Posted 3 Jul 2019

Story by Her Canberra

Co-working, the concept of working as individuals in a shared space, seems to be taking over the world. As well as Canberra.

Perfect for sole operators, freelancers and small businesses, co-working spaces offer all the perks of an office (and then some) without the overhead costs.

Co-working spaces give your business a professional space to operate from and the opportunity to become part of a like-minded community of driven individuals.

Here are six to check out.
