Because Austin has become such a hub for startups and entrepreneurs, coworking has grown in popularity among the business community. Companies that offer coworking spaces for their smaller teams and remote workers have successfully avoided Austin’s rising commercial real estate prices. It’s a cool idea that’s gaining traction as businesses look for alternatives to renting out entire buildings.
There are so many great places to visit these days, so here is a list of some of our favorites.
