Permanent office space is often a deferred luxury for many startups, with development, deadlines, deals, limited resources, and payroll to worry about.
That is just one of the many reasons why coworking has become a national trend (according to Cushman & Wakefield, there is 34.1 million square feet of coworking space in the United States, accounting for more than 2% of total office inventory), with entrepreneurs and businesses abandoning the traditional office space model in favor of flexibility and shared amenities.
There are many options to choose from, ranging from national companies like WeWork and established real estate giants to smaller local office spaces, and navigating the benefits of one over another can be difficult at times.
