With more than 10 million Americans self-employed, low-cost shared office space is becomming a big market. Luckily, New York City has a number of options if you are part of this Tribe.
You get many benefits from this setup. We all love how much the internet and social media has made communication easier and faster, but there is much to be said for face to face communication. Often, the most important meetings and deals are made and done in person. Co-working office space is an ideal environment for that. You meet business minded people and still keep the costs low. The best part, if you don't like it, you can leave.
Equipment and facilities may differ, but most include things like unlimited high-speed internet access, fax machines, printers, a receptionist, a phone, a desk and conference rooms.
Here are some NYC based Co-working Office space providers:
- New Work City (part of Coworking Visa program)
- Sun Shine Suites
- Brooklyn Creative League
- In Good Company (for Women, are men welcome?)
- Jelly (something a little different)
