Working from your kitchen might seem like the ideal solution, but distraction, poor infrastructure, and isolation can all push you to look for a work space outside your home.
Co-working spaces, also called hubs, are the answer. Remote employees, freelancers, and start-up entrepreneurs use shared office space to build communities of like-minded individuals who get inexpensive access to high-quality office facilities, as well as support and social engagement from other hub users.
The Advantages of Hubs
Hubs allow people working remotely to achieve a lot more than they would achieve on their own.
- Rural revitalization
Share ideas in a modern, comfortable environment providing all the advantages of a typical modern office (without the high costs), combined with the flexibility and independence of remote working.
