at home, while at the same time letting them escape the distractions of home. Thus, co-workers are about creating better places to work and as a result, a better way to work.
