WHAT IS COWORKING?
Where It All Began
Brad Neuberg is credited with starting the coworking movement in San Francisco in 2005 with the idea to combine the independence of freelancing with the structure and community of an office space.
To do this, he invented the word “coworking” with no hyphen. Unlike a traditional office, coworking spaces consist of members who work for a range of different companies, ventures, and projects. Because there is little direct competition or internal politics, they don’t feel they have to put on a work persona to fit in. Working amidst people doing different kinds of work can also make one’s own work identity stronger.
In 2017, there were 13,800 coworking spaces globally. The Cooperative Venture Workspace is proudly one of them in Portsmouth, NH.
