Coworking has revolutionized the way people choose to work. For many, it has become the obvious choice to set up shop and get down to business. And if you’re wondering, yes, the coworking phenomenon has a place in Weston too.

Yet, many still feel skeptical about coworking; they just don’t get it. This, of course, happens among those who haven’t had a coworking experience, those that haven’t been lucky enough to walk into a space and interact with the people there and see first hand what all the rave is about.

Here’s a quick hint–it’s not the design, or the location, or the amazing coffee (although these all certainly help). It’s the people factor that draws many in and keeps them in. Simply said, coworking wouldn’t be the hit it is if it weren’t for the sense of community it consistently fosters.

And while you might be thinking that this applies only inside the walls of the physical space; that is not true. The impact coworking spaces have on the local community goes beyond providing networking opportunities and shared resources to get work done.

Here’s how coworking spaces are powering Weston’s economy and community by encouraging innovation and promoting local businesses.

These spaces are the physical manifestation of community and collaboration. Regardless of your trade, these workspaces welcome anyone and everyone, finding ways to make it easier for you or your business to succeed. Successful business, as you know, drive a healthy and strong economy.

Because they are located in the heart of neighborhoods, these spaces allow for people to easily walk or to commute via public transportation. Not only does this allow people to get to know their surrounding environments better, it also means that they are more likely to step into a restaurant or coffeeshop for a quick break, keeping the business going for many local companies.

Coworking members actively seek ways in which they can collaborate with one another and help each other out. Whether you’re an accountant needing a programmer, or a designer needing a writer, chances are you will find someone that’s a fit within your coworking community or they will know someone that knows someone.
