Launched in Germany, coworking quickly spread to the United States, where it grew rapidly before arriving in Luxembourg in a more refined form. Workplaces specifically dedicated to coworking have sprung up all over Luxembourg. Here you will discover the functionning of a coworking space works, and what are its standards and regulations?
How it works
Coworking is a new way of working that gives you the freedom to be your own boss without the disadvantages of working from home. Basically, you get everyone together in a large shared space and let the magic happen…
In addition to the obvious savings (sharing rent and other secondary costs), such an organization allows you to meet people that can be crucial in a person’s career.
To expand your professional network and foster the kind of synergies that often lead to collaborations, coworking spaces are the ideal setting.
Who is it for?
While coworking spaces are often geared towards digital sectors, they can be used by anyone.
If you’re a freelance consultant and want to get close to startups, these spaces are perfect for you. Both for convenience and for strategic purposes.
The functioning of a coworking space
Most coworking spaces require a monthly fee to use their facilities. Users can choose from a variety of packages to best suit their needs.
The Color Business Center, for example, offers great prices for frequent collaborators, but we also have a few spaces available to occasional visitors.
Which of the following services are offered?
Most coworking spaces provide an open space where users can use a desk or a seat at a common table, as well as wifi and many practical amenities (printer, phone, etc.) that may or may not be included in the price.
The Color Business Center also has conference rooms equipped with video projectors. We also provide private offices for those who wish to work in peace and quiet.
For your convenience, we have installed high-speed Wi-Fi, telephones and storage in each workstation.
For each location, there is a set of rules. Users are required to bring their own computer beyond the first two or three basic recommendations.
Coworking spaces, on the other hand, are governed by one rule: courtesy. Remember, you’re not just there to sulk in your chair! To succeed in the coworking world, you must be willing to share your resources.
The economic impact of coworking
Coworking spaces make money not only by renting out their space, but also by selling additional services or food and beverages (when not included in the basic packages).
When multiple workspaces are combined in a coworking space, entrepreneurs can work in a quiet atmosphere while accessing a new professional network that was previously out of reach.
