Sick of working alone? In need of an office?

Posted by juttajerlich on 12. March 2014

CoWorking SpaceLooking for an office is not what it used to be.

If you rephrase the question or task at hand, depending on how you define this for yourself, it can be reworded to looking for a desk, a shared office or in new terms a co-working space.

As an EPU in Austria – EPU stands for Ein Personen Unternehmen which is a OPC One-Person-Company – finding a place to work in an office setting rather than in a coffee house or at home.

It is not only a step ahead if you do not work in your pajamas any more, but brings a manifold set of advantages:

  • lower costs than your own office
  • other goal-oriented people to talk to
  • a community of people who are potentially a network
  • motivation, entrepreneurial spirit and drive … which could very well be the most important factor of all

Community creates momentum

This movement was born in Vienna more than ten years ago, when universities started to build their entrepreneurial centers. It is great to see that the spark is spreading big time now. Check out the VIDEO Startup City of Vienna

Are there any startup movements, co working spaces, community hubs in your city?

Where can you take your ideas in your city?

Looking forward to your comments and feedback
