Freelancers create Hive businesses. Should coworking help facilitate this?

The Wall Street Journal wrote a great article today about how freelancers are creating ad hoc groups to bid on larger projects. The freelancers keep their own client lists but when a larger project comes along they form a single entity with one bill, brand, and spokesperson. I know the coworking thought about doing this a few years ago and I’m curious if any spaces are a brand for larger projects.

Hi Craig,

I’m wondering the same thing with a slightly different twist. Are there any coworking spaces that proactively market the capabilities of the people working inside to the businesses and organizations on the outside that would benefit from more talent and a different perspective? I think there there is a ton of innovation ahead in this area. If this resonates with you then I think you would also appreciate Chapter 14: The World of Work Has Changed, in my book, “The Experience Design BLUEPRINT: Recipes for Creating Happier Customers and Healthier Organizations.”

Connect with me on LinkedIn, Facebook, About, Twitter, Circles, etc. as you wish.

Most of that can be found on my profile at http://www.about.me/olsong

Kind Regards,

Greg Olson
