Why do you go coworking?

What are you’re top three reason for buying a membership to a coworking space? I know “the benefits of coworking” but I’d like to hear from people who actually use coworking spaces. Why do you make the decision to spend your money on coworking?

Thanks for your insight!

  1. I used to run a coworking space so I felt the need to support a local coworking space.

  2. I have little kids at home and a mother-in-law so I need to escape the house to get any work done.

  3. If I am going to plow through 5-8 hours of paperwork, I want to do it with a comfortable chair, somewhere to store my external monitor, somewhere to store my extra power adapter for my laptop + an external mouse & keyboard. My productivity is pretty bad without these things in coffee shops, the library, etc…

Hi Rachel

One of our members surveyed our community a year ago to make this infographic: http://www.pureedesign.com/design-portfolio/skiff_brighton_infographic_design/

The top three reasons they found were:

  1. Sense of community

  2. Getting out of the house

  3. Increase in productivity

It’s a bit outdated, but here’s a report we had done in 2011:

This one is newer and a mix of quantitative and qualitative data:
