3 Reasons Millennials Choose Coworking

The co-working community in San Diego continues to thrive, as there are new facilities what seems to be weekly.  There are now over 50 co-work facilitates in some form across the county.  Each offers something different.  Many people have asked me if just a trend or if its here to stay.  Its early to tell, but I think its here to stay.  While on a square foot basis they are much more expensive than their traditional office counterparts, the flexibility and capital efficiency they provide the business far out weighs that added cost.

Do you have questions about co-working?  We would be happy to answer them.
