If you've heard about the concept of co-working and want to know more about why entrepreneurs choose co-working space over working from home, read on to see what Club Workspace business owners believe to be the best aspects of being part of a co-working community.

We asked five Club Workspace members what makes co-working such an attractive proposition for business start-ups in London.

What’s the best thing about co-working?

“Overhearing other people’s business challenges and plans, and being reminded we’re all either ‘building the bridge as we go’, or ‘carving away bits of the rock that aren’t sculpture’. It’s a brain-ache, and it’s fascinating.”

Oliver Payne, founder of behavioural insight and communications agency The Hunting Dynasty, who's based at Club Workspace London Bridge.

“Working with others who really can understand and appreciate where you are coming from. Most of us will know that all companies have their ups and downs and it’s great to be surrounded by like-minded people who understand this. Collaboration and co-working make for an incredible combination. Also, it’s always great meeting new faces.”

Nigel Camp, founder of DevilBoy Productions and filmmaker, producer, international keynote speaker and tutor at General Assembly, who is based at Club Workspace Portobello.

“Co-working is not only a flexible and cost-effective solution for businesses and freelancers needing office space, it’s also a fantastic way to grow your network and meet like-minded people.”

Kelly Gilmour-Grassam, founder of Making You Content and winner of the IPSE Young Freelancer of the Year Award 2015, who's based at Club Workspace Kennington.

“Meeting new people for sure! My business is all about building relationships, so making new contacts and connections is key.”

Ben Matthews, digital, social media and content marketing consultant and founder of content-marketing agency Montfort, who you'll find at Club Workspace Bethnal Green.

“It’s flexible and less expensive than a proper office, allows you to meet other like-minded companies/entrepreneurs and at the same time, with Workspace, you get state-of-the-art facilities.”

Jacopo Cordero di Vonzo, co-founder and MD of Remeo Gelato, based at Club Workspace Clerkenwell.
