Freelancers, Alone No More: Coworking Is Going Big Business How Big Business Are Using Coworking Spaces
There's a seismic shift in how large companies they are envisioning their own internal real estate. That shift is toward mobility.
When it came time for Warecorp to finally have a physical headquarters, CEO Chris Dykstra decided against the traditional office space route. Instead, the software and web services company bought a group membership at a downtown Minneapolis coworking space for its 10 U.S. employees to use when they aren’t visiting clients.
"I just thought, you know, there's really no reason why you couldn't just embed all of your infrastructure in existing coworking spaces," says Dykstra, whose office is now a “campsite,” a hexagon-shaped pod partitioned from others like it with semi-transparent screens.
