When starting your business, the single biggest expense you will have is rental payments on your office space, or in most cases, your coworking space. While you can try working from home and allocating an extra room or space in your residence, this strategy comes with its own set of challenges. Fortunately, your coworking space doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg, even in the bustling city of Sydney. As you work to get your startup off the ground, here are some affordable coworking spaces in Sydney.
