Coworking in numbers

Coworking became an attractive concept because back when it first started to appear, it countered the pejorative views of the traditional office. If we look back to just a few years ago, coworking was considered to be a “movement” or a trend, with many believing it would fade away.

In 2019  coworking is a full-blown industry that has become the new norm
