Networking events have benefits on both fronts - to the spaces offering the services and the entrepreneur attendees. For coworking spaces, events are opportunities to introduce their services as an ideal space for early-stage startups.

In a similar way, coffee shops and cafes are coming up with similar opportunities for startups to share their space. This competition is making coworking space providers rethink their strategy to attract more clients. They have realized that entrepreneurs want more than just a hot desk to do their work. Business owners need work environments where they can grow innovative ideas. They need to interact and grow with competitors and other professionals in their industry. Coworking spaces are creating the next phase of ideal workspaces that began at Google offices, a relaxed setup that supports innovation.

Shortly thereafter, attendees may be able to come back to their desks and find themselves suddenly solving some of their tough problems with greater ease.   

Other added services at coworking hubs

Apart from having offices in convenient locations, entrepreneurs can use coworking spaces any time of the day and night. Besides, most providers offer their clients with 24/7 access. This can be helpful since some entrepreneurs and freelancers prefer working at night.

Moreover, entrepreneurs can also private offices for their work and conference rooms to meet with their clients. In most cases, these facilities are available at reasonable prices.

Convenience is the selling point  

In essence, it is not the promise of coffee and fast WiFi that pulls the entrepreneurs to shared spaces. It's definitely the convenience that comes with working in such a work environment. They will not have electricity, internet and other bills to worry about. They just pay the monthly fees and work there without any worries.

Besides, the hardships of setting up and maintaining a physical office can be draining, time-consuming, and expensive at the same time. Plus they can decide to use a coworking space for a day or a month, without worrying about long-term contracts.

Creating a work environment for innovation

The creation of a community creates a warm work environment. This helps build an internal flame that can motivate everyone to work harder. In most traditional business incubation centers, everyone is locked in his or her own small cubicle. The atmosphere is usually tense and unusually cold.
