Coworking is a shared work environment where entrepreneurs can build a social and collaborative community. Getting out of your home office or local coffee shop and into a coworking environment can offer powerful support, and the connections you form can lead to productive brainstorming sessions, new perspectives, and even partnerships. Coworking spaces like HUB Raleigh also offer great opportunities for frequent social events, programming and trainings. If you are a startup or established business, give coworking a try! Need one more incentive? HUB Raleigh offers members free coffee and beer!
