Today, coworking seems to be a lifestyle for freelancers, remote workers, and startups across the world. But that hasn’t always been the case, coworking has a bit of history, dating back to 2005.
Freelancers and solo entrepreneurs aren’t the only ones running to rent a desk or workspace at the latest coworking spot. Large corporations like IBM, Amazon, and Microsoft are adding to the growing demand for coworking spaces, an industry that is projected to grow to over 30,000 spaces by the year 2022. That’s a growth of about 16%!
Getting into coworking spaces as a freelancer can be daunting. Working from the couch or home office is comfortable and familiar, but after a while it can be just as monotonous and stifling as your usual 9-5. If you’ve tried the local coffee shops, the library, or your fellow freelancer’s place, you know how much of a road block those environments can be.
April 4th, The Ranch Office will be throwing open its doors for its first “Ranch Roundup.” This grand opening will feature the same Texas theme as the new Houston based coworking space, with a BBQ, live music, happy hour, and networking. If you’re looking to enjoy some live country music, rustle up some new connections, or just check out the amazing new space, this is the right event.
