Tired of working from home? Are you a new entrepreneur looking for an office? Or maybe you and your team want to take a break from that same old dull office and recharge your batteries in a fresh working environment where you’ll be a lot more productive? If the answer to at least one of these is yes, we’ve got you covered and would like to introduce you to the idea of coworking!
Combining the benefits of café culture, members clubs, and serviced offices, coworking is an arrangement in which workers of different companies share an office space, allowing cost savings and convenience through the use of common infrastructures, such as equipment, utilities, and receptionist and custodial services, and in some cases refreshments. According to research studies, coworking helps workers avoid the feeling of isolation they may experience while working at home alone and improves collaboration and working relationships, comradeship, develops creativity and generates new business ideas, and improves workers’ entrepreneurial skills.
With this in mind, we decided to put together a list of 10 coworking spaces in Cambridge with descriptions, prices, testimonials, locations, and valuable information. Hopefully, this helps you to find an ideal coworking space to work.
